Our history

Kenex (Electro-Medical) Limited was established in England in 1970, designing and manufacturing low volume quality radiation and imaging accessories. A family owned business from the beginning, Kenex steadily built a reputation within the UK as an equipment manufacturer that sought to provide solutions specifically for the healthcare industry.

As a trusted provider, Kenex steadily grew its product range and market share. The company's reputation within the UK meant that expansion into overseas markets was a natural progression. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Kenex expanded. We moved into new premises, employed more people and established our leading position by continually developing our core range, adding high quality products. Additional mobile and overhead radiation shields were complemented by the introduction of Lytatype™ protective clothing.

Kenex built an unrivalled reputation as an innovator in design with a clear understanding of customers' needs. Manufacturing and distributing products to the world's OEMs, the Kenex trademark became synonymous with quality, reliability and style. In addition, designing and manufacturing a number of tailor-made products, produced around the specifications, themes and styles set out by customers became a key strategic development.

Today, we continue to evolve and improve our product range and service. With an increased market share, additional team members and a move to a larger, purpose-built facility, the company continues to adapt. Owned by the same family for nearly 50 years, Kenex looks forward to building on the success of the past, whilst maintaining the same level of professionalism and attention to detail which has set it apart from the competition for so long.
