Our History

Barrington Ventures, Ltd., dba BV Medical was founded in 1989 by Joe Kainz as a professional medical device distributor. Joe sourced medical instruments and diagnostic devices manufactured by small and medium-sized companies around the world. In the year 2000, Howie Russell joined the company, and together, they expanded the product line to include respiratory devices. They increased the customer base and built a reputation for first-class customer service, the hallmark of BV Medical’s value proposition to this day. In 2020, new CEO John Kainz accelerated the company’s transformation, building on the traditional positive customer experience by reforming the E-commerce platform: bvmedical.com. The BV Medical team remains dedicated to personal customer service where you can reach a person with answers to your questions, not a faceless corporation.
