Defibtech International Markets Continue to Grow

Guilford, CT
September 16, 2011

Defibtech announced today that it has expanded into four more international markets, those of Denmark, Portugal, Paraguay and the Cayman Islands.

Defibtech is a leading designer and manufacturer of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs). Defibtech products are sold in more than 35 countries and customers are able to order language specific AEDs, which provide step-by-step instructions in the primary language of each country.

“We are excited to continuously expand into more and more countries throughout the world,” said Gianfranco Buchbinder, Vice President of International Sales and Marketing. “Customers world-wide recognize the value of Defibtech products, for their ease of use, reliability and affordability.” 

Defibtech’s strong performance in pursuing export markets was recognized by the U.S. Department of Commerce, which awarded Defibtech with an Export Achievement Certificate in July 2010. Company President Gintaras Vaisnys stated that Defibtech has aggressively pursued markets abroad since the company was established in 1999. International sales account for almost half of Defibtech sales.

AEDs revive victims of sudden cardiac arrest caused by ventricular fibrillation. Studies show that if victims are defibrillated within a minute or two after arrest, more than 70 percent survive. If defibrillation is delayed for more than 10 minutes, only 5 percent live, making immediate access to AEDs vital.
