Let there be light…

FiberOptic Bulbs Incorporated in Texas in 1996. The company specialized in medical lamps and fiber optic cables in the Houston, Texas area. The surgical market was our core business and we made many lasting relationships in this specialty field. As time went on we were asked by our customers for more items and our growth was inevitable. We added medical batteries, hospital grade power cords, and many accessories utilized by Bio-medical Engineering Technicians.

Cast a wide net…

Texas is a big state and we were ready to expand. FiberOptic Bulbs moved into the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex. Our representation in the area worked diligently to build strong partnerships with some very well respected facilities. This inspired us to move south and west. We found ourselves in the central Texas valley. Places like Waco, Austin, and San Antonio became very familiar. With little or no “on the ground” competition, FiberOptic Bulbs did very well and currently sales and services the majority of the hospital systems in Texas.

Who are we now?

This explosion in both territorial growth and the diversity of our product lines changed FiberOptic Bulbs. In that light we re-invented ourselves. What emerged was FOBI. With our new moniker, we were able to more accurately define ourselves and our mission in the healthcare industry. FOBI is synonymous with quality, integrity, and customer service.

More than just Biomed…

Our growth resulted with our expansion into other departments of the hospital, such as respiratory, surgery and ER. Facilities used us for specialty lamps and medical gas. Imaging techs now had a local source for their mobile x-ray batteries. Respiratory found we had oxygen cells and analyzers. Labor and Delivery brought us broken transducers by the bucket-load. Surgery needed fiber cables and lamps, our original core business was alive and well.

Service…Service…Service…

As the markets have evolved and competition has become more aggressive, we have evolved as well. We are not just a parts supplier, but a service provider as well. We have focused our efforts on services which provide our customers with a way to maximize their technician’s value and meet their customers’ needs. We repair suction regulators, air/oxygen blenders, fetal transducers, telemetry modules, and many others.

Building for the future…

In 2011, FOBI began manufacturing its own line of OER (Original Equipment Replacement) parts. It has been a learning experience and we have met the new challenges head on and are constantly expanding our OER product offering.

FOBI has worked hard to develop partnerships with our customers. Our philosophy has been to provide our partners with outstanding service, thus allowing FOBI to be more than a vendor, but a trusted and valued resource.
