Chinook Medical Gear is a certified veteran-owned and Native American 8(a)-owned small business that provides custom medical solutions for the harshest environments. They exist to deliver custom medical solutions for pre-hospital care, enabling medical providers to save lives and aid the injured.
When the Chinook Medical Gear founder decided to retire and sell in 2016, three of the executive employees dedicated to the company's mission and spirit longed to keep the business local. Although Chinook was already an existing company, the lack of tangible assets or a sizable downpayment made this a difficult buyout to finance. FSWB was able to source several different financing options to turn a dream into a reality, save over eight employee jobs, and retain an existing Durango business.
