Willow Grove, PA – April 27, 2018 - Bac Si Controls, a Pennsylvania-based products distributor with specific expertise in and a focus on medical products and services for Infectious Disease Control, today announced that it has been verified by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the Center for Verification and Evaluation (CVE) as a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB). This achievement culminates a more than decade-long effort to reach this goal and a lifetime of service to the military and medical field for the company’s Founder and CEO, Jim Hunter.
After active combat service as a medical corpsman in Vietnam, 46 years of dedication to the medical field since that time and in the process becoming an expert in Infectious Disease Control, Bac Si Controls was born. The creation of the company is an extension of a commitment to applying knowledge and experience to save lives by mitigating, isolating and neutralizing the spread of infectious diseases. Achieving the designation of SDVOSB now gives Bac Si Controls the ability to expand its reach and the positive impact it can have.
According to NPR Science Desk Reporter, Michaeleen Doucleff, “Over the past century, the number of new infectious diseases cropping up each year has nearly quadrupled. The number of outbreaks per year has more than tripled. In the U.S., we have seen more than a dozen new human diseases appear over the past 25 years. For instance, a killer tick-borne virus showed up in Kansas in 2014. A new type of leprosy dismembered a man in Arizona in 2002. And a new hemorrhagic fever jumped from rodents into people, killing three women in California in 1999 — to name just a few.”
Infectious disease control is a very serious global issue and Bac Si Controls is dedicated to helping government agencies as well as public and private organizations gain access to the products and services they need to combat the spread of these diseases.
“I am very pleased to have brought my life’s experience in the military and medical field together in to this business and now to receive this designation is quite an honor,” stated Jim Hunter, Founder and CEO, Bac Si Controls. “Beyond being a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business, Bac Si Controls is also a 100% family-owned business, with my nephew, Hunter Newby, being my business partner in the venture. For this, I am very proud and I look forward to continuing my service in the field.”
