A Culture for Innovation


Kimal's innovation journey started in 1964 when Kimal began distributing innovative products for well-known US medical companies. In fact, Kimal was responsible for launching some of the 'healthcare firsts' in the UK, including: one of the first heart pacemakers; the world's first hollow fibre dialyser; the first US coronary angioplasty balloon technology; and the first coronary stent.

Today, Kimal's innovation programme, led by the Company's Research & Development team, is busier than ever. Having developed and launched the first closed system central venous catheter in the world, to the first closed system acute renal catheter, both designed to reduce the risks associated with traditional technology; the patient continues to remain at the forefront of Kimal's innovation activities.


Kimal and the Environment


Kimal recognises that some of its activities have an impact on the environment, primarily due to packaging, water, energy usage and CO2 emissions.  The Company seeks to minimise this impact as far as possible.

Kimal has implemented an ISO14001:2015 certified Environmental Management System, and the Company continually strives to reduce its impact on the environment.

Kimal's Environmental Policy includes a commitment to continual improvement and prevention of pollution to protect the environment. This is achieved by setting achievable objectives, as well as a commitment to meet or exceed relevant environmental legislation, regulations and other requirements.

Kimal's Research & Development team are continually reviewing the Company's products, looking for ways in which to reduce Kimal's carbon footprint. Successful initiatives include investment in manufacturing a new and improved Needle Containment Device, removing 2.5 tonnes of plastic waste from Kimal's supply chain each year.
