AN industry-leading distributor of medical equipment and devices in Malaysia, Medi-Life (M) Sdn Bhd is spearheaded by visionary entrepreneur and inspirational leader Christine Lee Ling Ling.
Thanks to Lee’s guidance, Medi-Life has become a natural go-to name for high quality, state-of-the-art products, specialising in medical equipment for operating theatres and surgical kits.
The company is currently the exclusive distributor and rental solutions provider for some of the world’s top brands in medical apparatuses and technologies.
Built on a strong foundation of corporate cultures, Medi-Life remains fully committed to maintaining the highest ethical standards as it grows, embracing diversity while upholding three simple yet fundamental business philosophies: humanity, compassion and sincerity.
Aiming to satisfy every customer need with the best support, the company prioritises its customers by adopting their viewpoint to ensure its service takes a humanistic approach. By empathising with the challenges customers face, it seeks to be part of remedial solutions in the ultimate goal of helping patients in their recovery.
In line with its vision to become the leading distributor of advanced medical products and services, Medi-Life and the team behind it have tackled every hardship with positivity and staunch determination to distinguish itself from competitors.
It does so by advocating the highest standards of value-added services and consistency, in order to emphasise its sincerity in doing business and its appreciation towards being trusted as a long-term business partner.
Medi-Life commits to shared success, working together to succeed every mission and taking accountability for the sustainable success for its employees, customers, shareholders, suppliers and communities, in a collective effort to be 100% dedicated to the healthcare industry.
At the helm of the company is Lee, who started her career as a product specialist after returning from her studies in Australia. With her family background and upbringing, it was given that she would choose the opportunity that would bring her a greater breadth and depth of knowledge and experience, which is why she favoured a local company over a multinational fast moving consumer goods company.
Leveraging her eight solid years of experience in the surgical supplies industry, she established Medi-Life with three former colleagues.
Throughout it all, she overcame the challenge of having to juggle between her young family and a flourishing business, leading the company’s growth from only four employees to a team of over 70 people, with four branches in Shah Alam, Penang, Sabah and Sarawak.
Currently, the company has exclusive distributorship for 27 agency lines in the country and is eyeing the further expansion of its distribution network across the region.
Along the way, Lee was awarded the Asia Pacific Entrepreneur Awards Outstanding Entrepreneur in the Medical Supplies Industry in 2018, while Medi-Life clinched Brand Laureate’s SME Best Brands Award 2017/18 in Healthcare Solutions under her leadership.
Most recently, Lee won the Par Excellence Achievement award for the Female Entrepreneur of the Year category (above RM25mil turnover) in SOBA 2020.
Further down the road, Medi-Life has plans to establish a stronger foothold in turnkey projects for both government and private hospitals. The company is also looking to penetrate into new segments beyond the surgical market, namely the peri-operative segment, in 2021.
