In 1980 Jeff was employed as an assistant director of RT for a mobile management company in a small rural hospital. He began repairing the treatment machines for giving aerosols. A graduate of Vincennes University with an A.A. for Respiratory Therapy, Jeff also attended Puritan Bennett service school in 1980 to learn how to repair AP-5s, PR-2s, MA-1s and more. Later, Jeff continued work as a therapist and also had side work repairing nursing home equipment, and began capitalizing on his talent for finding and selling needed equipment.
"I started out selling anything and everything under the sun," he says--occasionally learning tough lessons of unscrupulous associates or clients, but always maintaining his own integrity and ethics. After moving to full-time sales, Jeff began outsourcing repair needs. He points out that maintaining and selling good preowned equipment can be considered part of the "green" movement, preventing such machines from going to waste in a landfill.
Jeff has a domestic U.S. and international market including India, Egypt, Switzerland, Australia, Brazil, Argentina, and Germany. He has found that language barriers sometimes provide challenges. However Jeff has been successful in developing good workable communication methods through instant messaging and email that have helped his business. For the domestic market, he sells to most of North America, and has developed more contacts through DOTmed. Jeff's company offers several different warranties depending upon the customers' budget and needs, from "as-is" to one year.
