The Biomedical Scientist Live 2021 by The Institute of Biomedical Science

publication date: Nov 23, 2021
author/source: Medical Wire


MWE are delighted to announce ourselves as the headline sponsor for The Biomedical Scientist Live 2021. The virtual event, brought to you by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS), will be delivered on the 24th–25th November 2021.

MWE will be presenting their story and sharing their views on how the industry has changed over the last two years and will also be discussing what the future of medical devices will look like.


Building a Brighter Future, while Making the Present Count

Established for over 70 years, Medical Wire (MWE) began as a family run manufacturer of medical devices in the UK. Today, we have grown into a global enterprise supporting organisations and governments worldwide in industries including food, forensics, clinical, pharmaceutical, laboratories, and even veterinary. Our global presence in over 80+ countries has meant that we have had the opportunity to invest in our people, equipment, and the business. Our aim over the years has been to repatriate manufacturing skills and resources, reducing reliance from overseas.


Our Customers

Despite the growth, our customers have always been at the heart of the business and supporting their needs has been our main priority. Every product innovation over the last 70 years has been driven by our efforts to deliver good quality, safe and reliable solutions to our customers. As part of our service provision, we deliver bespoke training programmes to organisations and clinicians worldwide, helping them understand changing industry norms within medical devices and how to apply them.


The Pandemic

The pandemic has been challenging for people, businesses and communities, globally.

As COVID-19 spread, there was a global shortage of swabs, which meant that the UK government needed support in delivering COVID-19 testing. COVID-19 became the focus of hospitals, laboratories and businesses. Medical Wire decided to reinvest resources into supporting the nation in this crisis, becoming the biggest swab provider in the UK.

We invested in new production capacity, trained our teams, and built two new production sites, to meet this demand. It wasn’t always smooth sailing as we had to ensure our employees were safe and protected. We also had to make sure that our customers in laboratories and hospitals were looked after, while fulfilling the nation’s needs.


The Future

Over the last few years Medical Wire has gone from strength to strength. We are now leading the market by providing reliable, safe, and good quality medical devices that meet manufacturing standards. We have developed robust lean processes to ensure we have greater capacity to meet supply-chain demand in the UK and globally. We will continue supporting the community of Wiltshire by providing job opportunities, leadership training, and aid to charities like the Wilshire Air Ambulance and Julia’s House, a children’s hospice. We recently supported Wiltshire Air Ambulance in their ‘24 miles in 24 hours’ challenge set up to raise funds for blood products used in emergencies.

In our presentation you will not just hear our story, but also get a better understanding of how the industry has changed over the last two years. We will also discuss the provision of medical devices and what that would look like in the future.
