Mobile Instrument Service & Repair
The Logan County Area Chamber of Commerce would like to recognize Mobile Instrument Service & Repair, Inc. as December’s Business/Entrepreneur of the Month.
In 1978, a family in Bellefontaine, Ohio pioneered the OnSite Repair Industry. After spending years in operating rooms selling orthopedic implants, Dwight Reed, and his sons, Mick, Jerry, and Charlie, saw firsthand how frustrated surgeons were with dull instruments. They began driving dull instruments to Indiana for sharpening on the weekends. Chief Executive Officer, Mick Reed, recalls his mother, Elizabeth, telling them at a Sunday dinner that she had an idea; “Why don’t you build a sharpening truck that can travel to the hospitals instead of taking instruments away from the hospitals?” Her idea was genius. That year, the Reed family introduced the first Mobile Instrument sharpening truck in the industry to hospitals in Central Ohio.
By 1980, Mobile Instrument had expanded into Michigan, Florida, and Indiana. With a vision to take the company nationwide, the Reed brothers enlisted the help of their sister, Anne, for national advertising. Together, they grew Mobile Instrument nationwide and quickly became known as the most trusted name in surgical instrument repair. (READ MORE)
