The opening of the new oxygen facility and service center is part of a strategic alliance with Shanghai Taiyo Nippon Sanso Shenwei Medical Gas and Beijing Orient Medical Gas.

The service center in Beijing’s Haidian District provides individual customers an opportunity to experience Dehaier’s homecare products, including sleep and respiratory products such as oxygen concentrators, CPAP machines, and sleep diagnostic equipment.

Dehaier CEO Ping Chen said after securing insurance coverage for oxygen therapy products in Shanghai, Taiyo-Shanghai has grown its local market share to over 90%.

"Through our new oxygen service offering, we are not only introducing a standardized product and service to the market, but we have also joined the lobbying effort aimed at securing insurance coverage for home oxygen therapy services in Beijing," Chen said.

"We are confident in our ability to duplicate our model in other cities in China, to address this market growth and build shareholder value."
