Experienced Head of Business Development joins the SP Services team

SP Services, the Telford based international supplier of medical consumables and equipment has appointed Paul Watts as the Head of Business Development for the company. 

Paul, who has previously worked at London Ambulance Service, Laerdal, Johnson & Johnson, DS Medical and SP Services (as a Regional Sales Manager) and more recently for Medical Services, brings with him almost 12 years of medical and healthcare industry experience to the SP Services team and will be responsible for new clients and managing a number of high profile partners. 

Steve Bray, Managing Director at SP Services, said, “We are delighted that a person with Paul’s experience and enthusiasm has re-joined the company in a new capacity. We have taken our time to recruit a high quality business development manager who not only has a proven track record, but also has the niche experience, product knowledge, desire and determination to succeed. He will be a great asset.” 

Paul said "I am very excited about this appointment as I have come up against SP Services many times over the past couple of years and I know how strong they are within the industry. I am delighted to re-join the team – or as I like to call them, family - I look forward to my new challenges. In fact I am buzzing and I cannot wait to get started”. 

SP Services has been producing and supplying medical consumables and equipment since 1989. Its customers include many of the UK’s ambulance services, NHS |Trusts, Police Forces, Fire Brigades, Premiership football clubs and large scale events such as the London 2012 Games and Baku International Games, SP work closely with a number of large charities, NGO’s and government organisations. A number of products SP supply even have their own Nato Stock Number (NSN).

Paul said of his new role ‘I will be focusing on the development of our new and expanding product ranges, for example the Parabag range has had a total redesign utilising the latest B3P fabrics to ensure they are infection control friendly and easy to clean. The range has been around for many years, trusted by professionals and medics the world over, so to be part of the team launching the new design features is very exciting.’

In addition to the new Parabag range the Donway range of emergency immobilisation and transportation equipment is also evolving, with new products including the Donway Vacuum Mattress, Vacuum Splints and the Donway Carbon Fibre 2-piece Stretcher.  Paul said ‘this is an exciting time to be rejoining SP, with a strong focus on new product innovations and assisting companies in their major incident preparedness plans.’

The devastating effects of a major incident or natural disaster have been thrust to the forefront of many individuals and organisations minds in recent times, with the Ebola pandemic in 2014 and the recent earthquakes in Nepal. By having a disaster preparedness plan in place on a business and personal level you can be better equipped and ready for the short, mid and long term effects of a major incident.
