The UK’s leading trade supplier and manufacturer of first aid and medical supplies has set its sights on a £50 million turnover by 2025 after experiencing massive growth in the past 12 months. 

Reliance Medical grew its turnover by more than £10 million in 2023 and expanded globally over the year. 

That included the Talke-based company opening an office and warehouse in Sydney, Australia and a European distribution base in Hungary. 

Pre-hospital trauma has been a key area of investment including the development of a new range featuring bleed control products and heavy duty, tactical first aid bags for emergency medical professionals, police and the military.  

The company also has a proud record supporting international humanitarian efforts – last year it manufactured and supplied more than 50,000 specialist personal issue first aid kits to support those caught up in the conflict in Ukraine. 

Last year Reliance Medical broke world records by providing 20,000 Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) to public places in the UK and this year it is launching a revolutionary AED cabinet that can automatically heat or cool the AED to ensure its optimum operating temperature whatever the weather or climate. 

In 2022 the company launched Aura3, an industry first flagship range of 100% recycled and recyclable first aid kit boxes as part of a strategy to reduce and eventually remove virgin plastics from products. 

Reliance is also in the running for the Staffordshire University Business Awards in the Growth and Business of the Year categories. 

It follows the company being shortlisted and highly commended in last year’s awards.  

Thomas Pear, Managing Director Reliance Medical, said: “Reliance Medical Ltd is a world-leading manufacturer and trade distributor of the highest quality surgical dressings, healthcare products, medical equipment and first aid supplies. 

“Since last year Reliance has expanded into new markets, product categories and territories.” 

He added: “Last year we were immensely proud to be shortlisted along with two other local companies in the Staffordshire University Business Awards in the Growth and Business of the Year categories and we are delighted to take part again in 2024.”
