Global Company History

Enhancing Lives Together

Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare is a leading global manufacturer and distributor of durable medical equipment, with a rich history of innovation and a passion for improving lives. Our story began in 1888 with the founding of DeVilbiss Healthcare, a pioneer in respiratory care. Fast forward to 2000, Drive Medical entered the scene, rapidly establishing itself as a major force in durable medical equipment. In 2015, these two powerhouses joined forces, creating Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare – a company that combined DeVilbiss’ legacy of respiratory excellence with Drive Medical’s dynamic growth and vast product portfolio.

Today, Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare offers a comprehensive range of medical equipment solutions, encompassing mobility products, respiratory and sleep therapy devices, bathroom safety solutions, and more. Our commitment to quality and innovation is unwavering, as reflected in our investment in research and development to bring cutting-edge products to market.
