Lynch Medical Supplies (LMS), a manufacturer, distributor and service provider for the healthcare and medical industries has announced a significant investment in a new central headquarters facility in Swords.
The move to the 15,000 sq foot facility coincides with a rebranding programme undertaken by LMS in recent months as the company prepares for future growth over the next twelve to eighteen months.
The company, which currently employs 16 people, currently operates in Ireland, United Kingdom, Continental Europe, Caribbean, USA, and South Africa.
LMS provides a wide range of products for the healthcare & medical industries including both surgical & orthopaedic products and medical consumables. During 2010 LMS extended its service offering into Irish Pharmacies and has already over 500 Pharmacy clients in this fast growing market segment.
The firm provides healthcare and medical products and educational services for these products.
John Lynch, Chairman of Lynch Medical Supplies said: "We compete on an international scale against global multi-national players and the investment in the new HQ facility will provide us with the scale necessary to grow and develop our business into the future.
"Over the next twelve to eighteen months, we will expand our product offering into the existing orthopaedic markets and have high hopes for our move into specialist joint reconstruction. As part of this growth we also aim to recruit an additional five staff by the end of 2011."
In 2007, Lynch Medical bought Midland Bandages Ltd, a specialist manufacture and exporter of high quality bandages supplying the HSE, private sector and Veterinary suppliers within the Irish Healthcare Marketplace.
In 2010, Midland Bandages rebranded as MBL Healthcare, extended its offering direct to Irish Pharmacy.
The investment in the new HQ facility and the rebranding program is the culmination of the integration of MBL into the Lynch Medical Supplies operation (LMS).
