TBS Group was founded in research environment in the late 1980s as an advanced clinical engineering service provider with a high level of specialization.
In line with integrated technology development (in both IT and telematics), the company's growth was marked by developments in clinical engineering itself. In fact, Clinical Engineering was no longer merely restricted to the secure and efficient management of biomedical equipment, but had expanded to comprise the integrated management of all technologies implemented in hospitals and social and healthcare facilities.
TBS Group works to set up technical workshops within hospitals and social and healthcare facilities (today there are 350 workshops, subdivided into 46 Regional Operating Centres), which employ a permanent staff of biomedical and IT engineers and highly specialized technicians who undergo continuous training (over 1,600 of total 2,300 members of staff). Biotechnology specialists and information technology experts who work in 26 of TBS Group's competence centres assist and coordinate the operations of the various workshops within the local area.
This widespread international network of technicians and skills draws from an interconnected IT platform and an impressive database that enables a continuous exchange of data, information and knowledge.
TBS Group also deploys internal R&D facilities operating in collaboration with leading universities and international research centres.
The Group has a marked propensity for internationalization and currently operates with numerous subsidiaries in 16 countries - Austria, Belgium, Chile, China, France, Gabon, Germany, the UK, India, Italy, the Netherlands, Peru, Portugal, the United Arab Emirates, Serbia and Spain.
The headquarters are located at AREA Science Park (Trieste, Italy), of which it has been a tenant since 1994.
