Theatre work is centrestage

Brandon Medical, the Leeds-based manufacturer of operating theatre lighting and equipment led by MD Graeme Hall, has seen a surge in overseas orders with exports now accounting for 45% of sales for the £6 million turnover business.

This is a 17% increase on the previous year and growth has been fuelled by the appointment of a network of a new distributors covering the major Asia Pacific countries, as well as substantial growth in the Middle East and Latin American markets, with large orders worth over £340,000 from healthcare and medical technology companies in Colombia and Mexico.

Brandon Medical moved to 50,000 sq ft premises in Morley two years ago, following a £2.5 million investment. The facility, which was opened by HRH Princess Anne, allowed the company to double its manufacturing capacity and it now employs a 48-strong workforce.
