S Murray & Co’s Sales Manager, Tristan Murray, received a warm welcome during his sales visit to South Africa from 6th to 14th November 2010. The visit had two main motivations: to support the company’s exclusive distributor for surgical instruments and to reinforce the long-standing relationships with the company’s principle laboratory customers.
During the Summer of 2010, S Murray & Co agreed to appoint Medequip as their sole distributor for surgical instruments throughout South Africa. The relationship has been a solid one since the initial meeting to discuss drapers scissors on 22nd September 1980 between Peter Murray and Geoff Bacon, (S Murray and Medequip respectively). Over 40 years later, the relationship has grown from strength to strength and S Murray and Co is proud to support Medequip in the marketplace, with Tristan Murray and Quenton Greene taking on the roles today.
The laboratory relationships have a similar length of history behind them. Although the names may have changed over the years, the relationships with Merck NT and Laboratory & Scientific Equipment Supplies remain steadfast. Sales have predominantly focused on the SAMCO brand of glass and plasticware, with particular emphasis on the dairy, mining and agricultural applications of the product range. S Murray & Co is now looking forward to supporting the market for hopefully the next 40 years too!
