It is hard to believe but it has been almost been a year since Medical Mart and Medline forged their unique partnership. Now, with our alliance strongly solidified, Medical Mart has added a vast manufacturing capability to our already strong distribution presence in the Canadian Healthcare market and customers are already starting to see the benefits. Not only do we distribute all of the very best products and brands across the country but, now, we also manufacture our own exclusive line of high quality products as well.
This allows us much better control over pricing and supply, as well as product options unavailable to any of our competitors. In this regard, the partnership between Medline and Medical Mart will serve to insulate our customers here, offering varied and standardized product offering; multi-tiered pricing models; and diversified investments in manufacturing and logistics which will help maintain pricing and service levels for years to come.
