About the event

Ireland is the UK’s nearest neighbour and fifth largest export market. The health sector has both public and private providers and prizes innovation. COVID has added to pre-existing pressures and there are real opportunities for West Midlands suppliers with innovative products and a strong USP. Purchasing by the public and private healthcare services is often done through distributors so forging links with an appropriate local partner provides a strong opportunity for market entry.

If you are a West Midlands-based SME, join this event organised by the Enhanced Export Growth Project and DIT Ireland to pitch your product or service to two well-connected Irish distributors who will also request subsequent 1-1s with suppliers of interest:

Fleetwood Healthcare

A broad-based medical device distributor, bringing innovative medical technologies from global suppliers to clinicians in Ireland for over 25 years. They provide products and services across all areas of the hospital with a focus on GI, Endoscopy, Theatre, Urology and Women’s Health. 

They are approved suppliers to the National Health Service in the UK, Health Service Executive in Ireland and private hospital groups across the island of Ireland. Fleetwood Healthcare are MDR compliant and ready for trade when the UK’s EU transition period ends. Products of particular interest are those relating to:  

  • endoscopy  
  • theatre 
  • ENT (ear, nose and throat),  
  • orthopaedics 
  • breast surgery 
  • ophthalmology  
  • single use medical devices 
  • N.B. they do not sell capital equipment unless it is low value and facilitates the sale of disposable items. 

Lynch Medical Supplies 

Lynch Medical Supplies started out as the sole distributor of Arthrex, one of the world’s leading orthopaedic sports injury companies, but has diversified into sectors like disposable hospital products, hygiene products, home care and nursing home supplies.  

Broad areas of interest include: 

  • Theatre supplies – e.g. products that are used in the recovery phase.  
  • Thermal blankets  
  • Mattresses and beds for use in medical settings. Quick shipments are important here 
  • Products related to ENT
