Economic Growth Still Exists in Durable Medical Equipment Industry

Florida Medical Equipment Supplier Acquires New Facility, Creates Jobs

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire - February 13, 2009) - In an economy on the brink of disaster, stories of companies experiencing rapid growth are few and far between. Few industries have been immune to the rapid economic downturn, but the home-delivery medical supply industry continues to grow despite Americans having less income. Florida durable medical equipment supplier TOTAL e-MEDICAL has experienced a 200 percent increase in total revenue over each of the past three years.

"No matter what is currently happening economically, people will always need their diabetic testing supplies, ostomy supplies, and pain management products," said Gerald Freshman, CEO of TOTAL e-MEDICAL, a leading supplier of diabetes products and other durable medical equipment. "Our business has experienced unprecedented growth in terms of revenue, and employee numbers."

TOTAL e-MEDICAL has hired multiple employees in the past month and will continue to hire as part of a move to a new, 18,000-square-foot facility located in Pompano Beach, Florida. As part of the expansion which begins March 1st, TOTAL e-MEDICAL is looking to increase its workforce over the next six months, creating jobs in a market where the unemployment rate hovers around 7 percent.

"Beginning March 1st, we will begin moving to our new building and soon after we will begin the hiring process," said Freshman. "The diabetic supply industry and the durable medical equipment industry, as a whole, continue to remain very strong. This has allowed us to grow and contribute to the Florida economy."
