Communication | Pavillion Medical purchase assets from T-Med in preparation of new product portfolio

As of 1st July 2007, an agreement has been reached for Pavillion Medical Ltd to purchase the assets of T-Med Medical Ltd from leading Engineering Group - Turkington Industries Ltd. 

Since being established in 2003, T-Med Medical has gained a strong presence in the UK healthcare market developing products for clinicians and patients, including specialist equipment for bariatric patients.  Following the acquisition of T-Med assets, sales of all products - from bariatric beds and chair frames to specialist motorised drip stands, will now be conducted under the banner of Pavillion Medical Ltd.

Gary McMahon, Managing Director of Pavillion Medical Ltd, commented: “T-Med products are exceptionally well-designed and engineered, and it is the attention to detail in the planning process that has helped to accelerate the company in a relatively short period of time.”

“Through this acquisition we will focus on developing the product range further to put Pavillion Medical at the forefront of providing specialist engineered products, such as those to treat and aid obese patients”.

In the UK alone, adult obesity rates have soared to 23% and morbid obesity rates are rising rapidly. Europe is also seeing an alarming increase in childhood obesity, which is damaging quality of life and reducing life expectancy. Pavillion Medical aim to provide innovative supply solutions to the European healthcare market that will keep costs competitive and at the same time continue to grow market share. The company already has new products in the design phase, including both Pavillion Medical designs and some from T-Med. Gary McMahon concluded: “This will make for a very exciting year with specialist medical equipment launched into the international market place in November”.

For further information about the new product range, please contact Gary McMahon, Managing Director of Pavillion Medical Ltd, on telephone: +44 (0) 1282 419700.
