It’s in 1982 that everything begins. Back to when Serge Lachapelle was a professional in a multinational specialized in anesthesia equipment, something clicked for him. Why not use his expertise in the human field to refine veterinary equipment, adapt to their needs and maximize their performance? Here. It was enough for Dispomed to see the light of day.
Building on its successes, Dispomed is rapidly expanding its horizons and developing new products. Our mission: offer high-end equipment ergonomically designed to facilitate your work and offer you comprehensive solutions. Since then, we have continued to surprise in the veterinary field with our innovative products, our service, our knowledge of the market and the expertise of our team.
Today, Dispomed is increasingly recognized internationally. Whether in private veterinary clinics, research centers, zoos, the reputation of our family business is well established. Dispomed has carved out a place of choice on every continent.
Moreover, many university faculties only preach by our products. Dispomed is THE reference from the University of Montreal to the University of Lyon, through those of Oregon, Kansas, Minnesota, Florida, and Toulouse, to name a few.
This reputation, Dispomed owes it to the attention paid to the quality of our veterinary equipment, which 90% of the components are manufactured at the Joliette plant. The close relationship with you, our customers, also allows us to develop products that are reliable, effective, durable and above all easy to use.
Thanks to you, dear customers, who accompanied us in our first steps, Dispomed can now have an international reputation.
