FiberOptic Bulbs (FOBI) was incorporated in Texas in 1996 specializing in sales of medical lamps and fiber optic cables.  With a focus on customer service growth was inevitable.  The original biomedical focus quickly expanded to include clinical departments of the hospital, such as respiratory, imaging, surgery and ER. And, as the responsibility of Biomed Departments increased, FOBI introduced services that provide customers a way to maximize their technician’s value and time.  The explosion in both territorial growth and the diversity of our offering transformed FiberOptic Bulbs. In that light we re-invented ourselves and what emerged was FOBI Medical. With our new moniker, we are able to more accurately define ourselves and our mission in the healthcare industry. FOBI is synonymous with quality, integrity, and customer service.

In the words of company President Keith Przybyla “We don’t view ourselves as a ‘vendor’ because we don’t just want to sell you something – we want to be a part of your organization … a partner.” FOBI’s dedication to quality and continuous improvement has never been more important.
