CIVCO Radiotherapy has a solid history of innovation and growth. In 1982, Paul Korver founded Med-Tec, Inc. in Dallas, Texas, and opened a facility the next year to perform general machining. He was the sole employee of the company, doing all of the designing and machining himself, to make various products for several nuclear physicists. Then, in 1984, Paul started developing products for radiation therapy, and continued to be the only employee until 1985. In 1989, Med-Tec opened a facility in Orange City, Iowa with three employees. A few years later, the company grew to 13 employees and in 1996, Paul and Anita Korver retired, selling the business to Clayton and Deb Korver. Successes continued, and the team grew rapidly over the next 8 years, reaching 95 employees.
In December of 2005, MEDTEC, Inc. was purchased by Roper Technologies to expand their medical segment to include radiation oncology products that enhance cancer treatment outcomes through improved patient positioning and products designed to target tumor elimination. Our legal name continues to be MEDTEC, Inc., (incorporated in Iowa) and we are doing business as CIVCO Radiotherapy.
In May 2006, the company's radiation oncology product line was expanded through the acquisition of SINMED, BV located in The Netherlands to add additional global market presence.
Today, CIVCO Radiotherapy has offices located in Coralville, Iowa; Orange City, Iowa; Singapore and England, with employees located across the U.S., Europe and Asia.
