Trivitron Healthcare, a medical device manufacturing company, is scouting for technology collaborators for its new X-ray making unit, according to a top company official.
Talking to The Hindu, G.S.K. Velu, Trivitron Group Founder and Managing Director, said: “Right now, we are talking to a few firms from the US, Europe and Japan seeking technology to manufacture Cathlab, CTMR and digital mammography equipment in India.
We already have an ongoing collaboration with IMD Group of Italy to make X-ray equipment and accessories in Mumbai under the ‘Kiran’ brand name. IMD Group is supplying technology for our C-arm equipment.”
Currently, Trivitron is in the process of setting up its X-ray digital imaging division at its medical technology park in Sriperumbudur at an investment of Rs.100 crore. The facility will be ready in 18 months.
“The new project will come up in three towers to make radiology, diagnostics, renal care and operating room equipment among others. It is going to be the first-of-its-kind company to produce hi-end digital radiology devices. Initially, we plan to make 500 units of digital X-ray and digital mammography units and this will increase to 2,000 units by the third year. We are also looking at the possibility of carrying out contract manufacturing for others,” he said.
As Africa, CIS, Latin America, South East Asian countries are scouting for cost-effective devices, Trivitron Healthcare plans to enter these markets soon.
Trivitron has invested over Rs.250 crore in three facilities in Medical Tech Park
