MEDTECS International Corporation on Monday said it has tied up with existing supplier Mytrex Health Technologies to explore opportunities to co-locate production plants in Taiwan, the Philippines, the US and other regions.
This is to facilitate the vertical integration of personal protective equipment (PPE) production operations to ensure product quality and minimise supply chain disruption, PPE maker Medtecs said in a bourse filing.
Medtecs and Taiwan-listed Mytrex will also leverage each other's strengths and capabilities in the PPE supply chain to explore strategic partnerships to expand their presence in the international market.
Both parties entered into a partnership and cooperation on Dec 7. Medtecs said the agreement is in line with various government policies of localising supply chains to facilitate the indigenous production of PPE to swiftly cater to demand in their respective markets. [FULL STORY]
