Shvabe Holding received a certificate of free sale at the Russian Export Center (REC). The document will provide for delivery of the domestic medical equipment for resuscitation and intensive care of newborns to Thai hospitals.

The certificate of free sale was issued to Ural Optical and Mechanical Plant (UOMZ), an enterprise of Shvabe Holding. The certificate confirms compliance of the neonatal, resuscitation and diagnostic equipment manufactured at the plant with the international quality and safety standards. The certificate gives UOMZ the right to register domestic products in Thailand, as well as to participate in tenders for supply of medical equipment to public clinics.

"In September of the previous year within the framework of Medical Fair Thailand the Holding established good partnership relations with the organizations of the Kingdom. The certificate confirms circulation of our equipment in the country and opens broad opportunities for development of foreign trade. It became the first step on the way to introduction of Shvabe medical equipment to the market of Thailand, a new region on the map of the product sales. By the end of 2018, we are planning to register here the medical products which are in high demand on the territory of the country," said Ivan Ozhgikhin, Deputy General Director of Shvabe.

UOMZ is preparing to register in Thailand medical equipment, which is now used for resuscitation, intensive care and nursing of newborns, including the ones with extremely low body weight, in more than 700 medical institutions in Russia and in clinics of more than 50 countries.

Medical equipment is a priority in the civilian segment of professional equipment of the Holding, it has the largest export potential and covers more than 200 items that make 28% of exports in terms of revenue. The certificate of free sale has become the next stage in interaction of Shvabe and the REC. In mid-2017, the parties entered into a partnership agreement aimed at developing exports of high-tech products. The largest volume of exports is planned to go to the countries of the Asia-Pacific region (APR).
