DKSH expands its collaboration with Healthium Medtech to distribute its high-quality surgical products to clinics and hospitals across the region.

Bangkok, Thailand, January 13, 2021 – DKSH Business Unit Healthcare, Asia’s leading partner for healthcare companies seeking to grow their business in Asia and beyond, has expanded its partnership with Healthium Medtech. The partner company is a leading global player and innovator in medical devices as well as the world’s fourth largest surgical suture manufacturer and the largest surgical suture needle manufacturer by volume, exporting their products to over 70 countries. After signing an agreement in Myanmar this October, DKSH and Healthium have now extended their partnership to also include Thailand, Cambodia and Laos where DKSH will offer full-agency services, manage distribution and commercialize Healthium products. The agreement is in line with DKSH's strategy of expanding into higher value-added segments and services, such as medical devices.

 

The Healthium Group has a lineage of 36 years in creating precision-based medical devices across the world. Its products are used in 1 in 6 surgeries globally. Healthium is the largest exporter of surgical sutures from India.

 

As a partner, DKSH can help Healthium deliver a strong market entry across key Asian markets, such as Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar. Healthium can quickly build its brand and gain market share by tapping into DKSH’s extensive and experienced sales force and marketing and distribution channels to ensure their products reach hospitals, clinics, and medical channels across the country. This partnership with DKSH will help to fulfil Healthium’s vision of “providing access to precision Medtech to every patient, globally.”

 

Anish Bafna, CEO & MD Healthium Group, said: “We are delighted to extend our partnership with DKSH in Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar. Our products are manufactured to global standards with USFDA and CE approvals, with acceptance in over 70 countries. It is our vision to provide access to precision medtech for every patient globally, and we look forward to leveraging DKSH’s extensive network, quality of operations and scale to reach clinics and hospitals in the region with our precision medtech products that facilitate patient safety and better outcomes.”

 

Bijay Singh, Global Head of Business Unit Healthcare, DKSH, commented: “The extended partnership with Healthium demonstrates our commitment to bringing high-quality medical products to Asian patients and enriching their lives. This collaboration will not only show another milestone in expanding our portfolio, but also strengthen our goal to become the preferred partner for hospitals for medical devices. Through working with Healthium, we are proud to improve access to high-quality sutures for all hospitals and clinics in the region, while committing to driving growth for our partner in delivering their innovative and high-quality products.”
