Distribution agreements signed for the UK

  • Direct distribution in Scotland

  • Indirect distribution in England and Wales



Éragny-sur-Oise, Fleurieux-sur-l'Arbresle, May 3rd, 2023 at 8:30 a.m. CET - Safe (FR001400F1V2 - ALSAF), a company specializing in the design, manufacture and marketing of ready-to-use technologies for back surgery, particularly safe for spinal fractures treated in emergency (the "Company") announces strategic sales agreement for the United Kingdom area.

Since acquiring its distributor in 2018, Safe Orthopaedics has a direct sales force and is seeing long-term customer adoption in Scotland.

Today, the company announces a dual distribution agreement in the United Kingdom. In Scotland, the Safe Orthopaedics sales team is now strengthened by local agents to provide enhanced sales support to existing customers and to approach new surgery centers.

In England and Wales, distribution will be carried out indirectly. Contrary to England, Safe Orthopaedics had never initiated a commercial approach in Wales. These direct and indirect distributions are contracted with the same player, to facilitate daily interactions with the Safe Orthopaedics sales force.

Pierre Dumouchel, Chairman of Safe Group, said: " Our presence in the UK for several years now has prompted us to set up a hybrid organization that takes into account the local specificities and will enable us to maintain double-digit growth in the region. The reinforcement of our commercial resources in the UK aims to support an already significant growth of 19% in 2022 and +25% in Q1 2023 and to maximize the commercial contribution”.
