The Story Behind the Name
When David Currier founded Bound Tree Medical, he was serving as a Henniker Selectman. A Selectman is a member of the executive arm of the government of New England towns in the United States. Since the early 1700s, Selectmen have been required to perambulate - to make an official inspection by foot - of the Henniker town boundaries at least every five years.
At the town's northeast boundary point was a large white oak tree - a bound tree. It had served as a guidepost for the Selectmen since 1752 when what was originally called "Town Number Six" was first surveyed. The historical significance of the tree prompted David to name his new business "Bound Tree Corporation."
Bound Tree Medical originated 40 years ago, when David Currier, an entrepreneur, politician, and former Emergency Medical Technician, started a small emergency medical supply company in Henniker, New Hampshire.
