Vacumetrics (VacuMed) History
Vacumetrics Inc. was founded in 1968 by John Hoppe in Waltham, Massachusetts. The company's goal was to develop a mass spectrometer for pulmonary gas analysis and mass spectrometer accessories in general.
The company introduced its first commercial mass spectrometer in 1970. In 1972, Statham Instruments of Oxnard, California acquired Vacumetrics and moved the company and its key employees to Oxnard, California. Two years later, Gould Inc., in turn, acquired Statham Instruments and sold the mass spectrometer product line.
In 1974, John Hoppe started a new company in Ventura, California, again named Vacumetrics Inc.
VacuMed is a division of Vacumetrics, Inc., a dba, specializing in medical instrumentation and supplies. John Hoppe is the sole owner. There are no other stockholders, nor do any individuals possess any rights, options or other ownership rights in the company. Vacumetrics Inc. is organized as a C-corporation in the state of California.

The company manufacturers approximately 50% of the products it sells and acts as a distributor for the balance. VacuMed distributes products worldwide.
VacuMed is a strong international brand with a huge world-wide base of repeat customers that have come to rely on our reasonable prices, committed customer service and reliable quality. We have attained this reputation with experienced, long-time employees, many of whom have been with VacuMed for 10, 20, even 35 years.

Essentially debt-free, VacuMed expects to see a substantial increase in sales and profits in the current fiscal year with the introduction of new products, strong sales prospects and experienced employees. See all products at
