Our History

Our History

Canadian Hospital Specialties was founded in 1967 by Henry Enns. Driven by industry experience and entrepreneurial passion, Henry teamed up with Dave Gilmore to found Enns and Gilmore. With a long career in the Canadian medical device industry spanning several roles, Henry's entrepreneurial passion ultimately led to the creation of his own company. 

Fast-forward 50 years, and that same passion and experience still exists at CHS today. Over the years, the company has continued to grow and has blossomed from a home-operated business to its current location in Oakville, Ontario. What began as a small company of two, has now grown to over 300 employees including a National sales and marketing team of 40 individuals focused on the key areas of our business.
