- Exclusive Distribution Agreement for Hemostatic Sponge stypro(R)
- Extensive Access to German Hospital Market
Kleinostheim, 26 June 2018 - curasan AG, Germany, a leading specialist for medical products in the field of orthobiologics, has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with P.J. Dahlhausen & Co. GmbH.
Starting beginning of July the company with headquarters in Cologne, Germany, is going to include curasan's hemostatic product stypro(R) in their sales portfolio and, as a first step, place it on the German market.
"This cooperation with Dahlhausen underlines our strategy to continuously shift local sales activities at the point of sales, especially in hospitals, to specialists on site", explains Michael Schlenk, CEO of curasan AG. "With Dahlhausen we found a partner who is exceptionally well established in the hospital market and who can ensure a high presence at our target groups with more than 40 people in his hospital sales force."
"As one of the leading full-range suppliers of clinical accessories for hospitals throughout Germany we are increasingly extending our product line also for the orthopedics and traumatology sector", says Ulrich Dahlhausen, General Manager of the family business. "Therefore, the hemostatic product stypro(R) is an ideal supplement for our portfolio."
stypro(R) is a highly porous sponge made of porcine gelatin which supports the blood clotting process in a physiological way.
As P.J. Dahlhausen & Co. GmbH is globally active, the two companies will consider at a later point if the cooperation can be extended to other markets as well.
