A Welsh-based supplier of human tissue for transplant has opened its first international premises, near Mobile, Alabama, USA.
The company, which has worked closely with a number of American companies since it was founded in 2008, chose Mobile because of the number of medical supply companies who operate in the area and the excellent distribution links this creates.
It is hoped that Hospital Innovations Inc., as the company will be known in the US, will help the firm’s American suppliers have a smoother transition to bring products to market in the UK, with Hospital Innovations taking care of the sign off process on their behalf and gaining FTA approval.
Phil Davies, Managing Director of Hospital Innovations, said: “A lot of our work is closely linked with American suppliers and it makes good business sense for Hospital Innovations to have a base in a country where we already spend a lot of time. For the industry we’re in, Mobile was a logical choice for us with its medical links and the area is currently thriving with Airbus creating 4,000 jobs there.
“There is a well-established conference centre near Mobile which is synonymous with innovative medical conventions and we’re hoping that this will give us access to pioneering product designs which we can evaluate and assess at an early stage.”
Hospital Innovations was founded in January 2008 to deliver specialist products for use in orthopaedic and corrective surgery in an innovative and sustainable way. The Hospital Innovations product range is well established and incorporates innovative design and process to tried and tested technologies.
The major markets that Hospital Innovations operates in are hip revision, spinal surgery, restorative knee surgery, providing a number of innovative solutions for soft tissue damage related to the early onset of osteoarthritis of the knee and urology, which is a massive growth area, for laser fibre technology.
