We get it.
Bamford are Kiwi medical suppliers, who get the needs of New Zealand hospitals and practitioners, and get the products they really need.
We get it, you need a supplier you can rely on. We get it, your surgeons and nurses need to perform. We get it, you need to save money as much as lives.
We deliver products to meet those needs.
We get supplies, packaged to your specifications. We get consumables, in your customised combinations. We get products, design-altered at your request.
Why? Because as a small, family-owned Kiwi supplier with long-running loyal relationships, we can get it for you.
BAMFORD. Three generations of understanding and delivering to hospitals’ needs.
Hospitals need supplies. We get it.
Supplying medical products is what we’ve always done. In 1952, William Bamford saw a need to supply gauze rolls to hospitals after the war. A believer in taking opportunities, he did it. Simply doing what needs to be done, is still at the heart of what we do.
People need relationships. We get it.
Taking a genuine interest in people is what we’ve always done. From 1978, Alaister Bamford took what his father started and grew it into what it is today. Kiwi common sense and courtesy in the way we partner with innovative brands, is why we’re still valued today.
Buyers need efficiency. We get it.
Saving our customers on cost and time is what we’ve always done. Continuing in 2011, Alex Bamford has streamlined New Zealand’s medical needs with the innovations of global suppliers. Knowing our customers and suppliers, asking their needs and then answering, is what will always set us apart.
We operate in the industry of medical consumables which can result in large amounts of waste for several reasons. As a company we understand this and operate in a manner that helps to reduce the impact on the environment as much as possible. This includes ensuring our products and packaging contains as much recyclable material as possible. Internally we use electric forklifts and reach trucks, have a recycling collection system for our waste and aim, through technology, to become a paperless office.
Being a family owned and run company, our people are our greatest asset. We are therefore passionate about providing an environment of fairness and equitable treatment to all our people. We strive to create and foster a supportive and inclusive culture in which everyone can achieve success and be rewarded. Examples of this include ensuring everyone is on or above the living wage, offering a peer nomination awards scheme and ensuring all staff are involved in a bonus scheme based on company performance.
We are proud to support charities by donating stock or funds including Wellington Medical Research Foundation – Research for Life and Friends of Fiji. We also make available to local organisations and charities short dated or expired stock which also forms part of our aim to limit waste.
We are committed to providing a safe environment for our employees, suppliers and visitors at our offices and warehouses. We continuously work to identify and mitigate any potential risks in the work place, monitor incidents and comply with the New Zealand Health and Safety at Work Act.
The above are not only standards which we place upon ourselves, but they are also a key factor when selecting our international and local suppliers and service providers.
