A Sheffield-based provider of surgical instrumentation to hospitals, dental surgeries and veterinary practices has secured its first export order to Japan with a contract to supply medical tuning forks.
Uniplex (UK) Ltd won the contract with Muranaka Medical after joining a trade mission led by the Yorkshire and the Humber divisions of healthcare technologies sector representative body Medilink and the Department for International Trade (DIT).
Uniplex is supplying Osaka-based Muranaka Medical with its Gardiner Brown model of medical tuning fork and aluminium alloy variants of the fork.
The forks are used in almost every GP surgery throughout the UK but Muranaka had not seen them before the trade mission.
Adriaan Posthuma, managing director of Uniplex (UK), said: “This valuable and prestigious contract with Muranaka Medical emanated directly from the Medilink/DIT trade mission to Japan and South Korea.
