Chronos Imaging was formed in February of 2018 to acquire the former DUNLEE factory in Aurora, Illinois, with a contract to continue manufacturing DUNLEE-branded replacement CT tubes.
Rob Piconi, executive chairman, led the group to form Chronos Imaging. Rob is the former president and CEO of ReMedPar. He was also the founder of Mesa, known today as Althea, the largest multi-vendor service group in Europe.
Chronos Imaging President Pat Fitzgerald was the president and general manager of DUNLEE for 15 years. Immediately prior to joining the team at Chronos Imaging, Fitzgerald was the executive vice president and general manager of the Richardson Healthcare business, where he helped establish CT tube development and manufacturing as a Greenfield activity.
TechNation learned more about Chronos Imaging in a question-and-answer session.
Q: What is the main focus of Chronos Imaging?
A: We develop and manufacture CT replacement tubes that make it economically feasible for third parties to service OEM CT scanners. Without an alternative tube, this would not be practical.
Most of our business today is manufacturing DUNLEE-branded replacement tubes for GE CT scanners sold via the DUNLEE channel. We also own and manufacture a line of CT replacement tubes that we market under our own Chronos brand.
Q: How does Chronos Imaging stand out in the medical equipment field?
A: DUNLEE helped create the third-party CT service market with 100% form-fit-function replacement tubes that meet or exceed all OEM specifications. Chronos Imaging continues this tradition today. Our quality is legendary with each tube we manufacture going through final testing and calibration on an OEM CT scanner to all but eliminate DOA failures.
Q: Do you have any specific goals that you want Chronos Imaging to achieve in the near future?
A: Chronos Imaging will continue to work closely with the DUNLEE team, including developing new products like a replacement for the GE Performix 40 Plus CT tube that is expected to be released later in 2020. At the same time, we intend to continue to enhance our contract manufacturing and developing new product capabilities, which may include an introduction of additional Chronos-branded products in the coming years.
