Belfast based Medizar
, a specialist in hospital and clinical sanitiser products, has won significant business in the United Arab Emirates with assistance from Invest Northern Ireland.
Medizar specialises in the supply of leading edge technology anti-bacterial / microbial sanitiser products for the Health, Education, Pharmacy and Personal care markets.
Congratulating Medizar on its export deal, Olive Hill, Invest NI’s Director of Trade said: “Medizar took part in an Invest NI visit to Arab Health in January of this year where it first made contact with a major Saudi Distributor. A further follow up visit took place this summer where they discussed terms of a distribution agreement for the region and were successful in securing a deal to supply products worth £250,000 over the next two years.
“Making the commitment and visiting the potential customer for a follow up visit was the key to converting the initial meeting into a firm contract and is a strong endorsement of the company’s desire to succeed.
“This is an excellent achievement for a small but dynamic Northern Ireland company and is an important development which will give Medizar a solid base for long term growth in one of the world’s fastest developing markets.”
Medizar’s Managing Director, Jeffrey Prince said “Invest NI’s support has brought tangible benefits to our business and has been invaluable over the last few years in helping us to win a second deal in UAE.
“Our visit to Arab Health and the follow-up visit helped us to build on the contacts we made at last year’s Arab Health Exhibition and gave us the opportunity to identify a new distributor and help us secure additional business in this market.
“We are very excited by the business opportunities, particularly in Saudi Arabia and our next steps will be to develop the business base we have created to enhance our market position and generate additional sales.”
