Our History

Our history derives from two Australian companies, BMDi Limited and TUTA Healthcare, coming together to form BMDi TUTA Healthcare Pty Ltd in 2008.

BMDi Limited was an Australian company formed in 2001 to specialise in the development of products designed to reduce needle-stick injuries with a focus on safety injection, collection and needle destruction devices.

In March 2008, BMDi acquired the business and select assets of TUTA Healthcare to form BMDi TUTA Healthcare Pty Limited, and in 2009, BMDi TUTA acquired the business of Clements Medical Equipment.

With the acquisition of TUTA and then Clements Medical Equipment, the decision was made to change the name of the listed company to MEDICAL AUSTRALIA (ASX: MLA) at the end of 2009, in line with the acquisitive focus of the business and the need to better reflect the growing portfolio of companies owned by the business.
