Opening day was May 5th, 1998 – It’s hard to believe that we’ve been around that long! You can read some Amjo Corp History below and more at www.amjo.net
In a couple of years we’ll celebrate our twentieth anniversary.
We’re now in several businesses. Amjo Corp started with facial sun lamps, it was the sunlamps and my brain that decided to call us ‘the company with the sunny disposition’ and the name sort of stuck. Later that year we added lights for seasonal affective disorder or winter depression and as our business developed we added specialized lights for UVA, UVB and UVB Narrow Band UVB Home Phototherapy, these types of lights are used primarily for the treatment of skin diseases such as Psoriasis, Vitiligo, and Eczema.
It wasn’t until 2000 that Amjo Corp joined forces with Curatronic, an Israeli firm specializing in this very unique field.
Amjo and The Curatron
It was April of 2000 when Chris Cane (one of Amjo Corp’s founders) received an email from a guy in Israel asking if Amjo might be interested in selling Pulsed Electromagnetic Therapy Equipment. The “guy” in Israel turned out to be the founder of Curatronic and although we did not know it then, we did have a lot in common. The website for the Curatron 2000 original system is www.curatron.com.
To continue: Chris, that’s me the webmaster and founder did not have a clue what Pulsed Electromagnetic Therapy Equipment was and being a skeptical technocrat I could not understand what this was. The email was from Ben Philipson who had come across our Home Photo Therapy website and based on what he’d seen, he believed we would be interested. I have to admit that I played “hard to get” not because I was a skilled negotiator but because I was stalling for time trying to figure out what this technology was and how beneficial it could be.
Eventually, Ben Philipson, the creator of the Curatron 2000 Family called me and we formed an almost instantaneous bond and trust that has resulted in a true friendship and a long term business relationship for PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Therapy Equipment) but eventually for a stroke rehab, stroke therapy product line created by Curatronic called the Biomove. Amjo Corp has a separate website in support of the Biomove called www.BiomoveUSA.com.
Life is better with Magnetism
It did not take me long to begin to see the advantages of PEMF technology over that of the permanent magnet. A wealth of articles on Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy (PEMF) technology is available. Excerpts from some abstracts, articles, and references on PEMF can be found on this website as well as at my blog (www.pemfsite.com) . This information has been collected to indicate the benefits of the use of pulsed electromagnetic field therapy and many are double blind, placebo controlled studies.
We are fortunate.
We’ve been very fortunate. Amjo was started without a business plan or even a hope, well maybe a hope!. As it turns out, our business plan went something like this. Walk in one direction and if your toe hurts, stop and turn. If you do this often enough you do get through the maze alive or at least we did. Today we have about ten websites running. The main one at www.AMJO.net. Our focus has remained health oriented products to help people in many ways.
Thanks for reading!
If you have an idea where you think we can do business together.

Oh yes! I forgot to mention that when I was young, I was a racecar driver!
