TriMedika has also seen significant uplift in 2020/2021, increasing staff from four to 14. New hires include a five strong dedicated Digital Marketing Team, a Training and Quality Projects Manager, Office Manager, Sales Coordinator and an Engineering Intern.

The recent success is due to a dedicated marketing strategy, improved distributor networks and many countries moving to mandate the use of non-contact thermometers in healthcare.
