About Armstrong Medical Ltd

“I established Armstrong Medical in 1984 to manufacture and sell respiratory disposable products for Critical care applications.”

“Since then the company has grown considerably to become a worldwide supplier of high quality, innovative respiratory disposables for Neonatal, Perioperative and Critical care. We now supply products to over 60 countries worldwide from our 90,000 square foot office, warehouse and manufacturing facility in Northern Ireland.”

John Armstrong, Chairman

“Our manufacturing resources include state-of-the-art automated robotic injection moulding and tubing extrusion. All of our tubing, connectors, valves and laryngeal airways are made in-house.”

Nigel Simpson, Processing Manager

“Our Cleanroom suite consists of class 10,000 and class 100,000 – type assembly Cleanrooms. Hand assembly allows our customers to customise their own product specifications if our standard range does not meet their exact requirements. Stringent quality control checks ensure that products leaving the Cleanroom for despatch are of the highest quality.”

Peter Francis, Assembly Manager

“Design and development are an integral part of the Armstrong Medical ethos with patient safety to the fore at all times. Our AMSORB® PLUS manufacturing facility has been running since 2002 and through our continual investment in manufacturing equipment and techniques we are able to cope with the increased demand this product has attracted over the years.”

Alan Harper, Manufacturing Manager

“We offer a number of different freight and despatch options to suit all customers. For those customers who need just in time supply, we can arrange stock holding agreements or call off orders to ensure continual supply.”

Paul Grant, Logistics Controller
