“I have missed the healthcare maket,” said Abraham, “and I wanted a position where I could fully utilise my sales strengths and market knowledge and experience.

“Meiko manufactures very high quality and cleverly designed solutions and they are perfect for the growing market in reusable sluiceroom systems in the UK.”

Bill Downie commented on the appointment: “Jim has a strong background in the care sector, together with a proven track record of excellent customer service.

“Every sluice room is different and Meiko takes great pride in offering a personal one-one service, working with its customers to develop an ergonomic sluice room design that meets the most stringent demands of cost-effectiveness, optimization of work processes, safety in the work-place and hygiene.”
