This year CMEPP celebrates its 25th anniversary. That’s a significant milestone for a business forged by a few Toronto-based biomedical engineers determined to find ways to save money on medical equipment and repairs. There were some nervous days in the beginning as they wondered, “Would it work? Was the model well thought out?”
