MED Group revamps mobility repair program

Friday, May 31, 2002

LUBBOCK, Texas - The MED Group tweaked its Certified Repair Center program to make it more valuable to members and hired a long-time Everest & Jenning employee with years of technical experience to run it. Former E&J and Mulholland Positioning Systems employee, Dick Fuller, brings 18 years of sales, marketing and technical experience to MED. The CRC program offers technical training on mobility products taught by participating manufacturers. To make attendance easier for members and manufacturers, MED will now hold CRC training at various locations around the United States rather than MED's headquarters here. MED will also consolidate troubleshooting on products used by more than one manufacturer into one class.
