We’ve remained relentless in our pursuit as we continue to tackle the escalating environmental and financial waste generated in the health sector.
The remanufacturing process
Our Story

Medsalv founder Oliver Hunt has been described as having “the heart of a doctor and the brain of an engineer”. He developed the idea of remanufacturing medical devices while studying a master's degree in Engineering at the University of Canterbury.

Hunt discovered that many products that were sold as single-use didn’t need to go straight to landfill. He developed a remanufacturing process that could clean and test thrombosis sleeves for re-use up to 14 times.

Today, the company has remanufacturing processes for more than 50 products. Sustainability was and remains  at the heart of Medsalv and sustainable development ideas have been built into everything we do - from our social employment practices to our commitment to clean energy. We believe doing good is better than giving back.
