Flourishing medical company expands at Sunny Bank Mills

The flourishing medical services company Technomed has moved into larger premises at the award-winning Sunny Bank Mills at Farsley in West Yorkshire.

The Covid-19 pandemic has led to an increased demand for Technomed’s products, enabling the company to double the size of its offices at Sunny Bank.

Technomed has moved from its boutique Old Engine Room premises to the larger 1912 Mill, where Yorkshire Television’s Emmerdale and Heartbeat were filmed.

Mark Pashley of Technomed explained: “Our ECG On-Demand service is CQC inspected and provides Holter and 12-lead ECG services to both NHS and private healthcare organisations. Due to the hard work and commitment of all the staff at Technomed, the business has been growing rapidly over the last few years.

“The global pandemic has provided an opportunity for us to expand our Holter (wearable ECG device) mail order service. Where patients would traditionally be required to attend an appointment at a hospital or medical practice for fitment, with waiting lists sometimes into months, and then a second appointment at a later date for removal, within days our service sends the device directly to the patient for self-fitting at home with remote assistance if required.

“After a pre-defined wear period (this varies from 24 hours to 21 days) the encrypted device is collected via courier, returned to us and then reported on by one of our UK-based SCST accredited Cardiac Physiologists.

“The reports are immediately available on our secure portal for the healthcare provider’s clinical staff to process and treat the patient as required with much faster turnaround times and increased patient safety,” said Mr Pashley.

“We are proud to play our part in supporting the NHS and private healthcare providers in these challenging times. Do please visit our website to learn more,” he added.

He paid tribute to John and William Gaunt, the co-owners and managing directors of Sunny Bank Mills

“The Gaunts have consistently gone above and beyond in meeting our ever-changing secure storage, office space and specialist technical infrastructure needs, such as high-speed NHS fibre connectivity.

“Recently upgrading from our existing office at Sunny Bank Mills into a larger office within the site’s 1912 Mill building in order to meet our expansion requirements has been seamless. I can’t thank them enough.”

John Gaunt, joint managing director of Edwin Woodhouse, the owners of Sunny Bank Mills, commented: “The success of Technomed, and their expansion within Sunny Bank Mills, gives us tremendous pleasure. We are delighted that we have been able to nurture Technomed and provide everything the company needs to succeed, especially amid this global pandemic.

“Technomed’s move to our iconic 1912 Mill is a resounding endorsement of our development of, and investment in, Sunny Bank. The refurbished 1912 Mill now has a number of quality occupiers, but 14,000 sq ft of very flexible Grade A office space is still available to lease”.

During the past ten years the multi award-winning Sunny Bank Mills, one of the most famous family-owned mills in Yorkshire, has been transformed into a modern office complex for the 21st century. It is now home to 75 companies, who employ a total of nearly 400 staff.
