"By working with Euromed and their experienced, professional team, we will increase the pace of our European market expansion. Euromed is a leading provider of medical devices to both public and private hospitals and we are convinced that they have the competence and the resources needed to offer advanced solutions and drive Bactiguard's sales in Switzerland,” says Jonas Östregård, SVP Sales & Marketing at Bactiguard.

Therefore, we are very happy about this new partnership,” says Reinhold Eder, Member of the Board at Euromed.
