McNeils' Surgical is 100% South Australian owned and operated. Malcolm McNeil commenced business in a time when the allies were steadily bringing to an end a world war that touched every Australian. He set up shop in the east end of Rundle Street on the northern side, close to the School of Medicine where many students came to buy books and diagnostic instruments, Malcolm's knowledge of books and instruments was encyclopaedic. The Royal Adelaide Hospital which was close by purchased many surgical instruments in those times. Country hospitals were visited regularly by Malcolm and business flourished.
Michael Woods and Tony Palmer joined the Company in the early seventies; the Company had again passed hands and was now owned by G.Chem. Co-operative, a pharmacy wholesaler with little knowledge of the medical industry. Michael and Tony saw a great opportunity for the future and so in 1975 purchased the business from G. Chem Co-operative.
Today McNeils are celebrating a quarter of a century of growth and our customers now encompass Medical practices, Specialists, Public and Private hospitals and Nursing Homes as well as the general public, who can purchase direct many health care products.
