Who is IMCO?

In today’s increasingly challenging marketplace, it can be difficult for independent medical supply distributors to remain just that–independent. IMCO was founded in 1981 to address that exact need–to give independent medical supply distributors the same purchasing power as large national medical supply distribution companies. That was nearly 35 years ago, and we are proud to say we are still the premier association for independent medical supply distributors that are dedicated to remaining independent.
