Experienced distributor to support strong Agfa HealthCare portfolio
Agfa HealthCare South Africa (agfa.com) conducted an extensive search to find a company that would complement its strong product portfolio in healthcare imaging and IT. This move signals a new era for Agfa HealthCare in South Africa. The choice of a distributor was critical, as Agfa HealthCare needed to find an organization that could offer real added value to the company and, even more importantly, to its customers.
Kunene Health Care, based in Johannesburg, is lead by CEO Dr. Derrick Mthembu and Dr. Dudu Kunene, both of whom bring significant healthcare knowledge and experience to the company. Over the past few years, they have turned Kunene into an organization that has a national distribution capability, that understands its customers' needs and that delivers those needs in a cost-effective manner.
Improving services to Agfa HealthCare customers in the market
Betsie Swart, General Manager region South Africa for Agfa HealthCare, comments,"I am pleased that we will be working with Kunene Health Care as our distributor for South Africa, and I am confident that our good name and great products, supported by Kunene's own excellent reputation in the market, will produce synergies that will further improve our services to customers in South Africa."
Dr. Mthembu, CEO of Kunene Health Care South Africa, explains,"I am extremely excited to be part of this new era of healthcare for South Africa, and to be working with Agfa HealthCare, which is a world-class organization with world-class products and people. The benefits of our two companies working together will produce significant advantages to our customers."
