Prism Medical UK to Expand Operations in Rhyl and Bridgend Creating 50 New Jobs
Prism Medical UK is a leading manufacturer and provider of specialist equipment for handling and moving patients with manufacturing sites in Kinmel Bay near Rhyl and Bridgend. Earlier this year it acquired Mackworth Healthcare in Bridgend which operates in the same market specialising in developing, manufacturing and supplying slings, hoists and shower chairs.
The company, which has also acquired a number of businesses in the UK, had considered consolidating operations at existing sites with spare capacity to increase efficiencies and savings. A funding support package of £363,000 from the Welsh Government has secured both sites with Prism Medical UK planning to expand both facilities which will safeguard 135 jobs and create fifty new jobs in total – 21 in Bridgend and 29 in Kinmel Bay.
