Medtech demonstrated solid growth for the quarter, with the margin at the upper end of the historical range of 8-10%, despite the negative impact from our eye surgery business.
In eye surgery, growth continues, but margins remain low. The sales organisation has been strengthened in key markets to adapt to an updated and more advanced product portfolio. Those products that were previously cancelled because of delivery problems and terminated supplier contracts are now being replaced by new products. The suppliers who have encountered issues in their internal processes are now launching updated versions of their products to address this. A training program for sales combined with development of applied sales methods have been implemented during the quarter.
High activity in planned surgery continues across Europe, driving growth for high margin products in specialised orthopaedic surgery and laparoscopy, as well as for general surgery products. The companies are developing well and are actively working to develop the portfolio, both individually and in co-operation with other companies within AddLife. During the quarter, a new collaboration entered into force that includes a portfolio of products in areas such as cancer therapy and covers several countries in Europe.
In the home care market segment, there is a great demand for products that enable health care and social services at home, and we see a positive sales trend in this area.
