Convaid, R82 combine sales efforts
TORRANCE, Calif. – The sales and marketing teams at Convaid and R82 have been combined, Chris Braun, president of Etac North America, announced in a recent letter to partners. Convaid sold to Etac AB in 2015. Etac offers products for the pediatric market through its R82 brand. “I am happy to announce that as of May 1, 2016, we are combining the R82 and Convaid sales and marketing teams to bring you one premium pediatric product line to support your customers with the broadest offering to provide the child and their caregivers the greatest freedom and ability to go places,” he said. Among the benefits of the change, Braun says, is one business development rep in a territory to take care of all pediatric needs, whether it’s products from the Convaid or R82 brand. Convaid products will continue to be ordered, custom-made and shipped from Los Angeles. R82 products will continue to be ordered and shipped from Charlotte, N.C., Braun says.
