ABOUT

MORE THAN SURVIVAL

THE HISTORY OF SAM MEDICAL

At the heart of every great company, you’ll find an idea that spawned a product, a product that fostered a culture, and a culture that created a brand – a brand that stands uniquely alone in a crowded marketplace. SAM Medical is no exception.

What began as a spark of innovation when founder Dr. Sam Scheinberg found a medical breakthrough in a simple gum wrapper is now a globally recognized emergency medical solutions brand. From militaries to law enforcement agents, EMS and first responders to fire and rescue squads, to hospital staff all over the world, if you're in the hurt business, you know and trust SAM Medical.

To serve the diverse customers and fuel our founder’s passion for innovation, SAM has built a world-class organization. Based just outside of Portland, OR, a bioscience and technology hub, our Wilsonville facilities provide access to best-in-class talent and resources. 

We’ve aligned and integrated our corporate offices, research and development lab, manufacturing facilities and warehouses to increase the pace of innovation and put our solutions in the hands of our customers as quickly as possible.

In just 30 years, we’ve managed to place our name alongside the most respected, award-winning medical giants. Yet, we’ve always maintained the spirit of innovation celebrated in vertically-integrated, agile startup organizations.

Meet the leaders and contributors of SAM Medical – the team trusted to develop world-class emergency medical solutions, and get them in the hands of guardians, comforters and miracle workers across the globe.
