Turkish and Dutch Companies Plan to Launch Joint Production of Medical Devices
KAZAKH INVEST, R-Vent (Turkey) and Novomed BV Internationa (Netherlands) discussed the upcoming launch in Kazakhstan of the production of medical devices, namely, respiratory circuits of various modifications, virus-bacterial filters, masks used to supply oxygen or to supply respiratory and anesthetic-respiratory mixture to the patient.
It is planned that the project will be implemented in Astana. The commissioning of the project is scheduled for 2023, the amount of investment in the first stage will be more than $3 million.
During the meeting, Typhoon Onur, General Director of R-Vent, said that the Kazakh market is very interesting for the company due to increased demand within the country and the opportunity to enter nearby markets.
“We have advanced production technologies, export goods to major markets, including Europe and the United States, and are ready to apply our skills and train Kazakh specialists in the use of these technologies. We consider Kazakhstan as a hub in Central Asia with the possibility of exporting to the countries of Central Asia and in the near future to the countries of Europe,” Typhoon Onur said.
Alfiya Kulatayeva, Commercial Director of Novomed KZ LLP, a subsidiary of Novomed BV Internationa, noted that today, due to logistical difficulties, the delivery of the Turkish company's products takes about four months, which makes long-term planning difficult. In addition, the company's products are also supplied to other countries of Central Asia, in connection with which the opening of production will undoubtedly increase export volumes and speed up the receipt of products by Kazakh medical institutions.
In turn, Zhandos Temirgali, Deputy Chairman of the Management Board of KAZAKH INVEST, emphasized that the development of investment projects in healthcare, the production of medical devices and pharmaceuticals is one of the priority sectors of the economy of Kazakhstan. The state pays great attention to localization, including with a high content of Kazakh content. KAZAKH INVEST will continue to provide further support for the project, including in terms of obtaining state support measures.
