‘In­no­va­tive’ O’Flynn Med­i­cal plans fur­ther growth from Mill­street

Irish Examiner - - Finance -

O’Flynn Med­i­cal is one of north Co Cork’s indige­nous busi­ness sto­ries, hav­ing es­tab­lished it­self as a prom­i­nent player in the med­i­cal sup­plies mar­ket.

Hav­ing started with two em­ploy­ees in 2000, the firm now em­ploys al­most 30 peo­ple, and it has plans to grow even more this year and in fu­ture years.

Those peo­ple work across mul­ti­ple dis­ci­plines.

Based in the north Cork town of Mill­street, O’Flynn Med­i­cal sells, rents, ser­vices, and de­con­tam­i­nates a wide range of med­i­cal equip­ment.

It is now one of Ire­land’s lead­ing sup­pli­ers of med­i­cal equip­ment, sup­ply­ing hos­pi­tals, care fa­cil­i­ties, and pri­vate homes.

From its roots in Mill­street, it now has op­er­a­tions across Ire­land and the UK.

O’Flynn Med­i­cal says it is go­ing from strength to strength.

The firm says it is con­stantly in­no­vat­ing, aim­ing to be a leader in its field for med­i­cal sup­ply pro­duc­ers.

A ma­jor prod­uct of­fer­ing of the firm is the ScrubEx, an au­to­mated tex­tile man­age­ment prod­uct that of­fers an ef­fec­tive “scrubs man­age­ment” sys­tem that helps cut the costs for busi­nesses.

It also op­er­ates a pur­pose-built de­con­tam­i­na­tion fa­cil­ity where goods are fully cleaned, tested, and packed.

The firm has also re­cently in­stalled what it de­scribes as a new, in­no­va­tive whole room dis­in­fec­tion sys­tem.

As well as Mill­street, the firm has bases in Dublin, Clon­mel, Tralee, and Gal­way, and sells across Ire­land and into Bri­tain.

The firm is cur­rently de­vel­op­ing a new web­site that will help it re­spond to cus­tomers im­me­di­ately.

It will also be able to ex­e­cute prod­uct pro­fil­ing, as well as on­line pur­chas­ing and or­der­ing.

The com­pany re­cently won a HSE ten­der to sup­ply prod­ucts to the North-West.

Cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity in deal­ing with the lo­cal com­mu­nity forms a big part of O’Flynn Med­i­cal’s ethos, it says.

It says it en­gages with schools’ projects and sup­ports ini­tia­tives such as the Tidy Towns com­pe­ti­tion.

It also of­fers work ex­pe­ri­ence and spon­sors St Vin­cent de Paul, and sup­ports the St Fin­barr’s Hos­pi­tal Gar­den Party, the Friends of St Luke’s An­nual De­men­tia Con­fer­ence, Cork Stroke Re­cov­ery and Re­hab con­fer­ence, and Cork Si­mon.

It has sent equip­ment to hos­pi­tals in Moldova and has as­sisted in con­struct­ing a re­treat cen­tre for priests in Zam­bia.

For the team, be­ing a fi­nal­ist in the SME cat­e­gory of the Cork Com­pany of the Year Awards is won­der­ful recog­ni­tion of the ef­forts they have made over the years to put O’Flynn Med­i­cal in such a po­si­tion, said manag­ing di­rec­tor Tadhg O’Flynn.

“I’m de­lighted that the team at O’Flynn Med­i­cal is get­ting the recog­ni­tion that it de­serves. They are ex­cep­tional,” he said.
