TriMedika Secures Four Export Contracts

TriMedika Secures Four Export Contracts

TriMedika has secured four new orders of its innovative non-contact thermometer at Medica 2018, the world’s leading trade fair for the medical industry. The deals in Switzerland, Germany and Austria are the latest for this growing Belfast-based medical devices business.

Co-founders Julie Brien, COO, and Dr Roisin Molloy, CEO, have been working closely with Invest Northern Ireland to develop and establish the customer base for TRITEMP™, TriMedika’s high-tech thermometer which can read temperatures without ever touching the body. The product is designed to save hospitals money, optimise infection control and enable busy nurses to spend more time with patients.

Commenting on the success, Julie Brien said: “Medica was the optimum platform to continue spreading the word about how our new non-contact thermometer delivers on the ‘Triple Aim for Health’. As well as securing four new orders we gained additional contacts with distributors for over 35 countries including Europe and the Middle East which we intend to develop at Arab Health in January 2019. Global presence and brand awareness is a strategic focus for TriMedika as we scale the business and build the team. The ongoing support and advice from Invest NI has been central in enabling us to penetrate hospital markets and secure sales.”

TriMedika has benefited from a range of technical, trade and employment support from Invest NI, to help secure product IP, undertake export market visits and recruit seven additional roles including two sales managers which are already in post.

Susan O’Kane, Eastern Regional Manager, Invest Northern Ireland, said:“The results generated at Medica demonstrate the global appetite for TriMedika’s innovative medical technology. The business has maintained an ongoing relationship with Invest NI to support its development activities and is driving forward progress with its growth strategy. The seven additional jobs being created at TriMedika are a welcome investment that will help further propel the business in its target markets.”

TRITEMP is a new non-contact infrared thermometer for clinical use, giving easy, fast and accurate body temperature reading in hospitals. Its ergonomically designed angled head ensures optimal orientation for sensor alignment, ease of use and user comfort.

TRITEMP™ requires ZERO consumables offering up to x 5 cost savings when compared with other types of thermometers used in hospitals today. As a non-contact device, TriTemp makes ZERO contact with the patient, enabling optimised infection control.
