Optimism at Drive DeVilbiss

May 1, 2017

ATLANTA – For those heading to Medtrade 2017 (175 days from now), Port Washington, NY-based Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare will again be returning as an exhibitor. Ed Link, chief marketing officer, Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare, looks forward to showcasing Drive’s “extensive array of new products” at the show, scheduled for Oct 23-26, 2017, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.

Drive DeVilbiss has made quite a few acquisitions over the last couple of years. According to Link, the acquisitions complement the company’s product portfolio both domestically and abroad, while expanding the company’s overall manufacturing capabilities and enhancing its global presence.

“We continue to be optimistic about the industry,” mused Link. “Certainly there are unprecedented changes affecting the industry, but we are confident that together with the providers, we can navigate through these changes and continue to provide value.”

Link confirmed that “new products will be a critical component of our Medtrade plans” as part of an overall strategy that values in-person meetings and conventions. “We continue to participate in many trade shows in various markets, and although technology provides efficient and cost-saving delivery of
messages, we continue to see value in face-to-face dialogue with our
customers and industry experts,” said Link. “Having the opportunity to meet many of these people
at one venue provides invaluable insights into our organization.”
