New Zealand hospitals and practices.

Our story

We get it, you need a supplier you can rely on.

We get it, your team needs 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.


William Bamford

from 1952

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.

Alaister Bamford

from 1978

From 1978, Alaister Bamford took what his
father started and grew it into what it is today.
Kiwi can-do and common sense of genuinely
partnering with innovation brands, is still why
we're used today.

Alex Bamford

from 2011

Since 2011, Alex Bamford has streamlined
New Zealand's medical needs with the
innovations of global suppliers. Knowing our
customers' needs, asking and then
answering, is what will always set us apart.


Bam way

We make decisions that recognise
their impact beyond today.

Although as a consumable company much of what we supply is single-use due to risk of infection, cost and convenience, our approach is to consciously accept what we cannot change and proactively commit to what we can.

We have a growing range of biodegradable as well as environmentally-conscious reusable products. Our packaging is recyclable and made of 75% recycled material, and we give our devices and products lives beyond their shelf life by donating to charities and communities.

Alaister Bamford | Governing Director

Alex Bamford | General Manager

Alex is the head and heart of Bamford. Setting the tone for where the company and industry are headed, he wants to remove the gloss and bring back the human. The first to be modest, he's 'just' turning things around, and making little things more important than ever.

Andrew Graham | Supply Chain Manager

Andrew is the engine of the company. Having been here for 15 years, he knows how to keep our cogs (aka warehouse team) running, so that our supplies get from A to B with no one noticing. He calls himself a glorified box mover, we call him our legs as he's the one who keeps us running.

Warehouse Team

Darryl, Mat, Wayne, Dan and Deb are our unsung heroes, the doers that deserve noticing. The pickers and packers of next-day orders, they’re a ‘band of brothers’ (two literally are) who have all the important things in common; taste in takeaways and rugby league.
