St Patrick’s Day is a great day to celebrate the Irish around the world so it was the perfect time for Midlands company Critical Healthcare to announce its latest global business news.
The company’s announcement of a €10m deal with the leading international private provider of emergency services in Europe was made during the visit of the Minister of State for European Affairs Helen McEntee to Copenhagen.
Critical Healthcare, which provides medical products and services to the pre-hospital market and ambulance providers, signed the deal worth €10m over five years with Danish company Falck.
It also announced that it would be hiring 30 more staff – more than doubling its workforce – over the next five years and that its export levels would rise significantly as a result of this and other deals.
Founded 18 years ago by Seamus Reilly and Dr Anne Cusack, Critical Healthcare’s Falck deal centres on its multi award-winning procurement platform Medlogistix.
This platform has already dramatically improved the supply chain and procurement landscape for the National Ambulance Service of Ireland as well as multiple emergency service providers in the UK.
As a company passionate about building on existing strengths and opportunities in Ireland, and across the Midlands region in particular, Critical Healthcare was the perfect company to make an announcement on St Patrick’s Day.
The Irish media also supported the announcement which gained coverage in a wide-range of media outlets including Newstalk, the Irish Independent, the Irish Examiner, the Sunday Business Post, Tech Central, Business World and Independent.ie.
