First Medica was founded in 1991 by Jeffrey Drometer who perceived a need for delivering value priced infection control products to the health care industry. Mr. Drometer’s vision was to provide value priced consumable products such as gloves, cleaning products, and barrier protection to health care professionals while offering choices to the end user. Mr. Drometer noted that while consumers wanted good value for their money they also wanted choices. At the time protective apparel typically was offered only in blue or hospital green. First Medica created a line of products in a rainbow of colors with extra features—all the while undercutting market leaders in cost. In the mid 1990’s First Medica introduced the Hilux line of halogen curing lights. Hilux lights offered performance levels of lights priced twice as high with solid construction and an industry leading 2-year warranty. Building on the success of Hilux, a Blast line of LED curing lights was introduced in 2006. This line continued to expand in 2008 with the introduction of the Blast Lite, Mini-Blast, and the Blast Plus. First Medica continues to offer infection control products and is expanding into small equipment built on the same philosophy.
