All the latest news from Wales’ leading recruitment agency.
Mackworth Healthcare, a Bridgend-based company which designs and makes hoists and slings for medical patients, has announced that it has won its first orders in Australia and Spain.
The contract wins were co-ordinated by the company’s overseas partners Aidacare and Ayudus Diminicas and range between 500 and 1,000 units per month in each country.
Mackworth has also secured repeat orders for 2015.
General manager Lee Reeves: “It is very unusual to achieve such high volumes with initial orders but having inspected our facilities, Aidacare had a positive picture of what our Welsh manufacturing capabilities truly are.
“We are absolutely delighted with this progress. Australia is a huge emerging market for us and with great potential due to its new and wealthy status. It’s one we really wanted to crack this year.”
