Tim Mitchell, CEO of Iqarus said: “Our ambition since launching Iqarus has been to rapidly grow into a global provider of health solutions in the world’s difficult and remote environments.

“The acquisition of Exmed is a major catalyst for our international expansion.

“The calibre of international humanitarian and government customers that they serve and the level of trust that they command in the market is a testament to their skill and professionalism.”

Mr Healy added: “The unique vision, customer approach and strong executive team within Iqarus is a compelling mix and we are looking forward to providing medical services within remote and difficult areas of the globe through a successful, growing and expanding brand."
