Flexicare Lanka Ltd., a fully owned subsidiary of Flexicare Group, UK, is in the process of setting up a state-of-the-art modern manufacturing facility in Bandaragama, a Board Of Investment approved project with a total investment of over $ 10 million.
This will be the first time that a fully-fledged facility is established for medical consumables and devices, with a view to export a significant amount of the products manufactured in Sri Lanka. It is envisaged that over 90% of the production will be exported, bringing in significant foreign exchange to the country and providing employment to 600 employees within the fully commercialised manufacturing site. The local distribution of the products will be managed through their exclusive distributor Technomedics International Ltd.
The year 2019 also marks the 30th anniversary for Flexicare under the same leadership. The leadership had a vision that sought to take a medical device manufacturing company in the heart of the UK and turn it into an internationally recognised innovator, designer, manufacturer and supplier of medical devices. Today it has 12 subsidiaries around the world and is active in over 110 countries.
Flexicare has offices across Europe, the Middle East, India, Far East, USA and Australia and can respond to customers’ needs, providing a fast and efficient service.
With over 30 years of experience in the design, development and manufacture of medical devices, Flexicare has developed a world-class reputation. The Company›s vision today is no different than what it was when it started in 1989 - to become the preferred and most trusted healthcare manufacturer for products that enhance patient care, pioneering and leading the way in airway and respiratory management.
«We strongly feel that the project will significantly contribute to the growth of the national economy and help towards the achievement of the Government’s long-term goals relating to “Vision 2025” for the development of the healthcare sector,» a spokesman said.
