Back in the frame
Knight Imaging is once again flying its own flag, this time as part of the LabLogic Systems group.
Since the merger with Southern Scientific over 15 years ago, Knight Imaging has retained its strong presence and excellent reputation in the medical imaging market. However, following the acquisition of Southern Scientific by LabLogic Systems it seemed that the time was now right for Knight Imaging to assume its own individual identity once more.
The company will continue to develop and sell its extensive range of Ultrasound couches, patient chairs and X-Ray imaging accessories as it has done successfully since 1981. Certainly customers both past and present will continue to enjoy the excellent level of service and product quality that they have come to expect from Knight Imaging over the years.
Founded in 1981 by Anthony Knight in Worthing, West Sussex as 'Knight X-Ray Cassette Services,' Knight Imaging originally offered an X-Ray Cassette repair and replacement service. By 1985 the company had become Knight X-Ray and had begun to design and sell Lead Aprons and Ultrasound Couches to hospitals around the UK. The business grew and developed, and in 1995 a merger with the successful Nuclear and Optical Product import company Southern Scientific created the name Knight Imaging.
We have continued to sell Ultrasound Couches, developing ever more versatile, motorised models, as well as supplying X-Ray Viewers and accessories, Lead Aprons and protective wear, and developing the popular SIGMA motorised patient chairs.
In September 2011 Southern Scientific was acquired by LabLogic Systems and Anthony Knight retired from the company. LabLogic Systems was founded in 1980 by John Clapham as a supplier of radio TLC and HPLC instruments and associated software and has gone on to develop many products of its own, notably the Debra LIMS for ADME studies and Laura software package for chromatography data capture and analysis.
In 2012 LabLogic Systems decided to take over Knight Imaging, bringing in Andrew Williams to oversee sales and expand its reach across the UK. The company's offices are now based in Sheffield at LabLogic HQ.
Andrew Williams: Manager
Heading up the team is Andrew Williams. Having previously worked for LabLogic in a sales role as well as other companies in the medical science industry, Andrew has a wealth of experience in meeting the demands of being a supplier to the healthcare sector.
Lorna James: Senior Sales Administrator
Lorna joined Southern Scientific in 1991 and moved across to Knight Imaging in 2000. Her outstanding administration and customer service skills, and in-depth product knowledge have been, and will continue to be, a valuable asset to the company.
