Meditron ASA – 2003 Update
Welch Allyn, Inc. of Skaneateles, New York and Meditron ASA of
Vettre, Norway recently updated and renewed the distribution agreement
between our two companies. Over the past three years, we have
distributed the Meditron Stethoscope and related products in major
world medical and veterinary markets. During this period, the
line and brand have been successfully established.
To improve sales, a second stethoscope has been developed answering
the demand for a less costly product that could be positioned
in the cardiology-grade, mechanical stethoscope market segment.
In light of the initial sales of this product, we have high expectations
for increased sales. Already, we have won several large contracts
for delivery this year.
We look forward to an ever-growing presence in this developing
market and to increased co-operative efforts with Meditron.
