Safe Orthopaedics expands distribution into Mexico and Chile


Safe Orthopaedics is expansion into the Latin American market under distribution agreements covering Mexico and Chile.

After securing regulatory marketing approvals in Australia and New Zealand in April, Safe Orthopaedics plans to continue expanding internationally.

Safe Orthopaedics’ products have just received marketing approval for the Chilean market, while an application is currently being reviewed in Mexico, with approval anticipated by the fourth quarter of 2016.

Safe Orthopaedics has entered into distribution agreements to commence the marketing of its products over the next few months. In Mexico, it has sealed an exclusive distribution agreement with Grupo Comercial Zanchet.

Fred Magnun, chief executive officer of Grupo Comercial Zanchet, comments, “In the course of our activities, we frequently see spinal surgeries having to be postponed or cancelled owing to issues arising from the just-in-time management of conventional reusable instrument kits and sterilisation problems. The solution provided by Safe Orthopaedics, with its implant kits and single-use surgical instruments, will enable us to improve significantly the quality of service provided to surgeons.”
