BOC Medical, a member of The Linde Group, is to become the exclusive distributor of BPR Medical Ltd (BPR)?s innovative Carn?t? range of oxygen and suction therapy equipment in the UK and Ireland.
BPR design and manufacture products that are leaders in their class and provide unrivalled quality and reliability. BOC has supported BPR for many years by endorsing the Carn?t? Demand Valve for Entonox. Undertaking sole distributor responsibility is a logical and timely extension of this relationship, bringing together two market-leading companies and allowing gas users to go direct to BOC as a single source for gas and equipment requirements.
The recent Department of Health Technical Memorandum 05-03 on Fire Safety in the NHS recommends a consideration of the use of oxygen fire break devices in hospitals as part of risk assessment and best practice. Fire break devices are already mandatory in the Home Care environment where BOC currently provides oxygen directly to over 18,000 patients in the UK. BPR and BOC have worked closely together to provide the only firebreak device available on the market.
This strategic development ensures that BPR?s focus on developing the most innovative products is matched by unsurpassed coverage, product support and a first class service team. This announcement also coincides with the worldwide launch of the Carn?t FireSafe? flowmeter, which gives a new standard of accuracy and performance.
Steve Ellis, BOC Medical?s Regional Manager, said: We are extremely pleased to extend our relationship with BPR Medical and act as their distributor for the Carn?t? range of equipment. This agreement will give customers an even wider range of options within our complete gas delivery offer.
Richard Radford, Managing Director, BPR Medical Ltd, said: In partnering with BOC we effectively marry market-leading products with market-leading distribution. BOC has unparalleled history and experience in the area of medical gas products and this will be used to provide customers with a superior service.
