US medical technology group Global Medical Products Holdings has found an alternative source of products for its Chinese distribution arm. GMPH's ECOM Shanghai International Trading subsidiary will stop distributing Boston Scientific's products - the latter having established its own direct distribution centre. Instead, it will distribute B Braun's Aesculap vena cava filters and vascular grafts. Additionally, GMPH is planning to set up a coronary circulation research centre at the Zhongshan teaching hospital in Shanghai. The company hopes that its clinical trial capabilities in the US and China will generate business from western medical product firms seeking an entry into the Chinese market.
