sfm medical devices, a medium-sized med-tech company based in Wächtersbach, sees itself as responsible for providing support in the currently tense procurement situation for protective masks. At the end of March, a concept was developed in collaboration with the company's Medical Advisory Board Member, Dr. Haindl, medical technology expert from Wennigsen (Hanover area, Lower Saxony), to reprocess used protective masks.

sfm medical devices operates a large sterilization chamber at their site in Wächtersbach. In this facility, medical devices are sterilized by means of ethylene oxide (ETO) and can therefore be used on patients. The EO sterilization process is also suitable for killing enveloped viruses and thus the corona virus SARS-CoV-2/ COVID-19.

The BMG (Federal Ministry of Health) has asked the BfArM (Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices) to evaluate the ETO sterilisation of protective masks. The BfArM will recommend that ETO sterilisation be named as the 1st alternative for decontamination during emergency supply shortages of respiratory protective masks.

The BMG has initially limited the reprocessing measures (max. 6 months to build up own production capacities in Germany during this time).

sfm plans to organize a personalized collection of used MNS masks (surgical masks) but also FFP2 protective masks by the hospital, nursing service or doctor's practice. The masks will be double packed in so-called sterile bags by trained personnel in the facilities and then sent to sfm medical devices. There the sterilisation process takes place and within approx. 5 days the masks can be returned and reused by the staff.
sfm plans to offer this service FREE of charge until further notice and if capacity is available.

The District Administrator of the Main-Kinzig-Kreis, Mr. Thorsten Stolz, as well as the Mayor of Wächtersbach, Mr. Andreas Weiher, are involved in the initiative. Both have already contacted the Main-Kinzig clinics, nursing services and medical practices in order to actively help as district and local authorities to support the supply of protective masks in the way shown.

Interested clinics, nursing services or medical practices can request further information on the campaign from sfm medical devices via e-mail to steri[at]sfm[dot]de.
Under this address, sterilizations for the reprocessing of masks will also be registered and processed.

Further information can also be found on the homepage at www.sfm.de.

news-135 Wed, 18 Mar 2020 15:46:24 +0100 Managementstatement regarding SARS-CoV-2 /en/news/read/managementstatement-regarding-sars-cov-2.html Dear business partner,

sfm takes the growing concerns about the COVID 19 virus very seriously and is monitoring the outbreak and its potential impact on our business very closely. Our current focus lies on ensuring the safety of our personnel while continuing to deliver medical devices of the highest quality to our customers and their patients who rely on us.

At present, we have not yet had any significant impact on our daily business processes. The continuing supply of the necessary raw materials and supplies for our production, as well as the movement of goods between Wächtersbach and our subsidiary in Prague, is currently ensured.

We are daily monitoring the situation in all departments both in Germany and the Czech Republic. The following measures have been taken to protect our employees, customers and suppliers:

  • The already high standard of hygiene at sfm in Wächtersbach and safemed in Prague was intensified by taking additional measures, for example by providing additional disinfection stations at all entrances to the company buildings and increasing the cleaning frequency of the social areas.
  • The employees received additional instructions on how to behave (no shaking hands, social distancing, proper coughing and sneezing hygiene, etc.) for self-protection.
  • Food sales in our canteen were stopped and employees were instructed to avoid the canteen.
  • Meetings and seminars that are not indispensable were cancelled or will be held online.
  • All business trips and appointments with external visitors have been cancelled until further notice. - Exceptions to this (e.g. visits by the company doctor) can only be approved by the management.
  • All members of the administration are equipped with notebooks and mobile phones so that they can remote work from home if necessary.
  • The shift model in production has been adapted in such a way that employees do not encounter each other when shifts change.
  • In all administrative areas, employees work alternately from home as far as possible to ensure that the most important business processes are maintained.

We apologize if current inquiries cannot be answered in the usual fast way. We will do our utmost to ensure your punctual delivery.

We hope for your understanding and wish you all the best, especially health, in these turbulent times.

Best Regards from Wächtersbach
Ralf Blomeyer on behalf of the whole sfm group

I am Managing Director of our company, which in recent years has evolved from a manufacturer of precision mechanical needles into a manufacturer of complex medical devices made of plastics and metals. To cope with the globalization of our business, we have further developed our business structure and renamed the company to sfm medical devices GmbH. With great pride, we are celebrating our 60th company anniversary this year. Traditional values are important to us, because they form the basis for our current success. Therefore, one section of our newly designed website is dedicated to the important milestones in the company’s history.

 


What is so special about sfm?

Employees

As in every successful company, the employees are in the foreground with us. With a great sense of responsibility and effort, they ensure the quality of our products every day. Many of their colleagues, who have already completed their vocational training with us, remain with sfm until their well-earned retirement. In our present society oriented towards short-term success, this is no longer a common occurrence.

Corporate strategy

sfm medical devices GmbH does not have any specifically formulated "Vision", as it is known in other companies. Our corporate strategy is precisely and transparently formulated: We see ourselves as partner to the medical technology and pharmaceutical industry, we consistently focus on the OEM business, and we aspire to contribute towards our customers and partners becoming more successful in international markets. If together we succeed in improving the healthcare and well-being of the patients, we feel justified in what we do.

We do not rest on our successes but rather continually work to expand on them through sustainable investments in process development, in machines and buildings, and in the further training of our employees. We are supported in these efforts by our stakeholders, who have the long-term survival of the company in mind.

Market orientation

Due to the continuous increase in life expectancy and the associated increase in age-related diseases, the healthcare industry is a growth market. The challenges associated with the opportunities and risks have created a global competition in which only the best can survive. As with every market segment, medical technology is also subject to economic cycles, economic crises and specific market changes. As a small individual company, one is not able to stop these waves - one can, however, learn to "surf" them! Here we are benefited by the experience from the last 60 years and the direct and personal dialogue with our customers. 

Future

There is probably no secret recipe for economic success. We at sfm intend to continue with what made us strong: being a flexible, competent partner in the resolution of the individual tasks assigned by our customers. This automatically means the further development of our production processes and the creation of new products and services for medical technology and the pharmaceutical industry. Especially for medium-size companies such as sfm, the global competition, the associated continuously increasing cost pressures and the regulatory requirements, which are developing at a rapid pace, represent a special challenge. 

I extend my thanks to all of you who have taken the time to read these lines, and I hope to be able to welcome you personally at the next opportunity.

Sincerly yours,
Dr. Alexander Dziengel
