2016 is a milestone year for Breas Medical because it’s celebrating its 25 year anniversary. From humble beginnings in 1991 in Sweden, Breas has grown into a global respiratory medical device company. “It has been a fantastic journey,” says Ulf Jönsson, managing director of Breas and one of the founders of the company, in a release. “We have always been driven by an entrepreneurial spirit, closeness to our customers and the vision to improve the quality of life of patients with respiratory disorders.”
With a focus on users, medical staff and homecare providers, Breas has built a track record of developing innovative solutions for homecare ventilation that make treatment more effective, easier or less costly. Moreover, attractive Swedish [or Scandinavian] design has always been a signature of the Breas products.
Since February 2014, Breas Medical is an affiliate of PBM Capital Group based in Charlottesville, VA, USA. The Breas Medical Group consists of Breas, Human Design Medical (USA), and B&D Electromedical (UK). Breas successfully markets the Vivo and iSleep product ranges with the latest introduction of the Vivo 60 life support (pediatric capable) ventilator. Human Design Medical has developed the Z1 CPAP, and B&D Electromedical is a leading ventilator company in the United Kingdom with the Nippy brand. The Breas Medical Group has a rich pipeline of new products and will remain in the forefront of ventilation therapy. Altogether, Breas Medical is a global company selling in more than 40 countries through a network of subsidiaries (Sweden, UK, France, Spain, Germany, USA) and highly specialized distributors.
Multiple product launches are planned for 2016 and there are many growth opportunities in Europe, the United States, and other countries around the world. “There are hundreds of thousands of patients who have benefited from using a Breas medical device. We look forward to celebrating another 25 years and supporting millions of new patients,” says Damian deGoa, President and CEO. “Together we will have a great 2016 and a bright future ahead of us.”
