Words from the CEO
CEO Communication Summer 2017
Kibion contributes to the future gastro health care
Today Kibion has representation in over 60 countries, mainly in the Middle East and EU, and the ambition and strategy in place for additional global expansion and growth.
The acquisition last October, by the French company Mayoly Spindler, helps strengthening our position globally and generates outstanding synergies in the gastro field where Mayoly Spindler already has a strong position.
Our new strategy has paid off Kibion has increased the focus on the company’s short- and long term strategy and challenging commercial goals. So far, this work has paid off and resulted in growing sales in 2016 by 39% compared to 2015.
Another proof point of the successful strategy work is that Kibion was honored with the Swecare Export Award 2017 in April. This award is designed to encourage and showcase thriving companies, highlighting examples of successful export enterprise. In addition to rewarding creativity and innovation, the prize also recognizes achievements in developing new and effective initiatives for internationalization within any commercial aspect of the Swedish healthcare sector. At the award giving ceremony, the jury announced that Kibion was given the prize for the contribution to future health care that will be dramatically different to what we know today.
This public acknowledgement is something that we are extremely proud of. It inspires us to continue our effort to commercialize the company’s innovative analytical instruments and breath tests in several new geographic markets worldwide. This is important to us since we are committed to live our vision “To be first in mind, first in choice”.
By living our vision, we bring value – not only to our distributors providing the end users with our instruments and diagnostic Urea Breath Tests – but also to the many patients who will benefit from Kibion’s user-friendly breath tests.
Thank you for your attention and I wish you all a great summer.
