CorrMed opens first European warehouse

Forest of Dean medical equipment supplier CorrMed has revealed the opening of a warehouse in Europe, after a period of significant growth.

As a supplier of medical and vaccine bags, designed with infection control attributes at their core, CorrMed said their products and expertise have been in high demand.

During the pandemic, the firm said it had not only used the time to research and invest in new products, but also analyse its supply chain and invest in additional warehousing, distribution facilities and logistics staff.

This year, Brexit has also caused delays for the business and created uncertainty about how deliveries of products could be exported to Europe.

To ensure that they could continue to offer a fast service and delivery on their products, CorrMed said it signed an agreement in April 2021 with a specialist warehousing and fulfilment organisation Kinesis.

Based in the Netherlands, Kinesis Medical is said to be a one-stop shop and offers its services only to the medical and cosmetics industry - an ideal partner for CorrMed.

Katie Houghton, managing director of CorrMed said: "We knew we needed to find a solution to our distribution dilemma, the lead-in time was just unacceptable both for us and our European partners.

"Working with Kinesis Medical gives us an end-to-end solution, which we can trust and rely on. In June 2021 we received our first shipment of Porta Thermal products into the Netherlands.

"We are thrilled to now be in a situation where distributors in Europe will have a fast delivery of our products and we look forward to developing this market further."
