Victorian Minister for Economic Growth, Tim Pallas, today announced Medsalv was finalising site selection for the manufacturing and R&D facility, which will introduce new sustainable remanufacturing capabilities to the Australian healthcare ecosystem.
The company’s product recycling portfolio includes patient transfer mattresses, deep vein thrombosis prevention sleeves, blood pressure cuffs and tourniquets.
The Minister said Medsalv addresses the growing demand for eco-friendly healthcare solutions to reduce reliance on overseas products, resulting in a more robust supply chain and positive environmental outcomes.
“Attracting Medsalv to set up operations in Victoria is a win for our health system, jobs and sustainability,” he said.
