Olympus UK opens Vision House DIAGNOSTIC AND HEALTHCARE solutions provider Olympus UK has opened its new UK corporate headquarters at Vision House in Watford.
The VIP opening event at Vision House included the launch of Olympus’ new clinical chemistry analyser, the AU680, which was viewed in a new onsite demonstration suite.
Following a meal at the Grove Golf Resort Hotel, guests met at Vision House for a series of presentations and an exclusive tour of the new demonstration facilities. David Ricketts, Laboratory Manager at North Middlesex Hospital, discussed the benefits of the AU680 analyser.
The tour of Vision House covered a range of Olympus UK healthcare product groups: patient safety, voice, endoscopy and microscopy. The demonstration facilities gave the guests an overview of how the company’s platforms are integrated.
Underpinning this range of products is the Olympus Managed Services Contract, which allows complete vendor choice. Robin Modak of Genmed ME, Olympus UK’s financial partners, said: “The Olympus Managed Service Contracts are developed totally with the customer in mind. This is your contract, to meet your needs to deliver the best technical and financial solution.”
Leanne Annereau, Olympus UK’s Marketing Manager – Scientific, summed up the event: “We were delighted to open our doors to so many customers, not only to launch the new facilities but to demonstrate our continued commitment as their lead pathology and healthcare solutions partner to deliver innovative technical solutions and comprehensive business support services.”
Kirkham Young supports local community HEALTHCARE AND SCIENTIFIC SALES RECRUITMENT company Kirkham Young is sponsoring two community organisations in the Sussex region.
Making a donation to the hospice charity Demelza James and sponsoring a rugby club’s junior match kit have enabled the Hailsham-based company to make a difference to the local community.
This sponsorship follows Kirkham Young’s support of Oxfam’s GiftAid initiative at Christmas, and reflects its commitment to social responsibility.
“We wanted to be able to turn all our hard work into something beneficial for the wider community,” said Director Tina Young. “These organisations offer two fantastic services to the local area – Demelza James providing a hospice at home service for over 150 children in the South East with life-threatening and life-limiting illness, and Heathfield Hurricanes Rugby Union Club giving the chance for over 350 children to play quality minis rugby. We are delighted to be able to offer our support throughout 2008.”
