2008 saw the arrival of a new company to support the needs of Chronic Dialysis treatment in Ireland. That company is the result of a joint venture between PEI and B Braun; a partnership which brings with it decades of expertise, both of value added distribution and differentiated service solutions, but also innovative research and development and high quality manufacturing processes. That company’s name is B Braun Avitum Ireland (BBAVI).
BBAVI is the result of the coming together of two likeminded and progressive medical device companies. Its objective is to bring new choice to the Irish renal care clinician, in terms of haemodialysis machines, consumables and exceptional customer support.
PEI is well known as one of Ireland’s leading sales, marketing and distribution companies. With 50 years experience, PEI has grown to be one of the largest independent, privately owned companies, serving the Irish medical device sector. Deriving from its experience of renal product supply, it has also brought patient care models to the fore, through its “Wellstone” Clinic offering. Wellstone, established in 2006, has already established itself as a key dialysis provider in Ireland, with clinics in Kilkenny and Galway.
B Braun is well known as one of the world’s largest privately owned companies. It supplies the global healthcare market with products for anesthesia, intensive care medicine, cardiology, extra corporeal blood treatment and surgery, as well as services for hospitals, general practitioners and the homecare sector. Through extensive new product development, the company contributes with innovative products and services towards optimizing working procedures in hospitals and medical practices all over the world and improving safety – for patients, doctors and nursing staff. With 35,000 employees in 50 countries, B. Braun is of the world’s leading medical device manufacturers.
B Braun Avitum Ireland (BBAVI) is operating from Ballymount in Dublin and has already built up a professional team with years of renal experience. This team includes, among others, Brian Wynne, Sales Manager; Aileen Roussell, Clinical Manager and Fiona Duggan, Clinical Sales Specialist.
