Engineered die-cut components for the medical sector
By Lee O'Shaughnessy
Visit to Medica, Dusseldorf, Germany
Medica, the world’s leading healthcare exhibition, recently took place in Dusseldorf, Germany. I came across hundreds of exhibitors showcasing thousands of innovative products, that were clearly impressing both clinicians and distributors. Behind each of these products are the (slightly!) less glamorous but essential components that manufacturers need to produce their final goods.
Engineered Die-Cut Medical Components
Many healthcare stakeholders know us for our sustainable PPE, but we also manufacture engineered materials and parts, including everything from die-cut medical device components to manufacturing patient eye protection products using low trauma release adhesives.
For us, Medica was a great opportunity to meet up with our partners in the supply chain and speak to new companies about how they could benefit from our unique value proposition. In a crowded market, it can be difficult to stand out on any one specific benefit, which is why our value proposition pulls together collectively unique USPs.
Our value proposition is comprised of three key promises:
- Our solutions are designed and manufactured in the UK, using secure local UK supply chains and supported with expert technical knowledge
- Quality shouldn’t cost – Tecman operate efficient manufacturing processes using automation technology and draw on 25 years’ experience within the medical component sector to deliver high-quality, cost competitive products
- We focus on sustainability, from reducing waste during manufacturing processes to using biomaterials where possible
Research & Development Programme
R&D is front and centre of our strategy at Tecman. We’ve always succeeded through innovation and efficiency, and regularly involve clinicians and customer partners in the design process to ensure products and device components exceed expectations.
This focus on R&D enables us to supply a wide range of products including self-adhesive disposable surgical items, theatre consumables, ventilator gaskets, super soft medical grade adhesive for use on skin and more. Find out more about our medical die-cutting here.
A Trusted Reliable Partnership
Delivering for our customers isn’t just about innovation though. Supply chains have been tested to destruction during the pandemic. Many businesses were simply unable to source components for their own manufacturing processes due to a perfect storm of logistical and availability issues.
By ensuring all of our design and manufacturing activities take place at our Leamington Spa HQ in Warwickshire, we are able to provide our partners with confidence that they have a trusted UK based partner with a resilient supply chain on hand to provide technical support whenever required.
Values are important in business and I’m proud to work for a company that puts these so transparently into action to support the development of trusted partnerships - pioneering spirit, surpassing expectations, sustainability, and togetherness. You can find out more about them here.
