Medical device manufacturer Bedfont Scientific has acquired its first overseas office in Salzburg, Austria.

The European office was purchased from Dr. Lahner GmbH, Bedfont’s first distributor when the company began exporting in 1988.

“The plan has always been to branch out with additional offices strategically located across the globe, but Brexit has expediated this process to a small extent – regardless, I am very happy to announce that we have acquired our first European office,” said Jason Smith, Managing Director at Bedfont.
