Sumed International UK has been appointed contractor for Cumbria County Council for the service and repair of specialised equipment.
The contract, which starts on April 1, is for a period of three years and activity involves equipment servicing and repairs for specialist lifts, hoists and specialised equipment owned by the council.
Sumed is a supplier of branded products designed to provide solutions to the pain and discomfort caused by pressure sores and pressure ulcers.
But the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic has led it to focus on service and repair-related activity.
The company said its Leycare division, which provides services to Lancashire County Council, has demonstrated good growth during 2020.
Sumed executive chairman Graham Collyer said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this contract. We have seen a period of good sales growth in 2020, but in the challenging times presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, service-related activity has been a focus for us.”
Martin Walker, Sumed’s executive director with responsibility for servicing activity, said: “The contract award is great news, but the hard work starts now. We look forward to welcoming new members to the Sumed family and to working with the Cumbria County Council team.”
