OUR HISTORY

Looking ahead to 2023 we are going to be out and about exhibiting at Events all around the UK. We will be continuing to support and collaborate with VET PD and Improve International and provide equipment for their CPD Days and courses.

We have a new look website and the team is continuing to grow. We are doing more work alongside influencers in the Veterinary industry so be sure to keep an eye out for some more engaging content across our social media pages.

With the Covid-19 Pandemic just about behind us we are looking forward to “normal” life again. Its been an exciting start to the year increasing our sales team from 1 to 3 meaning we can get out and about to more practices!

We extended our best wished to Paul Harris, who retiered on the 31st May 2022. Paul was an esteemed director since the merge in 2018, and he will be greatly missed by colleagues and customers alike in the day-to-day running. Paul will continue to support as a X-ray Specialist for the forseeable future.

The demand for pre-owned equipment is soaring! We have welcomed a Warehouse Technician to the team based at our Head Office to support the refurbishment of pre-owned equipment and support with in-house repiars.

Looking to the year ahead

I think we are all looking forward to 2022 arriving. We have been working hard behind the scenes and have some exciting new product launches and training programmes.

We are looking forward to seeing you again at many of the Events and Congresses throughout the year.

We had an exciting year, with the launch of our new company, Photon Surgical Systems Ltd.

Surgical Systems Ltd and Photon Imaging Systems Ltd joined forces to offer their customers an extensive range of products and a higher level of technical support.  Our two companies had so much in common with a shared ethos of providing the best quality products at affordable prices and fully supporting them with our team of highly skilled and experienced technicians and engineers.

The new management team have a wealth of experience to offer.

David Harvey qualified from the University of Glasgow as a veterinary surgeon in 1979 and went on to open three successful veterinary practices in 1985, 1987 and 1995.  He set up Surgical Systems in 1987.

Paul Harris has been in the X-ray & Imaging industry for over 30 years working in both medical and veterinary fields.  18 years ago he started Photon Imaging Systems, a specialist veterinary X-ray Imaging company, and has grown the business into one of the leading companies in its field in the country today.

Medical Equipment in Gloucestershire

With Surgical Systems going from strength-to-strength David decided to sell the Practices to focus on expanding the business. This expansion meant the business would include not only Veterinary but Dental and Medical sectors as well.

David’s medical knowledge allowed him to do further research into new products allowing Surgical Systems to widen its range of quality products as well as offering invaluable advice from David’s experience within the Veterinary industry.
