In 1986, Andy Bala started ABS Med selling and servicing Leica surgical microscopes, Microtek Medical products and other operating room devices. Thirty years later, ABS has expanded to over 20 employees, covering nine states in the Midwest. Our office is convenient to both O’Hare and Midway airports.
In June 2010, ABS made the decision to terminate their 24 year relationship with Leica and began selling Zeiss microscopes in January 2011. Also in 2011, ABS became an employee owned company. Our employees are proud to stand behind the products we sell and the service we provide.
Effective October 1, 2017 Andy Bala stepped up to be the CEO of ABS Med while Mike Phillips has been appointed President of the company. Mike has been an ABS sales rep for over 24 years, being an integral part of the growth of the company. He has always shows great dedication and commitment to his customers. Mike’s appointment is a clear reflection of the company’s current state: ready to take on the future.
