New MD for Sirane Medical & Healthcare division
A NEW MD has been appointed to Sirane’s Medical & Healthcare division as the company looks to expand – with a dedicated manufacturing facility also planned within the next 12 months.
Jeremy Haydn-Davies, Sirane sales director, has been appointed to the role of managing director in the medical & healthcare division to spearhead the expansion and grow the business.
A stand-alone medical & healthcare manufacturing unit and offices elsewhere in Telford will allow the company to increase production as well as look at adding additional product ranges.
Jeremy Haydn-Davies said: “The medical and healthcare sector offers Sirane a great opportunity, and so I am very excited to be given the chance to be the person to move the division forward.
“With an already great range of products, and a new manufacturing site on the way, it’s a great time to be involved, and we’ve got plans to really grow a thriving and distinct division.
“With our expertise as a company in absorbency, material science and product development, there’s plenty of products we can already offer, as well as many more yet-to-be developed.”
Sirane is a manufacturing, design and product-development company which is based in Telford, Shropshire, and is Europe’s market leader in absorbent products. We have a network of agents and distributors, and our medical & healthcare products are sold both in the UK & overseas.
Our medical & healthcare product range includes consumables such as absorbent non-slip disposable floor mats, absorbent tourniquet drapes and absorbent products for use in dental surgery. We also manufacture products for compliant specimen transportation, including 95 kPa bags, absorbents for use in the funeral/mortuary world, and spillage protection for use in labs.
Some of the items – such as absorbent non-slip disposable floor mats which are used in operating theatres, scrub areas etc – are available from stock and delivered in just 48 hours.
Jeremy Haydn-Davies said: “Disposable items, delivered quickly from stock, is a big part of our business plan for the division, but we’ll still be looking to offer bespoke items and develop new products – whatever the client’s needs are, as a company we’ll be able to help.
“While some of our products are very much standardised, as a company Sirane has always prided itself on being able to make exactly what the customer wants, not just what we want to make. And anyway, at Sirane we believe we don’t make standard products, we make great products!
“The hard-work very much starts here. As managing director, I’ll be looking to be as involved as possible, and I am very much looking forward to getting out and visiting potential customers. There’s already a very strong medical & healthcare sales team, so I am setting challenging targets…”
