Firstly, could you shed light on MedboX company? What was its inception like? And what are the vision and missions it operates upon?
MedboX SAL was launched in October 2016 with the goal to become a leading company in the healthcare business industry supporting multinational companies to penetrate various markets across the region focusing in the beginning on Public Safety and EMS segments, growing into Military and Hospitals segments where we currently are at this stage.
The start was difficult at all levels, however, discipline, and consistency was the major key success factors to where we are now. Today’s vision is to expand in product portfolio and geographically in the region and beyond where we have projects in the pipelines.
What are the expected goals?
Our current goals are to continue serving the healthcare sector with our Diamond Standards representing only worldwide leading suppliers each in its segment on one hand. On the other hand, we are growing our pool of distributors in the region to reach more markets and more segments.
