On 1st October 2019, Williams Medical Supplies Ltd acquired the SP Services business – a leading distributor of medical consumables and equipment for first aid, ambulance, paramedic and rescue professionals in the blue light, defence, prisons and occupational health sectors.
Founded in 1989 by Steve Bray, the business has grown from strength-to-strength under Steve’s ownership and is a trusted partner to first responders in the UK, Ireland and beyond. “It’s been a real privilege to work with so many amazing customers over the past 30 years, it still makes me so proud whenever I see our products being used by our customers to help those who are sick, injured or in the midst of some emergency. I’ve known the team at Williams Medical for many decades and I’m confident that they share the same customer focused values that I’ve always believed in. I will still continue to be a brand ambassador for SP, after all it’s in my DNA, so I still hope to bump into you from time to time” – Steve Bray
