Soma Tech Intl, a leading supplier of new and refurbished capital medical equipment has been named one of the fastest-growing private companies in the nation by Inc. MAGAZINE and one of 42 throughout the state of Connecticut. Released in August 2021, its annual Inc. 5000 list, where Soma ranks at 163.
HISTORY OF SOMA
In 1992, Soma was founded by two young entrepreneurs that identified the markets need for high quality medical equipment at affordable prices and supplied by a local company. The company was first located in a small office in Rocky Hill, CT while serving facilities in the central Connecticut area and employing only a handful of dedicated employees. Within 5 years, Soma Tech Intl had expanded its market reach around the New England area and developed enough clientele relationships and brand awareness that lead the company into moving to a larger facility in Cheshire, CT in 1996.
Soma was then able to accommodate a larger inventory and a larger team. This move allowed Soma Tech to continue to expand its product line and by the late 90s Soma had become a worldwide supplier of new and refurbished capital medical equipment setting the standards for the industry. In furtherance of accommodating its resounding success, increasing demand and a growing team, Soma Tech Intl relocated its headquarter to a brand new facility in Bloomfield, CT in 2008, where it houses the largest inventory of medical equipment in the industry.
