The Managing Director for Midwex Group Mr. Khalil Amiroune said the Midwex Group felt patients needs this kind of machine to provide them with best quality service hence the introduction of this innovative concept of placing the machine at the facility for free against arrangement of consumption of a certain quantity of consumables. There are two ways of acquiring the machine either through placement, based on the facility being able to purchase certain quantity of consumables or through outright purchase.

He said, Midwex Group has the requisite engineers to maintain the facility and the company will also train more local engineers under the transfer of technology to ensure availability of local engineers to service the machines in the country.
