Wayne David, Labour MP for Caerphilly, has visited Direct Heallthcare Services in the Western Industrial Estate, Caerphilly.
The company was recently named as the second-fastest growing firm in Wales.
Mr David met the management and workers at the company and paid tribute to the evident commitment of everyone involved. The company employs 42 people and has plans to boost its workforce by an additional 15 over the next 18 months.
The company manufactures a number of award-winning products for the NHS and the healthcare sector generally. Its products include specialist mattresses, cushions and overlays.
Wayne David said, “I was very impressed by the initiative and the forward-looking nature of the company. I saw at first-hand the production process for specialist mattresses, which effectively eliminates patients in hospital and people in care developing bed sores. It was great to meet such a skilled and dedicated workforce and management”.
