(Muensingen/Switzerland, September 1st, 2009) On June 26, 2009 the share capital of Schaerer Medial AG was increased to 3 million Swiss francs. With this step the investor, who took over the company in June 2008 and subsequently successfully restructured it, has again shown his confidence in the performance and capability of the Swiss traditional company. After several years of economic difficulty an investor for the Schaerer Medical AG was found about a year ago. He capitalised the company and successfully restructured it. At the same time the product development and quality assurance have been intensified.
The success of these measures is clearly visible today: Since 12 months Schaerer Medical has been recording a steady growth. The number of employees has risen significantly in this period; further hiring of personnel is planned. In June 2009, Schaerer Medical launched the innovative extension system Schaerer MIS-Extension setting a new standard for minimal invasive hip surgery. Today, another new product is about to be launched: The new Schaerer Arcus is a universal mobile operating table with standard heavyweight functionality. This makes the operating table unique in its class. The new Schaerer Arcus can be ordered as of now and will be deliverable in September 2009.
Thanks to the financial security, today Schaerer Medical is able to invest into the development of innovative products. Thus the company takes its place at the global forefront of medical technology again.
Schaerer Medical will be at MEDICA 2009 (November 18 – 21, 2009 in Dusseldorf); in Hall 13 / Booth A32.
Journalists are cordially invited to visit us.
