Forefront Medical Technology Secures 20% Stake in Arrow Medical Limited

SINGAPORE – Forefront Medical Technology recently acquired 20 percent of Arrow Medical Limited, a British medical contract manufacturer specializing in textiles, RF welding, silicon injection moulding and cleanroom assembly.

“We feel the transaction benefits our customer base in several ways. First, Arrow’s textile and RF welding capabilities broaden the portfolio of vertically integrated manufacturing capabilities we can provide. Second, we feel adding a UK manufacturing footprint enhances the support we can offer our European customer base. And finally, we see this as a good next step in more broadly supporting the manufacturing regionalization strategies of our global customer base,” said Walter Tarca, Forefront Medical Technology’s president.

“From Arrow Medical’s perspective, there are significant synergies in aligning with Forefront Medical Technology. Forefront’s strong frontend engineering capabilities combined with its breadth of manufacturing capabilities enable us to provide our customers with a much broader set of manufacturing and support options. Our companies are both customer-centric and focus on superior quality and optimizing production processes, ensuring a common culture and approach in the solutions we provide,” said Jolene Atkinson, Arrow Medical Limited’s managing director.


Founded in 2002 and headquartered in Singapore, Forefront Medical Technology (www.forefrontmedical.com) is a medical device contract manufacturer specializing in medical disposables, diagnostics, drug delivery products and electromechanical sub-components. Forefront Medical operates FDA registered and TUV ISO 13485 accredited, state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Singapore, and Changzhou and Xiamen, PRC. Forefront is a wholly-owned subsidiary of VicPlas International (SGX:569).


Founded in 1989 and headquartered in Kington, Herefordshire, UK, Arrow Medical Limited (www.arrowmedical.co.uk) provides contract manufacturing services for a variety of medical and mission critical customers. Arrow Medical maintains three ISO Class 7 (US Fed Std 10,000) clean room assembly facilities for the assembly of single use devices and other Class 2 and Class 3 products for use in anaesthesia, emergency and cardiac treatments. Two additional clean room facilities are dedicated to High Consistency Rubber (HCR) and liquid silicone rubber (LSR) moulding and RF welding, respectively. Arrow Medical is FDA registered and certified to ISO 13485:2016.
