Congratulations to Bill and Lew Allyn, who were honored in the January 2008 issue of Repertoire Magazine, a publication for medical product distributors. The Allyns were the third generation of leadership at Welch Allyn, a company noted for quality products and community service.

The magazine publisher notes that Bill and Lew Allyn
were great stewards of their family business who consistently did things the right way for the right reasons…. They kept the company in upstate New York, even though it is not a business-friendly state in terms of taxation, energy costs and regulation. They were extremely generous with their time and resources, giving and continue to give, to a large number of local and national causes. And through all of it, they maintained a family culture that embraced everyone who worked for the company, including the distributors who sold the company’s products.
Bill, who was a long time member of the Board of Directors of Community General Hospital, continues to be interested in hospital affairs. Since his retirement, Community has been served by two excellent Welch Allyn executives: past Board member Louise McDonald, Executive Vice President & President, International, and current member Kevin Cahill, Executive Vice President & Chief Financial Officer.
The magazine’s honor is a well-deserved tribute to the Allyn brothers and to the quality-focused, community-minded company they served so well.
