boc press release
BOC Healthcare has become the exclusive distributor of the Ohio Medical Corporation range of suction therapy devices in the UK.  The deal, which accelerates expansion of BOC's healthcare equipment portfolio, positions the company as a total solutions and service provider for suction and therapy (SOT) equipment.


It kicks off with BOC Healthcare, part of The Linde Group, launching a new patented technology 'Push-To-Set?' vacuum regulator range.  This equipment has a unique mechanism that automatically establishes a vacuum limit with each vacuum level setting or change thereby eliminating any need to occlude.  For the medical practitioner, it offers a reliable method of setting the regulator for safe suctioning and reduces risk to the patient. 


The agreement, which also sees BOC supplying Ohio Medical's legacy range of vacuum regulators, builds on the company's 2008 agreement with BPR Medical Ltd which brought oxygen therapy equipment into the BOC fold.


Supporting BOC's newly-extended range of SOT equipment, is its managed equipment service offering.  This value added capability, enables hospitals to outsource the responsibility of co-ordinating, managing and providing routine servicing and maintenance of all SOT devices and focus on the real job to hand - patient care.


Andrew Harvey, Head of BOC Healthcare, said, We are delighted to be developing a relationship with Ohio Medical and acting as the sole distributor in the UK for their range of suction equipment.  This partnership adds to BOC's equipment portfolio and provides our customers with a complete solution for their gas and suction needs.


David Finney - CEO Ohio Medical Corp, said, Ohio Medical Corporation is thrilled to have this partnership with BOC. Their strong distribution network in the UK coupled with Ohio's manufacturing leadership role in suction therapy will bring powerful solutions to our customers.


Ohio Medical Corporation is a US-based company with a 50 year heritage of supplying medical products.  It offers the broadest selection of vacuum regulators in the industry with its regulators especially designed for a number of clinical applications including airway, nagogastic and surgical suctioning as well as chest draining.
