Who is IMCO?
In today’s challenging marketplace, it can be difficult for the Independent Medical Distributor to remain just that – independent. IMCO was founded in 1981 to give the Independent Medical Distributor the same purchasing power as large national medical supply distribution companies and provide the support they need to grow. Now in our 5th decade, we are proud to be the premier Independent Medical Distributor association.

Michael V. Carver, National Corporate Account Director(former)
Midmark has had a very long standing partnership with the IMCO organization. It has been a great partnership. IMCO has always been dedicated to growing our business with their membership and has held our partnership in high regard. Many people use the term “partnership” rather loosely. When it comes to IMCO, their actions show the real meaning of the word. IMCO has always provided terrific tools for both their manufacturing partners and their member distributors. The more we take advantage of the many tools they provide, the more our business grows. We have had a long record of success with the IMCO organization and their member distributors.
Dick Moorman, Vice President (former), Distributor Relations
