Aesculap Receives Frost Sullivan Market Award

CENTER VALLEY, Pa - Officials at Aesculap, Inc are celebrating their latest award - the Frost & Sullivan 2002 Market Penetration Award for the U.S. disinfection and sterilization market.

The award is given annually to a company that demonstrates excellence in capturing market share within their industry.

"Hospitals and surgical centers in the United States have preferred sterilization wrap over sterilization containers for decades," says Dhiraj Ajmani, industry analyst with Frost & Sullivan. "Innovative and cost effective sterilization containers from market leader Aesculap, such as Sterilcontainer, coupled with its marketing strategies has impelled the end users to shift to containers."

Aesculap has been manufacturing surgical instruments for more than 135 years.

"We are very proud to receive this award from Frost & Sullivan in recognition of our ongoing commitment to provide hospitals and surgical centers with a reliable means of packaging instruments for sterilization," says Dirk Kuyper, COO of Aesculap. "The award validates not only the clinical value our products deliver, but also our reputation for innovation, quality and service to our customers."
