Biotech firm Randox Laboratories is highlighting the impact of its export strategy to Latin America, as sales of the firm’s products into the region in 2014 exceed £5 million.
The announcement comes as Irish Health Minister, Leo Varadkar paid a visit to a clinical laboratory in Mexico to see Randox products in use.
The Crumlin based firmhas been exporting its innovative tests and technology to hospitals, clinics and R&D labs across the country for almost 20 years.
Welcoming the Minister’s visit, Latin America manager Dominic Hasson said the team’s success is due to product strength and to developing good relations:
“Randox exports to 20 countries in Latin America, many of which are strengthening their healthcare systems and as a result we are seeing increased demand for our high quality diagnostic products, year-on-year; Mexico is no exception.
“Randox has invested in Spanish speaking staff to assist with this market, providing teams dedicated to the region, who work to develop and maintain relationships with customers; this is vital to growing the Randox footprint in Latin America.”
