Bedfont celebrates 45 years of business in 70's style
Local medical device manufacturer, Bedfont Scientific Ltd., returns to the era it all began for its 45th birthday

Jason Smith, Managing Director, remarks, "Back in 1976 the incidence of serious hazards related to medical gas supply systems was described as 'alarming'. My favourite inspirational quote is 'a pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity, an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty' from Winston Churchill. I think this describes very aptly how my godfather, John Marron, went on to design and manufacture Bedfont's first ever product; the TM3 Medi-Gas Check for ensuring gas supply systems were safe before use. This product undoubtedly saved lives and started Bedfont on a road of life-saving gas monitors. Back then, Bedfont employed one person and was based in a bedsit in London; now we employ 50 direct staff, have over 80 global distributors, and even have our own offices in Kent and Austria. We will continue to innovate new non-invasive breath analysis devices to bring these life-saving products into people's homes worldwide, and hope to do so for the next 45 years!"
