| First Source was incorporated in 1999. First Source is an innovator and designer of wireless and tethered DR systems for use with X-ray Mobiles, Portables and general radiographic equipment. We strive to produce Wireless and tethered DR Technology that can be integrated into a system on site in less than an hour. First Source is dedicated to providing an independent alternative to manufacturers for parts, service training and technical support. First Source specializes in the sales, service and refurbishment of Carestream/Kodak, Agfa and Fuji Laser Imagers and CR Equipment. There are three principle partners of First Source who work out of three separate offices and are responsible for the employees who work from these offices.
Jim Goldner, President
Jim started in the Imaging industry with his own independent
service business. By the time the business grew to seven
engineers the opportunity came to merge his company with
a large independent dealer and then eventually to become
a part of a national distributor. With his own business
and these dealers, alternative service was always the focus
and it laid the foundation for First Source Inc.
Through First Source Inc, Jim has taken the ideas and abilities
of his associates and put together a business plan that
is proving to be very popular. The core of the plan is to
offer to our customers a very professional “third
party” training, service, support and parts alternative.
Bob Winters, CTT Director of Training and Project Planning
Bob worked for Eastman Kodak for 21 years as a Field Engineer,
Instructor and Senior Project Manager for PACS. As a Certified
Technical Trainer with extensive field experience, Bob adds
a depth to his training by highlighting the nonessential
but focusing on what the engineers need to know to successfully
service the equipment we support.
Bob left Kodak to pursue opportunities with Diagnostic
Imaging. He developed, directed and taught DI’s level
I and level II laser courses. When those courses ended he
joined their digital team.
First Source Inc. offered Bob an opportunity to resume
his training career and we put together a program to train
on Kodak’s wet lasers. We then reverse engineered
the dry lasers and he is currently training full time on
the Kodak, Agfa, Konica and Fuji Laser Imagers & CR
Equipment, along with its connectivity and integration into
Ron Viola, Director of Research & Development of DR Solutions
Ron worked for Kodak for sixteen years. He was involved in manufacturing, design and also technical support. Ron left Kodak to join S&W X-Ray as their product specialist for multiloaders when Kodak released them to the dealers. Diagnostic Imaging purchased S&W and Ron assumed the role of product specialist for the Northeast.
First Source Inc. offered Ron an opportunity to pursue his desire to rebuild multiloaders, Laser Imagers and CR Equipment. Ron is also responsible for Second Sourcing many of the parts that we offer. Ron is in charge of research and development of integration kits to upgrade various pieces of X-ray equipment to Digital Radiography. His innovative approach for development and fine tuning of these products has gained wide acceptance of these DR products in the market place.
