BCF Technology, pioneers in veterinary ultrasound for more than 30 years, has joined forces with another successful animal reproduction and imaging company, ECM (Echo Control Medical), forming a new imaging division, IMV imaging, under the IMV Technologies group.
IMV Technologies has been a leader at the forefront of innovations in animal artificial insemination and embryo transfer for more than 50 years, with operations in more than 130 countries and established subsidiaries in the United States, India, China, Italy and the Netherlands.
As of May 9, BCF Technology and ECM will officially come together and form the imaging division under the IMV Technologies Group, which will be known as IMV imaging. From May 9, the names of BCF Technology and ECM, replaced with IMV imaging.
Imaging Director Alan Picken states, “We can reassure you that the people, as well as the values behind the BCF brand, will remain after the transition to IMV imaging. This merger provides us all with huge opportunities to grow ourselves and seek wider training and organizational opportunities in the wider IMV Technologies group. The current directors and senior management team will continue to lead the company as IMV imaging and they all remain 100% committed to the values of partnership, learning and innovation, which helped build BCF to this point.”
The merge under IMV Technologies will allow BCF Technology to deliver a wider portfolio of products to customers worldwide, and ultimately, deliver improved animal care.
Carl Bollum, general manager, explains, “As IMV imaging we will be able to reach new heights, providing you an expanded range of equipment with the same knowledgeable and trusted team you’ve always worked with.”
