A Canadian company with operations on three continents
Thanks to our global network and Health Canada and FDA approved manufacturing facilities in the United States, China, Taiwan, France, the United Kingdom, Singapore, the Netherlands and Canada, Medicom is uniquely positioned to meet the exponential demand for personal protective equipment such as face masks, medical gowns and other infection control products, even during crises such as global pandemics.
Extensive experience in the execution of government contracts
In addition to its existing contracts in France, Hong Kong, Singapore, the United Kingdom and the United States with the Department of Defense (D.O.D.), the Veteran’s Association (V.A.) and various state health agencies, the Canadian and Quebec governments are among the latest of a growing number of authorities around the world to enter into long-term partnerships with Medicom.
When Medicom founder Ronald Reuben was just 23 years old, a conversation with a friend changed the course of his life. From that conversation, Reuben learned that the AIDS crisis had created an urgent need for personal protective equipment for healthcare workers. Following his entrepreneurial instincts and desire to make a difference, he immediately set to work developing high-quality medical examination gloves under the SafeTouch brand.
Demand grew rapidly and it wasn’t long before Mr. Reuben purchased his own factory. He equipped himself with state-of-the-art technology, traveled the world to source the highest quality raw materials and hired leading scientific experts to design and develop the most reliable personal protective equipment on the market. This unwavering commitment to quality, reliability and continuous innovation has earned Medicom the trust of healthcare professionals worldwide.
Today, with more than 30 years of scientific expertise, manufacturing facilities in North America, Europe and Asia, and a global network of suppliers, Medicom offers a wide range of personal protective equipment (PPE), infection control solutions and patient care products used by millions of professionals around the world every day.
Ronald Reuben founded A.R. Medicom in Montreal, Quebec, and launched the Medicom SafeTouch® glove brand in response to the urgent need for medical gloves, which were among the precautions mandated by the World Health Organization (WHO) to protect healthcare workers against the HIV (AIDS) virus.
