About our Founder Berna Demiryol
Berna is a proud immigrant who arrived in Canada with an entrepreneurial spirit. She kept that hidden for 20 long years before she launched her own business in the medical field.
Coming from the financial industry executive roles, Berna has a strong sense of risk management in technology and business operations. Going through the pandemic, she experienced the supply chain challenges first hand and understood the significance of developing alternate routes and a strong bench of trusted suppliers. She also believes in sustainable sourcing by just-in-time manufacturing philosophy and limiting waste.
She lives in Lorne Park, Mississauga with her husband and two teenage children.
She spends her leisure time with her kids, reading and writing for fun.
All of these critical elements took a meaningful shape under Proteq Medical which addresses the following key values we take to heart:
Customer Connection: We believe in connecting with our customers at a deeper level instead of offering service through an automated ordering system. We listen and understand the needs and recommend solutions that fits the purpose.

Risk Management: Our offerings include untapped supply chain solutions and diversification that helps you manage risks and run uninterrupted operations safely.
