About Us

Vision / Mission

Medequip is committed to serving healthcare nationwide. With more than two decades of collective experience in the medical industry we pride ourselves in supplying quality products and provide our customers with professional service.


The company was founded in October 1980 by the late Geoff Bacon. Trading began under the name Miba Snips (Pty) Ltd and in July 1995 was registered as Miba Snips T/A Medequip. Our customer base grew from small tenders supplying scissors to major surgical and dental instrument contracts to the public sector. Our focus extended to the private sector in the mid 90’s allowing the opportunity of preferred suppliers to the major Private Hospital Groups in South Africa.

Our people are the key to our success – continuously striving to adopt a culture of honest, flexibility and commitment to our customers. We maintain high ethics in business and are focused on our customer’s needs.
