Introduction and Work History

Hello! My name is Lionel Willard. The previous 30 years of my life have been spent as a Surgical/ Medical Technician in a large public hospital. In 1998, I embraced the opportunity to set up my own specialist repair/ importing business operating from Wainuiomata, near Wellington, using the expertise and experience I had gained over the years.

Now, besides our own high-quality M.R.S.-branded instruments, Medical Repair Service provides access to medical equipment and surgical instrument products from all around the globe, including from the following well-known manufacturers:

AMVEX Corporation, GIMA SPA, Alma Medical, Legend, ADC, Schuco, Braun, EKS, ChoiceMMed.


Something about myself

I live with my wife, Margaret, who is heavily involved in community development and local government. A former city councillor, Margaret is a long-term Wainuiomata Community Board member. She is also a free-lance journalist, teacher and inventor of a maths teaching aid.

Our home is on the edge of a large bush reserve in one of the many beautiful areas in the Greater Wellington Region of New Zealand

Interests: I love Baroque music of the 16th century - especially the German and Italian composers of that era - and in particular, Telemann and Corelli.

I have also been connected for many years with the Wellington Study Group, a group of like-minded people who seek answers to the mysteries of life.

Personal philosophy: My personal philosophy of life is that people are more important than things! And I love the line from Tennyson's poem, Ulysses "To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield" This encapsulates, for me, the idea that one never gives up until the last breath is drawn.

Personal satisfaction: The amount of satisfaction I have gained from this enterprise far outweighs any monetary return, as the opportunity to meet people and make, not only customers but, new friends.
