Afterthoughts on MEDICA 2017

SIMEON Medical’s booth at the world’s largest medical trade fair was a complete success

The response generated by our product innovations exceeded all expectations. In keeping with our motto of “user-friendly, hygienic, and wireless”, we unveiled
two brand-new wireless cameras for the first time ever: the Sim.CAM 4K Wireless and the Sim.CAM HD Wireless. This makes SIMEON the world’s only manufacturer supplying wireless 4K and HD technology for surgical environments that is easy to install, upgrade, or retrofit.

Our multi-functional, sterile my.GRIP handle generated a great deal of public interest as well, as did the mobile versions of our surgical and examination lights with removable batteries. Trade fair participants also got an exclusive first look at Sim.CARRY, our new modular ceiling-mounting supply units. With their wide range of accessories (infusion holders, trays, drawers, etc.) and easy installation solutions, they met with enthusiasm from booth visitors.

Trade fairs are hard work, and there’s nothing like slackening the reins after a long, productive day. This year’s booth party was guaranteed to be a good time once again. And word got around, too: a large number of trade fair visitors attended the get-together and enjoyed the perfect finish to a successful trade fair day.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our partners, visitors, and other interested parties, and we look forward to welcoming you to our booths at Arab Health in Dubai (Jan 29 - Feb 1, 2018) and at next year’s MEDICA in Düsseldorf.

G-MEA Training Center in Byblos, Lebanon

First SIMEON Medical product and service training in Byblos

After the foundation of our subsidiary in Beirut, we teamed up with the renowned organization G-MEA (General Medical Workshop Association Middle East & Africa) to take the opportunity of introducing dealers and customers in the region to our “Made in Germany” quality OR products. 13 participants from nine countries were taught the tips and tricks of day-to-day use of our products by
our Service Manager Frank Biehler, who traveled from our headquarters in Tuttlingen, Germany for the occasion.

During two days of training, the participants learned, amongst other things, how to correctly install the products and could then put their practical knowledge to use immediately. The participants can carry out independent on-site service updates in the clinics in the future. The G-MEA Training Center in Byblos proved itself as the ideal location to present our products and to train the dealers in the region without their having to travel extensively.

Arab Health 2017 follow-up

Innovations for a modern surgical field

"Over time, the Arab Health in Dubai has become the most important hub for innovative medical technology, alongside the MEDICA", states Dr. Markus Keussen, CEO of SIMEON Medical. "Health care in the Middle East places less of a focus on cost savings and a greater emphasis on the desire for innovative medical technology for the most modern care."

Our visitors were very enthusiastic about our new products in the areas of video integration, light cleanliness and light mobility, with which our innovative LED light and system solutions are being expanded.

The new 4K ULTRA HD camera with a resolution of 8,847,360 pixels (4096 x 2160) reveals details that were not previously visible with a full HD camera. The new mobile stand for SIMEON lights with battery allows for a flexible, mobile and comfortable use, in every place and at every time.

The lights by SIMEON Medical were also used at a 3D Medical Printing Workshop. In addition to the live demonstrations of 3D medical printing, and the presentation of body parts printed with a 3D printer, there was also a practical training session teaching operation methods for surgical interventions, especially in the area of pediatric surgery.

    SIMEON presents new OR-Light Product Family BusinessLine

    SIMEON presents its new product line BusinessLine during an international dealer event.

    With the BusinessLine, the medical light solution provider from Tuttlingen addresses primarily the so-called medium segment and opens up new markets. The new products will be presented to the general public for the first time at MEDICA in Düsseldorf from November 16-19 (Hall 13, stand D30).

    An important component of the BusinessLine is – as for all SIMEON lights – the SIMEON patented and market-leading reflector technology. BusinessLine OR lights are also produced from high-quality materials such as aluminum and glass, provide hygienically optimized surfaces, and offer the typical SIMEON light quality. Small, medium-sized, and large OR lights can be combined without any restrictions. With its product portfolio, SIMEON offers the perfect light for every OR situation and every user.


    The BusinessLine as well as the complete product portfolio of SIMEON is produced at the Tuttlingen facility and Made in Germany.


    SIMEON gets ready for the future

    Spectacular scenes at the premises of SIMEON Medical in Tuttlingen: Today, a new turning/milling machine of the Japanese company Mazak was delivered and lifted by crane from the street to the production hall. Simeon can reduce the processing time for several production steps considerably and thereby produce more in the same time in the future.


    SIMEON Medical charts double-digit turnover growth

    Expansion in international sales activities: new businesses in the USA and China

    SIMEON Medical, one of the top 3 manufacturers of LED lights for operation and examination rooms worldwide, is on the road to success. The Tuttlingen-based medical technology company recorded a record turnover of 27 million euros in 2014. This constitutes an 11.8 percent increase over the previous year. The initial figures for the ongoing year indicate that the positive development will continue.

    SIMEON’s LED operation and examination lights are made in Germany and meet the latest requirements in terms of quality, function, flexibility, hygiene and reliability. The company has been run under dual leadership since May of last year. Dr. Markus Keussen is in charge of marketing, sales, product management and service, while Tobias Lang handles controlling, production, research and development, quality and human resources.

    New businesses in the USA and China

    SIMEON’s quality products are also enjoying ever-greater demand on an international level. That’s why the company is continuing to expand its sales activities worldwide. And so it came to be that in March, SIMEON Medical USA LLC was founded in the town of Greenville, South Carolina. The American branch brought John Hester, a well-known US market expert, on board as the CEO. He has over 30 years of sales experience in the US medical technology sector. The market in the Far East is also becoming increasingly attractive for SIMEON. For that reason, the company will be establishing a subsidiary there in May, 2015: SIMEON Medical Products (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. In addition to the two new companies, SIMEON already has a worldwide presence on more than 80 markets thanks to its sales network.


    Girls’ Day 2015 at SIMEON Medical: Great carrier opportunities for girls in medical technology

    A large number of female students from the region took advantage of Girls’ Day on 23.04.15 for its first carrier step in medical technology.

    Like in the last five years, the Tuttlingen medical technology company SIMEON Medical invited girls and young women for a day-long tour of its headquarters. SIMEON is one of the top 3 manufacturers of LED operation and examination lights in the world. After a tour of the company, the participants had a chance to learn about their career prospects in the industry in a meeting with SIMEON employees and try out individual work steps in various departments themselves. SIMEON offers apprenticeships for the positions of industrial clerk, cutting machine operator and industrial electrician.

We entertained over 100 guests – a great time was had by all. And we’ll be celebrating again also next year – maybe you will join us?
