C.R. Bard’s story began with one product in turn-of-the-century New York City. We now encompass the world, including the Salt Lake City, Ut, division: Bard Access Systems. In 1990, our division began as the Specialty Access Group of our sister division, Davol, Inc, in Rhode Island. After the acquisition of a small company in Salt Lake City, the group moved west, made this beautiful mountain valley home, and grew into the successful division that we’re proud to be a part of.


Our division focuses on developing, manufacturing, and distributing high-quality medical devices used by clinicians throughout the worldwide healthcare industry to access a patient’s vasculature. Our devices assist in the delivery of chemotherapy, blood products, antibiotics, and nutrition.
