MilSpec Communications, Inc. (MCI), the parent Company of MilSpec Medical (MM), was formed and incorporated in February 1996 by Howard L. Bayne III. MCI has been doing business primarily in the communications field for over 20 years including two retail stores in Beaufort, SC offering cell phones, phones-in the-box, cell phone service, replenishment, phone cards, LEC (local exchange carrier) service, long distance service, Internet, Voice-over-IP, and money movement services. In 2008, the Bayne’s sold the newly consolidated retail store to its employees, but retained the Company name and its machine replenishment business, which it has operated continuously since inception. Corporate Headquarters has effectively always been at 195 Distant Island Drive, Beaufort, SC. The prepaid replenishment business, the final piece of the communications side of MCI, was just recently sold in early August 2017.
In January of 2015, MilSpec Communications, Inc. DBA MilSpec Medical was formally created, taking our Company into a new field as a subsidiary of Sage Services Group, LLC selling cables, leads, cuffs and sensors for patient monitoring devices. We became an officially sanctioned service-disabled, 100% veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB) through the CVE (Center for Verification and Evaluation) of the Veterans Administration in November 2014, and we have maintained that certification ever since.
In September of 2014, I began inventive work for creating a “sterile medical device case” (patent application title and what our patent application describes) for the McGrath video laryngoscope. The MACMILLER is a one of a kind mobile storage box. I saw the medical community desperately needing a device to properly store and securely protect the McGrath video laryngoscope from breakage, yet allow the McGrath to be immediately available to clinicians. Our MACMILLER box is patent-pending, and both the names MACMILLER and MILSPEC MEDICAL have been trademarked through the USPTO. As of this writing, manufacturing has occurred and is proceeding on “Solution 1,” which is the OR (operating room) solution, while “Solution 2,” the mobile/battlefield solution is still under development and testing. Both solutions are covered under our patent application.
In July 2017, MM received an official federal government purchase order and delivered and fulfilled its first major order of 75 MACMILLERS (one for each McGrath video laryngoscope) to the Dorn VA Medical Center in Columbia, SC. Since that time, the MM team has been working tirelessly with an expert consultant to apply for and land its first FSS government contract. We enthusiastically anticipate having that MACMILLER contract with the government in place by December 31, 2017.
