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