Dear Customers & Distributors
Summer is over and we are back to business. I hope that you had occasion to have a nice summer vacation despite the restrictions and other difficulties.
In the last months, our priority has been to improve and optimize our production. Therefore, I am proud to announce that we have eliminated our back orders and our on-time delivery % is now at an all-time high with 98%.
Furthermore I am pleased to announce that we as of the 1st of September have strengthen our sales team further with 2 new Area Managers in Copenhagen (Jacob Øhrgaard & Søren Rasmussen) and by the 15th of September with 1 overseas Area Manager based in USA (Fernando Lopez).
This will enable us to give an even better service and have a closer dialogue with you our partners. Our focus will be to develop our Diabetes & Suture business considerably in the years ahead and we aim to close many exiting new projects in the coming months.
Søren will focus mainly on Suture Product line while Jacob and Fernando will focus on our Diabetes Products, which respectively are made at our own CTI group factories in Central Europe.
You are welcome to contact the new team members on:
Jacob Øhrgaard: firstname.lastname@example.org

This fall we also look forward to introducing our new and upgraded packing design for our 3 main products from our Slovak Factory: Pen Needles, Insulin Syringes and Blood Collection Needles.
Vitrex is on the forefront with new solutions. Before the end of September, we will launch a Vitrex Surgical Mask.
During the present Covid-19 pandemic Vitrex Medical stock levels are under pressure and sometimes critical. Therefore, I recommend you to take the opportunity to speak to your Area Manager for you to coordinate, forecast and specially to place new orders in time so you are the one getting priority.
Please find the New Vitrex Insight, with the latest news and updates from us.
We look forward to hearing from you and maybe see you virtually soon again.

EASD 2020 – Diabetes Congress
Due to the worlds’ circumstances with COVID-19 pandemic the EASD congress was made into a virtual congress with virtual exhibition halls and avatars, virtual meetings and virtual lectures. From the 21st-25th of September we attended this new experience of being an exhibitor at a virtual congress. We had a company profile with information about our diabetes range and it was possible to contact us directly with any kind of request. We Had a great experience and were happy to show our product range for the attendees.
Despite the circumstances we chose to have a booth for Medica 2020 to meet with new and current customers and partners attending. However, Medica recently announced, that they have cancelled the physical exhibition and they will instead have it virtually. We will therefore attend as an exhibitor in a virtual aspect to present some of our newly added products and have virtual meetings with our customers. We hope, that you will come by our company page and see our news and feel free to book a virtual meeting with your area sales manager from Vitrex during Medica or at any other time.
