The first trip of the 18-month programme organised by the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FOC), its trade investment body (UKTI) and the UK’s medical technology industry body, the Association of British Healthcare Industries (ABHI), to Texas proved to be a great success. Our CEO, Shah Fayyaz, had the following to say:

“We have been selling to the USA for a number of years however the Texas mission gave us a new insight on the markets in the US and specifically Texas.

The mission provided opportunities to engage with a number of major hospitals, research institutes and purchasing organisations as well as excellent opportunities to network with trade and industry support. With 21 hospitals in the Texas Medical Centre in Houston serving over 8 million patients a year, Texas has huge opportunities for the Medtec industry.

Following the mission, Timesco have set Texas as a major part of our US strategy and I would encourage anyone serious about the USA to consider Texas and any future ABHI missions to this region.”
