Award-winning UK company looking to expand export links across the Middle East

15 January 2017

A multi-award-winning medical device manufacturing and distribution company is attending Arab Health 2017 to develop its export business across the Middle East.

GBUK offer a wide range of medical devices including specialist enteral feeding devices, consumables for surgical and post-operative care, and a comprehensive selection of products to assist in patient handling and positioning.

Building on their strong and successful growth in the UK, the company has ambitious plans to develop its export business throughout the region. They are attending Arab Health for the second time to showcase their extensive portfolio and meet potential new export partners.

GBUK products provide clinical performance and value. Added to this is their programme of research and development which has brought a number of innovative products and product design improvements to market.

Working globally in co-operation with industry partners and with international standards and regulatory authorities, the company has played a key role in the introduction of the ‘Stay Connected’ ENFit® and NRFit™ connectors for enteral feeding and neuraxial access systems.

The ‘Stay Connected’ programme is about reducing the risk of inadvertent misconnections between different delivery systems, and is a major step forward in improving patient safety.

The company will also be showcasing the new Banana Versal in-bed patient repositioning and transfer product range. Versal is an exciting new concept that overcomes the difficulties and disadvantages of the conventional slide sheets and slide mats that are used to move and reposition patients.

GBUK CEO Mark Thompson, said: “We are committed to improving patient care and work closely with clinicians to advance their portfolio of leading-edge products and improve lives.

“Each day in the UK, more than 213,000 of our products are used in caring for patients both in hospitals and in their own homes. We are now keen to expand throughout the Middle East and will be attending Arab Health to meet potential new distribution partners from the region.”

GBUK has a strong senior management team, who have a wide experience in the successful design and development, marketing and sales of healthcare devices. To arrange an appointment with the company contact [email protected]
