Mentor, OH / Calgary, Alberta, (PRWEB) May 31, 2005
SourceOne Healthcare Technologies, Inc. and Imaging Dynamics Company, LTD. (IDC TSXV: IDL), today announced the companies have signed an exclusive distribution agreement giving SourceOne exclusive rights to sell IDCÂs XplorerÂ DR systems to all branches of the U.S. Military and U.S. Government Agencies.
SourceOne is the nationÂs leading distributor of medical imaging systems, equipment, radiographic consumable supplies, and services to healthcare facilities. IDC manufactures and markets its innovative direct digital radiography (DR) solution to hospitals, imaging centers, specialty clinics, and orthopaedic centers. Both companies initiated a highly successful nationwide distribution agreement to serve Government as well as civilian customers in November 2004.
ÂWe have a long and rewarding history of servicing the Government sector,Â said Jerry C. Cirino, president and CEO, SourceOne Healthcare Technologies. ÂWe are pleased to help Government customerÂs transition from analog to digital solutions, first with OREX CR units, and now with IDCÂs distinctive DR solution.Â
ÂWe are very excited about delivering our innovative, reliable, and affordable DR technology to Government customers,Â said Darryl Stein, president and CEO, Imaging Dynamics Co. ÂSourceOneÂs excellent reputation with the Government sector presents a solid opportunity to combine our individual strengths and meet the growing demand for digital radiography in this important marketplace.Â He added, ÂWorking closely with SourceOneÂs experienced sales force, we will jointly serve Government customers ranging from the Federal Bureau of Prisons, Indian Health Services, and the Veterans Administration, to all branches of the U.S. Military, including the Navy, Air Force, Marines and Army.Â
ÂDuring the past 18 months, SourceOne has delivered hundreds of OREX CR units to branches of the U.S. Military,Â said Cirino. ÂTo date, most of these units have been deployed in Iraq, Afghanistan and various military installations. Building on this success, we anticipate IDCÂs innovative and affordable DR solution will prove to be equally successful in serving un-met needs in branches of the U.S. Military and non-military Government agencies, alike.Â
