The systematic strengthening of MMM Group’s position in France and its narrower interconnection with its subsidiary Schaerer Mayfield France logically resulted in this year’s joint participation at the largest French international health technologies and services exhibition –HOPITAL EXPO-INTERMEDICA 2010. Its 23rd event was held in Paris on 18 - 21 May 2010. This leading European healthcare exhibition brought together 750 exhibitors, of which about 100 were foreign exhibitors. Almost 26,000 visitors passed through the exhibition gates. Most of them came from all corners of France, but many arrived having traveled from adjoining European countries and from French-speaking territories in Africa.
Exhibitors mostly focused on information technology in healthcare, primarily risk management software and healthcare facility systematic management software (ISO 9001). Traditionally, there was also a lot of healthcare equipment to be seen, including equipment manufactured in Brno. The Schaerer Mayfield France stand presented the UNISTERI HP 636-1 sterilizer, the STERICELL 55 hot-air sterilizer and a STERIVAP HP sterilizer promotion panel. Apart from our equipment, the stand also exhibited a SELECTOMAT PL steam sterilizer and a STERIPACK heat sealer by MMM GmbH. Schaerer Mayfield France put on display its own sterilization process documentation software, operating tables by Schaerer Mayfield and equipment for central sterilization material transport automation. Notwithstanding MMM Group’s impressive exposition, not one of our greatest international rivals were absent from the exhibition. They presented their sterilization equipment in no less an impressive way. It is obvious that rivalry in the sterilization sector is on the increase and if we want to maintain and strengthen our good position on the international market we need to continue to spread our sales to new markets and offer suitable and good quality sterilizers enhanced with technologies used in central sterilization units.
