Bothell, WA - Cardiac Science Corporation, a global leader in automated external defibrillator (AED) and diagnostic cardiac monitoring devices, announced today it won the national 2009 IMCO Winner's Circle Vendor of the Year award. Independent Medical Co-Op, Inc. (IMCO) is a premier association for independent medical distributors.
IMCO functions as a full-service marketing group, uniting the best medical products in the industry with independent distributors located across the nation.
"Cardiac Science has always been an important vendor for IMCO, but the unwavering support from Cardiac Science through these challenging times is what earned them the Winner's Circle Vendor of the Year award," said Phil Childrey, IMCO director of equipment development. "Cardiac Science makes the IMCO Winner's Circle Program a component of its overall sales strategy, and its sales force does a remarkable job supporting our individual members."
"The Winner's Circle Vendor of the Year award is an important achievement for Cardiac Science since IMCO represents a significant distributor network for Cardiac Science products," said Darryl Lustig, Cardiac Science vice president of distribution.
"We work very closely with IMCO and value the relationship we've developed over the years," Lustig said. "This award demonstrates the sales possibilities when IMCO, its independent distributor members, and Cardiac Science work together."
IMCO was established in 1981, partnering with key manufacturers and all sizes of distributors throughout North America with the goal of uniting independent medical distributors to compete against the national competitors. IMCO was designed to keep the independent medical distributor independent through direct relationships with vendors and negotiating total volume pricing for their members.
