We have two Business Units each responsible for their respective sales, marketing and Research and Development (R&D) activities. Both Business Units focus on a different strategic route to market.

Surgical Business Unit – Focus on selling, marketing and innovation of all AMS branded products. These are sold directly and through distributors.

Woundcare Business Unit – Focus on distribution, marketing and innovation of products that are supplied to medical device partners under their own brands.

We operate in the global tissue-healing technologies market. The market is growing steadily, driven by an increasingly ageing population and advances in technology.
