"This is a great company to work for, and Im very glad I took that warehouse job all those years ago!"
After a record-breaking year, healthcare equipment supplier Innova Care Concepts is celebrating a decade in business this month. The company prides itself on finding and distributing the most innovative healthcare equipment available today.
Originally established in 2008, Innova has gone from strength-to-strength and has quickly become a multi-million-pound business. The company is now a leading supplier in hospitals, hospices, care homes, and even private individuals’ homes. This year alone, Innova has won two NHS contracts and multiple deals with Spire Healthcare Group and other private hospital groups.
Innova has also been awarded contracts to supply and install four new stainless-steel hydrotherapy pools, and the company has been chosen as exclusive dealers of Permobil and Volker products within the UK. 2018 also saw the company expand to take on case management and litigation projects.
Tom Hulbert, Innova’s managing director, said:
“When we first started this company ten years ago, we wanted to find a way to combine functionality and aesthetics in healthcare equipment. This has been a massive year for Innova; we’ve smashed our targets and we’ve really cemented our position as a go-to supplier of innovative, high-quality healthcare equipment in different markets.”
Innova has recently taken on four new installation staff, an engineer, and a design technician to keep up with the demand for its products and services. 2019 will also see the company begin work at the new NHS Midland Metropolitan Hospital where 280 Innova hoists will be installed in a deal worth almost £1 million.
In fact, Innova has achieved 60% growth this year. No doubt that the company’s multiple contract awards, exclusive dealerships agreements, and its inclusion on various healthcare group supply chains has helped with this.
Cory Keir, who has been part of the Innova team since 2016, was initially hired as a warehouse operative. He has since worked his way up to be Innova’s senior project manager and will oversee all installations and manage the company’s new recruits. Cory said:
“Innova has provided me with so much training and opportunities for career development so to now be our senior project manager is truly an honour. This is a great company to work for, and I’m very glad I took that warehouse job all those years ago!
“We’ve taken on six new members of staff over the past few months so we can keep up with all the work that’s going on. It looks as though 2019 will be just as – if not more – busy. Bring it on!”
