The Rotherham-based company has seen significant export growth in established European markets and the opening of new sales channels further afield, notably in the Middle East.
A critical boost has come from the launch of two market leading products.
The Marsden M-420 (http://www.marsden-
Marsden’s M-420 and M-430 scales are the UK’s first Class III Medical Scales to use Bluetooth. Managing Director, Richard Black, says that ‘Marsden has been working closely with two important providers of telehealth devices and software. Both companies are keen to add Marsden scales as peripheral devices to their systems and within a month of launch we have sold a pleasing number of Bluetooth scales, which has given an early initial payback to our considerable investment. We anticipate a fairly substantial growth in sales as increasing numbers of healthcare providers consider forward thinking ways of delivering their services in a cost effective manner. Interestingly the concept of telehealth and the latest technologies have been readily embraced by our partners in the Middle East’.
Martin Webb, Senior PR Advisor at Medilink has been impressed with the Marsden’s raised profile over the past few years. Martin comments that ‘Marsden have shown a level of sophistication in their marketing work that is normally associated with companies with substantially greater resources. They have invested wisely, become market leaders in their sector and speak with authority on all matters related to medical weighing'.
The Awards ceremony will take place on 19th March in Leeds.
