Growing Medical Equipment Solutions

Tyler Thornberry founded Tristate Biomedical Solutions, quickly growing the company into a trusted source for medical equipment sales and service.   Originally located in Tyler’s garage in Independence, KY, the business has grown every year since its founding in 2009. We accomplished rapid growth by working with our customers as partners, learning their needs, and making efforts to save them money while providing them top customer service. In 2021, we expanded further through two acquisitions, adding a portfolio of respiratory products and extended strength in service for C-Arms, one of our top product categories.
