News from Hospitalar 2019

For the ninth consecutive year, Power-Packer exhibited our innovative actuation systems for medical applications at Hospitalar 2019, the leading health fair in Brazil and Latin America. Held each May in São Paulo, Brazil, Hospitalar features products that span all healthcare needs — from the most sophisticated and advanced medical technologies to standard equipment and disposable materials.

“Hospitalar allows us to bring our hydraulic solutions for patient handling directly to decision-makers in the healthcare industry,” noted Daniel Nascimento, sales leader for Power-Packer Brazil. “Since we began exhibiting at the show in 2011, healthcare leaders in the Brazilian market have discovered the value our actuation systems bring to their applications.” He added, “We’ve seen our sales in the region grow fivefold and look forward to another record year.”
