Hugo Technology sees year-on-year growth
19 April 2013
Despite continuing uncertainty within the UK economy, medical
technology repair and maintenance firm, Hugo Technology, has
continued to go from strength-strength during 2012, building on its
success of 2011.
The Midlands-based company employs over 40 people across the UK,
servicing medical devices and equipment for original equipment
manufacturers (OEMs) both at home and across Europe.
The business has seen its turnover increased by 15% to £2.1
million, up from £1.8 million in 2011 with several new contracts
already secured in 2013. A key element of its success is through
working in partnership with its clients during the past 12 months to
either renew or extend existing contracts.
This has led to an increase in staff to ensure it continues to
deliver a world-class service, including an acute renal engineer and
a respiratory expert.
Hugo has also added a quality controller to its team to ensure
that the global OEM client base, including Philips and Nutricia,
continues to rely on its world-class service standards both to ISO
9001 and ISO 13485. Warwick Oakey, joint managing director at Hugo
Technology, says: “Medical Technology is continuing to grow with
pace and with it is the need for talented specialists that can
service equipment to the highest levels.
“There have certainly been challenges in 2012, especially
ensuring we had the engineers in place once a new contract had been
“Continued growth has also led to investment in a new
facility which represents our aspirations and reflects our presence
in the marketplace which is continually growing,” says Warwick.
