Medical device contract for Menlo

Atrium Medical, a supplier of radiology and cardiology devices, has appointed Menlo Worldwide Logistics to handle its product distribution in Europe.

The contract will cover the supply of warehousing and transport management services throughout Europe and will be operated from Menlo’s Eersel, Netherlands multi-client facility.

Menlo already provides supply chain management services to other divisions of Atrium Medical’s parent company Getinge Group and part of Menlo’s remit in Europe is to integrate Atrium Medical’s supply chain with that of other products in the Maquet Cardiovascular division that it currently manages.

Atrium Medical’s logistics director, Pete Diaz said: “The recent acquisition of Atrium Medical by the Getinge Group gave us the opportunity to economise in certain areas of our operation. Various logistical aspects of our European supply chain were candidates for such a review. We have been impressed by how Menlo handles, on a global scale, the requirements of other divisions in the Group as well as the flexible approach Menlo takes to changes in supply chain dynamics.”
