About O2 Concpets
After discovering the challenges facing patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), Dikran Tourian wanted to provide a solution better than the bulky oxygen products on the market. In 2008 he founded O2 Concepts with the vision to design and build an innovative and ‘best in class’ dual mode portable oxygen concentrator. His goal was to create a product that could go from the bedroom to the golf course, even if that golf course was across the Atlantic Ocean. The device would have to be able to deliver the necessary purity and flow of oxygen that COPD patients require no matter what the circumstances.
Tourian recruited the help of Gyre 9 president Ed Gilchrest and industry sales veteran Jeff Kerven to make this vision a reality. They began a two year journey that lead to the acquisition of the intellectual property of Oxlife, LLC, which they determined was the most efficient and capable oxygen concentrator design in existence.
Establishing a cost competitive product while implementing higher benchmarks for quality required building a state-of-the-art factory facility specifically designed to manufacture the Oxlife Independence. On June 18, 2010, O2 Concepts broke ground for a manufacturing and test facility in Newtown, CT, for their manufacturing and test facility. A year later the first OxLife Independence Concentrators came off of the assembly line on August 1, 2011.
Now that the product was designed, the company needed an organization to spread the word to the patients who needed it, so Tourian and Kerven set out to assemble the industry’s finest sales organization. O2 Concepts was approached by the oxygen industry’s most experienced respiratory sales representatives who had heard abou the Oxlife and wanted to be a part of the effort. Cumulatively, the sales leadership team possesses 60+ years of oxygen sales experience, and the 36 member sales team is comprised of the most talented resources in North America.
On September 15, 2011, O2 Concepts shipped its first orders of the OxLife Independence, less than three years after Tourian’s initial vision. O2 Concepts Oxlife Independence is available for sale through authorized medical equipment dealers across the U.S.
O2 Concepts is dedicated to customer quality and the success of oxygen patients worldwide, and this dedication shows in the quality of their products and attention to customer service.
