thebeacon croppedeyeMobil continues to grow and move forward quickly in 2023.  This year will be the first full year in our new production facility at the  Beacon Resource Center in South Bend, IN.   The space has allowed us to expand our mission and to have an entire community around us rooting us onward!  This year we have taken advantage of the in house machine shop to help produce parts!  Being at the Beacon Resource Center means that every purchase of a microscope  or surgeon's stool helps provide transformation to the west side of South Bend by supporting a space for local organizations committed to strengthening the community.  The Beacon hosts a church, adult education, a homeschool co-op, police after school boxing league, pickleball club and USA table tennis club, a machine shop and more.

We are grateful for the tremendous support of each of our customers.  This has allowed us to grow our vision for equipping surgeons and eyecare providers across the globe to serve their patients and the medically underserved.  In the last year, we have shipped microscopes to some of the following places:  Togo, Angola, Sudan, Guatemala, Gabon, Rwanda, Honduras, Ecuador, Venazuela, Ghana, Spain, Kenya, Mongolia, Nigeria, Eswatini and to many other places that our  mobile scope is taken that we are not aware of.
