B Medical Systems took part in the official economic mission of the Grand Duchy in Morocco between 23rd and 26th September 2019. This high-level event offered Luc Provost, CEO, an ideal opportunity to promote innovative and diversified medical solutions “100% made in Luxembourg” – intended to improve access to safe quality health care for all – in a country where population and region equity is a priority.
Lead by Vice Prime Minister and Economy Minister, Etienne Schneider, and presided by Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume, the economic mission in Morocco focused on an agenda rich in strategic meetings and discussions. M. Provost, more particularly, had the opportunity to talk to key national health players. The business meetings at the Ministry of Health, the Pasteur Institute, the National Blood Transfusion Centre, and hospitals in Rabat and Casablanca opened up promising partnership prospects – beneficial for both Luxembourg and Morocco.
B Medical Systems has been a Luxembourgish economic actor for 40 years. Today, its expertise is recognized at international level. No less than 130 countries have adopted its technologies. Its entire portfolio of medical devices is designed and manufactured in the North of Luxembourg. Its headquarters in Hosingen counts more than 250 staff. Concretely, B Medical Systems offers a hundred of cooling transport and storage solutions. The portfolio helps maintain the integrity of life-saving materials, such as blood or vaccines, from the manufacturer or the donor to the patients.
“In the past 20 years, our medical equipment saved more than 350 million children worldwide. No matter their background, location or gender, every child, every woman and every man has the right to quality health care. In a way, our innovative and robust technologies help reduce disparities in health care”, said M. Provost.
The company is particularly well known in the vaccine cold chain equipment industry for its medical refrigerators suitable for the toughest climatic and logistical conditions. While some operate through solar energy, others withstand the extreme voltage fluctuations that affect many countries worldwide. These innovations protect life-saving vaccines. Consequently, they also have the power to protect the most remote communities in the world by giving them access to efficient and effective vaccines.
“It was an honor for me to join the delegation from Luxembourg. I would like to thank the Chamber of Commerce for its support and this remarkable opportunity to embark on a new path to the African continent”, concluded M. Provost.
