Bettlach (ots) - The two Orthopaedic companies, the Swiss Mathys Ltd and the Italian Lima-Lto SpA concluded a close strategic cooperation this week in Villanova, Italy. Renowned clinics and surgeons have long placed their trust in the competence of both leading European Orthopaedic companies. Mathys Ltd situated in Bettlach and Lima-Lto S.p.A located in the north Italian town of Villanova are each independent family businesses. Both companies have been involved in the area of joint replacement for the past decades. This will not change in the future. "The independence of both companies will not be relinquished through the cooperation" say Gabriele Lualdi, President of Lima and Dr. Arne Faisst, COO and Chairman of the Executive Board of Mathys Ltd. In a first phase both contracting parties have agreed to exchange two joint replacement systems, to be sold under private labels. Paolo Pirazzoli, General Manager of Lima explains that through this cooperation the ability to bid successfully against the large American competitors will be massively improved. Dr. Arne Faisst is also extremely satisfied adding that the alliance entails additional future advantages: "The collaboration includes many opportunities for important synergies. We shall pursue projects to increase efficiency, for example in the procurement of raw materials". Through this close collaboration it will be possible for clients of both companies to have access to a joint replacement portfolio from European companies.
