SPIRIT LAKE, IOWA – Brownmed, the recently renamed manufacturer of medical devices, has combined two related businesses under the new Brownmed banner. As of this month, Kansas City-based companies Matrix Medical and Group G have been incorporated within Brownmed.

Matrix Medical, formed in 2005, focused on sales to domestic chain drug merchants and healthcare providers. Group G, formed in 2010, specialized in sales to U.S. office supply and ergonomic retailers.

The consolidation of our businesses will further our sales growth and make new realities possible,” said Brownmed President and CEO, Ivan Brown.
