Combining innovation and clinical focus to make it better in the UK
The Sidhil name has been synonymous with quality for many years, with the company enjoying an established reputation in the community, residential/nursing home and GP sectors for its flexible, functional electrically operated beds, surfaces and healthcare furniture.
In recent years, Sidhil has been rapidly gaining market share in the acute sector too with the development of a comprehensive range of ward beds and static/dynamic surfaces now competing successfully with the global giants and winning important contracts with NHS Trusts across the UK, as well as emerging export markets. Key to this expansion has been the company’s focus on innovation, backed up by investment in clinical expertise.
First established in 1888, Sidhil’s reputation for performance and quality is based on total commitment to the developing requirements of the healthcare market. The company’s sustained focus on research and development ensures a constant flow of new and improved products into all market sectors.
