Medical sector deals put Sedgefield’s Kromek Group in good health

A scanning equipment firm has secured medical sector deals worth more than £850,000.

Kromek Group is sending imaging apparatus to three customers.

Bosses say the orders include £456,000 and £166,000 agreements with “long-term” clients.

The tie-ups further bolster the Sedgefield-based business’ reputation in the healthcare market, with its technology long used to support the diagnosis and treatment of conditions such as osteoporosis.

Dr Arnab Basu, Kromek Group chief executive [pictured, above], said: “Receiving these orders from long-term customers in the medical imaging market highlights the regular, repeat nature of business in the advanced imaging segment, which is a real strength for us.

“We are continuing to receive heightened interest in our advanced detectors.”

As well as working across the healthcare sector, the NETPark-based company is known for wearable nuclear radiation detector equipment.

Known as D3S, it is used by first responders, armed forces and border security services to identify threats such as ‘dirty bombs’.
