CleanPatch Expands into Ireland’s Healthcare Market with Keaney Medical Ltd.
August 22nd 2016 – Surface Medical Inc. (“SMI”) announced today that it has expanded its presence into Ireland with a distribution agreement with Keaney Medical Ltd. (“Keaney Medical”) to better service healthcare customers in this market.
Founded in 1989, Keaney Medical offers innovative healthcare products to its customers with a strong focus on pressure relieving medical mattresses. Keaney also offers leading after-sales service and support, and a mattress rental service; all of which furthers its commitment to improving patient care. This represents another leading distribution agreement executed by the Rodnight Partnership, the leading medical device export firm engaged by SMI to conduct CleanPatch® international sales.
“As we continue to educate healthcare facilities and grow the CleanPatch business, we are delighted to connect with Keaney Medical to ensure we have strong support and momentum in Ireland,” comments Martin Rodnight, International Sales at Surface Medical. “Keaney Medical is an ideal partner for CleanPatch due to its strong local healthcare relationships and deep understanding of the medical mattress market.”
“Keaney Medical is delighted to partner with Surface Medical in bringing this innovative product to Ireland. CleanPatch will assist in extending the life of customers’ mattresses in hospitals and nursing homes across the country,” comments Denise Lawson, Sales Manager at Keaney Medical. “In addition, we believe the product will be of considerable benefit in helping prolong the life of our own rental mattress stock. The tests we carried out have confirmed the durability of CleanPatch after repeated decontamination treatments.”
Keaney Medical complements existing CleanPatch distribution in other market segments and will therefore increase product access to new healthcare customers.
