Billy Cargill, Frank-Keane and Ross Warner meet Group CEO of Seha, Dr Tarek Fathey at DWTC

ENNIS-based business Vitalograph, which has a strong presence in the healthcare sector in the Middle East, plans to create a new base in Limerick.
The company also plans to increase its workforce in Ennis to meet the growing demand for its respiratory diagnostic products and services.
Vitalograph CEO Frank Keane said: “Vitalograph is in the enviable position of needing to expand to cope with the growing demand for our products and services.
“We have an extremely dedicated workforce in Ennis, many of whom have been with us for more than a decade, and we are looking forward to growing our local team significantly in the coming months, bringing a range of career opportunities to suit all levels of experience and qualifications.”
Based in Ennis since 1974, Vitalograph is a global leader in the development and production of respiratory diagnostic devices. With exports to more than 110 countries worldwide, they are now growing their presence in the Gulf Region with new partnerships in Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Kuwait, and the UAE.
The company recently participated at Arab Health, a medical industry exhibition in the Middle East.
Speaking of the event, Mr Keane said: “The Gulf Region represents a real potential for our company as there is a high incidence of COPD and Asthma, which are two of the diseases that our diagnostic devices address. We have received superb support from the team at Enterprise Ireland whilst at Arab Health, and they introduced us to many potential partners which we are very excited about.”
As the world faces a renewed focus on respiratory-related healthcare issues post-Covid, demand for Vitalograph’s range of spirometry devices is on the increase.
The company recently received FDA approval for the ALPHA, a desktop spirometer.
This approval allows the ALPHA to be marketed throughout the United States and is expected to drive demand for all of the company’s spirometry products in the rapidly growing USA respiratory care market, where Vitalograph has had a presence since 1969.
