"Significant" global expansion for Yorkshire ostomy specialist with new international hubs
A Yorkshire medical product developer has announced that it is targeting “significant” global expansion as it opens new international bases.
Trio Healthcare, a specialist ostomy product developer and manufacturer based in Skipton, is establishing new bases in Asia Pacific and Middle East and North Africa (MENA).
The new hubs have been opened with the aim of introducing Trio’s products into 20 new countries by the end of the year.
This comes as the company also agrees a new distribution partnership allowing its products to enter the Republic of Ireland for the first time, partnering with medical device distributor Ceannaire Medical.
Chris Lane, chief operating officer at Trio Healthcare, commented: “Alongside investment in our UK operations, targeting new countries and expanding in our existing territories will help to significantly further our position in the global ostomy market.
“The MENA and Asia Pacific markets in particular are high value and rapidly growing, so it’s vital we have a dedicated presence there, and we’re thrilled to have Christian and Hussain join the team.
“Their extensive knowledge and experience within their respective regions will enable us to gain a foothold across a wide range of new countries.
“As well as targeting growth further afield, European exports remain a priority, and we have been able to record significant sales revenues on the continent via key new partnerships with the likes of Ceannaire.
“Our R&D challenges the lethargy within the market and means that we can ultimately provide ostomates across the globe with greater choice when it comes to their day-to-day stoma care.
“It’s an area within the medical devices industry that has attracted less attention than other conditions over the years, but is primed for new developments that genuinely improve quality of life for patients and ease healthcare burdens for clinicians.”
