Support from Manufacturers

Hitachi has maintained a relationship with the principles of this company since 1986 when they supplied oil-less reciprocating air compressors to them as Fluid Energy to be used in Medical Air packages. This relationship and support continues today through Patton’s Medical by supplying us with both the reciprocating and the scroll air compressor pumps.

 

Patton’s Medical chose Busch for the vacuum offering because of their high quality pumps that are made in the U.S. and their experience of 25 years in the medical market.
