Bender announces the launch of Suite 97, a new customer experience area. 

This major investment in a state-of-the art space at the Bender UK Cumbria headquarters provides a fully immersive experience for visitors, enabling them to explore Bender technology within a simulated, modern operating theatre environment. The area includes a mini plant room with medical IT and uninterruptible power and clinical technology. Suite 97 can link to live images from the operating theatre, fully replicating what happens in a teaching hospital. It includes cutting-edge medical infrastructure, auditorium capabilities, and remote video conferencing through a smart camera setup.

Gareth Brunton, Managing Director of Bender UK, emphasised the purpose of Suite 97. He said: "We understand that the challenge in the healthcare sector is two-fold. For existing hospital facilities, it is managing ageing, unreliable equipment that affects operational efficiency.  For extension and new build projects requiring design consultation, it is better understanding what is possible, and this space is the perfect showcase what is achievable.

Bender has a strong heritage of electrical safety and proven expertise in designing and delivering quality, bespoke engineered solutions for critical industry applications.  Bender also partners with leading healthcare suppliers to complement its offering, delivering projects that enhance operational capability and help NHS and private medical groups to deliver the best in patient care.

 “Our investment in Suite 97 underpins our commitment to providing a one-stop-shop for our customers. It allows healthcare professionals to experience our complete solution first-hand, bringing to life the advanced capabilities we offer,” continues Gareth.

“From the initial design stage with consultants and end users through to equipment selection, installation, commissioning, as well as ongoing managed service and maintenance for a complete 360 solution, we are there for the entire journey.  This trust, which we have built with our clients over the last 25 years in the UK and Ireland, is encapsulated by our dedication to supporting the equipment's lifecycle and beyond."
