Ken Anderson was a native of Chicago, IL, where he attended Northwestern University. An entrepreneur in the manufacturing and selling of medical devices, Ken owned a Respiratory Therapy business in Kansas City prior to relocating to Springfield, Missouri. It was there he met his wife Paulette and started Tech-Medical Services in 1989 and TMS Sterilization in 2012. Tech-Medical is the company it is today because of the relationships Ken built with the distributors, manufacturers, and colleagues he worked with.
