Modena / Adelaide, May 25th, 2022 – OrthoSpineNews –
Tsunami Medical Srl and Additive Surgical Pty Ltd today announced a strategic alliance with regards to both manufacturing and sales of 3D printed Spinal implant technology in Australia and New Zealand.
This successful alliance started 18 months ago with a question which was as simple as meaningful: “what is needed to become successful, introducing innovative technology into the ANZ markets?” And so was the answer: “Make sure you offer proven innovative technology and have it being manufactured in Australia for several reasons”.
“We’ve used all of 2021 and 2022 till today to establish an Australian team and manufacturing site following local needs and register products with TGA and have these Prosthesis listed”, says Additive’s CEO, Mr. Gibran Maher.
Peter Witke, Tsunami Medical’s CCO: “At Tsunami Medical we feel excited about sharing our intellectual property and experience, having Additive Surgical to manufacture and sell our clinically proven 3D printed technology; not as a foreign subsidiary of Tsunami, but as an independent company in Australia instead”.
Additive’s CEO concludes: “apart from contributing to Australia’s local economy and keeping both logistic and support mechanisms as local as possible, we also feel grateful about sharing the companies’ mutual core values of contributing to maintaining and restoring people’s health”.
