Two Medical Equipment Companies Launch New Business

Beacon International and Express Systems and Parts Network have announced a joint equipment, parts and service company named Phoenix Medical.

Phoenix Medical’s new office has opened in Cairo, Egypt and will service the Middle East and Africa. Phoenix Medical has hired Hamdy Hassan to head operations in Cairo. Hassan is an industry veteran with 30 years of experience and has recently retired from Philips.

“We are excited with this opportunity as it has been in the works for a very long time. Phoenix Medical is a natural progression as our customers have requested parts sales and support for the equipment they have purchased from us. We are now able to provide throughout the Middle East and Africa the equipment sales, parts support and the technical expertise customers have been asking for,” said Jon DeRoost, president of Beacon International.

Akram Abdelaal, President of Express Systems and Parts Network, agreed.

“We finally came up with the formula to work in the Middle East and Africa, having the opportunity to sell parts and service,” Abdelaal said. “With today’s currency changes and the need for more parts and services than ever before, we have established a company that can meet and surmount these challenges.”
