Expanding medical firm doubles office size in historic mill complex

A MEDICAL services company has moved into larger premises at the award-winning Sunny Bank Mills in Farsley.

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

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

Mark Pashley of Technomed said the company’s ECG On-Demand service is provided to both NHS and private healthcare. It’s wearable ECG device mail order service has expanded due to Covid.

He said: “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. ”

“We are proud to play our part in supporting the NHS and private healthcare providers in these challenging times.”

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, said: “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.”

During the past ten years Sunny Bank Mills has been transformed into a modern office complex. It is now home to 75 companies, who employ a total of nearly 400 staff.
