Mr First Aid was opened in 1990 by Roy and Cathy Goldin primarily packing and selling first aid kits. From making what was then known as a “Kramer bag” for Emergency Medical Services, the company has grown in leaps and bounds and today has acquired agencies from around the world for medical equipment.
Over the past twenty seven years, the company has been awarded many items in the EMS tender market and holds major government and mining contracts for various medical and first aid items. We have recently expanded into the hospital market with sutures and instruments added to our already vast range of products.
The company has embarked on a programme of local manufacture which has resulted in creating employment in producing products of a high quality for the local market from within our own borders.
Having recently acquired two companies, namely Fast First Aid and TS Dhlamini Medical, we have extended not only our client base but our product range as well. Mr First Aid has become a one-stop distributor supplying from a single bandage to the most sophisticated medical equipment.
We represent leading companies for a great number of years from around the world for medical equipment such as suction units, ventilators and defibrillators all of which are life saving equipment
As the staff of Mr First Aid work as a team, there is no formal management structure but the company is still overseen by Roy and Cathy.
