Conquest Imaging recently appointed Robert Broschart to senior director of technical operations. Broschart is currently overseeing the development of both a probe repair lab and portable depot repair lab at a newly acquired Fishers, Indiana facility.
Broschart has been in the medical equipment manufacturing industry for over 30 years. Most recently, Broschart served as director of operations with Acoustic Imaging Solutions until Conquest acquired AIS late last year. Prior to AIS, Broschart helped to launch Axess Ultrasound in 2005 and was responsible for revenue growth, probe research and development, technical operations, and oversaw the ISO 13485 certification and the Axess Ultrasound Technology Council until 2016. Prior to Axess Ultrasound, he served as executive vice president of sales and marketing for Sound Imaging, a multi-vendor ultrasound service.
“It’s our vision to continue to extend the life of ultrasound systems and lower the total cost of ownership for health care facilities,” explains Conquest Imaging President and Co-founder Mark Conrad said. “The addition of Bob Broschart to our management team will allow us to broaden our in-house repair offerings and elevate quality standards to meet the demands on the health care imaging industry. By building a state-of-art repair facility for both probes and portable systems, we will align ourselves to compete more successfully in quality and price.”
Conquest Imaging has been offering probe repair and portable system repair for several years and with the addition of the repair labs, will be able to reduce the cost and increase the level of consistent quality. Adhering to Conquest’s Quality Assurance 360 standards, the new facility will administer the quality management system that allows Conquest to offer its best-in-class warranty.
