Exclusive £10m NHS deal for Techtex

Exclusive £10m NHS deal for Techtex

Middleton-based Techtex has become the sole supplier to NHS Scotland and NHS Wales in a £10m deal.

Now in its 20th year, the firm has been supplying the NHS in Scotland and in Wales for five years, with patient cleansing wipes.

Now employing 70 people TTS are based at a modern 70,000 square feet headquarters and manufacturing facility close to the M60.

Sales director David Beardsworth said: “We couldn’t have asked for a better anniversary celebration for the company.

"New business such as this proves that our investment in brand development was justified, because under our Clinitex brand, the company has become a major player in the UK and Ireland; supplying to specialist distributors who sell to hospitals, day nurseries and nursing homes.

"And, the healthcare business has been the bedrock from which we’ve expanded our operations through the development of an industrial division, supplying branded and own label wet wipes for use in industry and the DIY sector."

As MEN reports, the newly secured contracts, worth in excess of £10m over four years, are among a number of achievements that have seen Techtex grow from its formation in Longsight in 1996 into a £16m turnover operation.
