AGB was founded in 1998 to offer a choice of service provider to Elscint gamma camera users, following the acquisition of Elscint by GE Medical. The company was established by Faith Gorman and John Baker, who today hold the positions of Managing Director and Technical Director respectively.
A new era of medical imaging support
We were determined to establish a totally new ethos in medical imaging equipment maintenance. Our vision was to provide an entirely new level of support in terms of quality, professionalism and excellent customer service.
Prior to the company's foundation, we instigated an in-depth review of what the modern healthcare market required from its service providers. The review’s findings became the basis upon which we shaped and developed our company structure and service contracts, allowing us to meet the needs of today's imaging equipment users.
As our reputation for excellence grew, we succeeded in being awarded the vast majority of Elscint gamma camera contracts within the UK.
Due to the market demand for our exceptional level of support we started to diversify into the maintenance of other types of gamma cameras, both in the UK and across Europe.
There was strong demand from hospitals for us to bring our unrivalled levels of service to the support of other types of imaging equipment. The area of greatest need was the support of mobile X-Ray systems. Consequently, in 2000, we brought our unique service philosophy to the provision of maintenance contracts for AMX mobile X-Ray systems in the UK.
Today, we offer support and service contracts on many different types of gamma camera systems as well as Nuclear Medicine workstations from most major manufacturers.
We provide support for a very large number of mobile X-Ray systems in the UK, both directly to Hospital Trusts and on a subcontracted basis for many of the major companies involved in the provision of PFI and managed services to the NHS.
We have experienced, highly-trained engineers based both in the UK and Belgium. In addition we run our own industry leading training centre.
Today, we have a large number of systems under contract in the UK and Belgium as well as in other parts of the world.
