A Japanese company is looking to export medical and training devices to the EU.
Their medical devices are a cuff inflator and oral moisture checker. Their training products on the other hand help in practicing injections and suturing among others.
The company is aiming to conclude a distribution agreement with EU distributors with contacts in the medical sector.
A Japanese medical device manufacturing and trading company is seeking distribution partners in the EU for medical devices and training equipment.
The company is an international company established through investments from three countries: Japan, Russia and Taiwan.
It is striving to establish itself as a global company and therefore now aims to enter the European market.
The company is active in three main types of business:
- Planning and developing medical and health-care devices.
- Trading business: triangle trading with Russia and Taiwan, import and export of medical and healthcare devices.
- MAH (Marketing Authorization Holder) / DMAH (Designated Marketing Authorization Holder): support for registration for overseas manufacturers in Japan.
The company is looking for distributors for its medical devices and medical training devices/simulators in the EU.
Their targeted end users are the companies and educational establishments who need innovative medical devices and medical simulators for professional training.
A distribution agreement would be concluded with the partners having relevant contacts in the healthcare sector and that possess experience with import procedures. The company would be able to offer a 10-30% discount for the first order (rate depending on the product) to partners who would be able to provide test marketing services including a marketing report.
Their products are offering the following product line-up:
1. Oral moisture checker
This product allows for users to measure oral moisture in 2 seconds, whereas traditional measuring methods required a more complicated process. The product makes checking easier and less invasive while maintaining a higher level of safety during use.
2. Cuff inflator
This is a device used with an endotracheal tube or tracheostomy tube to check the expansion, contraction and internal pressure of the balloon. The product has an analog display on LCD, which changes colour depending on the situation for an easier use. The pressure can be controlled, thus preventing excess pressure and thereby protecting the trachea.
3. Injection training kit.
This kit provides efficient training tools for healthcare professionals to improve their injection skills.
It allows for the visualisation of the pressure generated by injection or suction. After practicing about 50 times, users will be able to perform blood collection and injection with an exerted pressure close to the standard.
4. Medical training kits
These include a breast cancer palpation training model, an injection training model and a suturing training plate. The products reproduce the human skin in a more realistic way compared to standard products.
The partner should have the following characteristics:
-The partner should be a distributor who has business channels in the sector of medical devices and medical training devices/ simulators.
-The partner should be dealing with companies and educational establishments as end users.
-It is also required to have previous importing experience.
-Moreover, previous experience in regulatory procedure would be an advantage.
Finally, eventually being able to provide test marketing services including marketing report is advantageous
The company has had a distribution agreement with a Russian company for their product for more than 10 years.
