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.
