Elos conquers competition and continues expansion in China

Complex regulations, high demand and the strain of a very competitive industry – these are everyday challenges that medical technology companies must overcome. Elos Medtech operates with experience and competence, providing turnkey solutions for some of the world’s most prominent players within the medical device sphere. Despite high competition Elos Medtech is yet again expanding, now with new offices and production unit in Tianjin, China. Further investments are also made in new technology for developing dental implants using patient’s own teeth as models.

Elos maintains two business areas; Medical Technology and Metrology. The core aim of all commitments made by Elos is to provide qualitative development and production services to some of the world’s leading industries. Dental and orthopedic implants, instruments and precision mechanical components for medical technology products and measuring devices for demanding industries are some of the key product categories. Regardless of product area, innovative turnkey solutions are provided.

Partner through Complete Performance
Elos Medtech is a strategic development- and production partner. The Complete Performance offer entails an unbroken chain from design and manufacturing, to packaging, distribution and logistics.
Having extensive experience of product development, design of dental implants, orthopedic products and medical devices, Elos Medtech is a prominent partner for any company wishing to expand in these areas on a global basis. The company is traditionally concerned with the development of other companies’ products, but following the trends in the medical technology business at large, Elos Medtech has recently introduced some OEM-products.
One example is the standardized tool for fixing dental implants to the bone. This tool, in the shape of a small key, can be produced with the logotypes of Elos Medtech’s clients if required. Some 15 companies have already purchased the product as part of further development of their own portfolios, which underlines the fact that Elos Medtech is an important partner throughout product and company development.
Aside from the development and production of instruments, prostheses and implants for advanced dental and fracture surgery, the company also offers components for bone-anchored hearing implants and multi-use injection systems.

Expanding in China
Elos Medtech is built up by over 50 years of experience. The expansion in Tianjin is a result of the company’s close collaboration with Novo Nordisk and the increase in demand for multi-use injection systems. Approximately 110 employees are currently working at the Tianjin-site that is still under development.
Elos CEO Göran Brorsson stresses that this is not a means of extracting low-cost production for exporting back to Europe, but a natural development where Elos, in accordance with client needs, is able to establish business close to important and emerging markets. The production facilities in Sweden and Denmark are still to serve the European market. The aim of the Tianjin-site is to meet the needs of a rapidly accelerating market in China.

Dental implants of tomorrow
Future developments are largely dependent on client activities. “Dental implants are considered to make up a mature product category with a well-established market. The next step is to develop more areas of implementation for these products”, Göran Brorsson explains.
Dental implants of tomorrow will be tailored to each patient using 3D-technology. For a natural look, the new implants are created using each individual patient’s natural teeth and bone structure. The same principles are applied when creating new hearing implants as well as orthopedic implants.
Elos Medtech has made substantial investments in products and technology which supports the new CAD/CAM technology in order to develop dental implants tailored to each patient’s needs.
