Cortech Healthcare has launched a new manufacturing base where it will design and produce new mobility product lines and it is understood to be in talks with a number of distributors for the electronic commodes.
The manufacturing site is on the Isle of Man, which is the new home of Cortech following its relocation in August.
Officially opened by Minister Laurence Skelly, the celebration was attended by members of the Isle of Man government, the director general of the BHTA, a number of key dignitaries and collaborative business partners from across the Island and the UK.
Malcolm Cooke, chairman of Cortech, hopes that the company’s new products will “greatly improve the lives of the people who use [them]”.
“The Island is getting behind a revolutionary product, demonstrating it is a visionary and forward-thinking place to do business, which understands what it has to offer to companies like ours.”
Minister for Enterprise, Hon Laurence Skelly MHK, said: “The department is focused on investing and supporting businesses at all stages of growth and we’re delighted to see the development of Cortech through the investment of the EDS.
“The Isle of Man is an ideal base to operate businesses like Cortech, centrally placed within the British Isles and with prompt and easy access to highly professional support services, a reliable, resilient infrastructure and skilled employees.”
