Symmetry Surgical, a subsidiary of Symmetry Medical Inc., has partnered with Orthopedia Neurocirugía Camara (ONC) in Mexico to expand its North American distribution net. Under terms of the agreement, ONC will be the exclusive Mexican distributor of Symmetry Surgical’s portfolio of surgical medical devices, which includes surgical instruments, orthopedic implants, and sterilization cases and trays.
ONC distributes surgical instruments used in spinal and neurosurgical procedures throughout Mexico. According to ONC officials, the company hopes to benefit from the agreement with Symmetry by expanding its own reach in the country.
“With the completion of our partnership with ONC, Symmetry Surgical can now offer our broad portfolio of industry-leading surgical instruments to clinicians and facilities in Mexico,” said Chris Huntingdon, chief operating officer at Symmetry Surgical. “ONC’s reputation has been built on their dedication to quality surgical instruments and improving patients’ lives, which aligns with Symmetry Surgical’s overarching values. We are excited to partner with ONC to drive growth our existing business throughout Mexico.”
Symmetry Medical is located in Warsaw, Ind. Symmetry Surgical markets several brands, including the product lines of Specialty Surgical Instrumentation, Olsen Medical and the recently acquired surgical instruments division Codman & Shurtleff Inc.
