Group President Tripp Amdur reflects:
‘The year 2020 was notable for its unpredictability and widespread disruption across multiple industries and in society in general. Within the healthcare industry, frontline workers affiliated with Medline’s customers (hospitals, clinics and other medical facilities) displayed great heroism under significant pressure as the COVID-19 pandemic persisted.
Medline is both proud and humbled to have contributed to the ongoing functioning of the healthcare systems in Europe by providing much-needed personal protective equipment and other medical supplies, and maintaining high customer service levels. Due to this, Medline enjoyed strong growth in Europe in 2020. And we achieved this good performance by executing a business strategy that prioritised an unwavering commitment to being an ethical and socially responsible company, regardless of the circumstances. This, in turn, enhanced our business’ resilience and boosted employee morale.’
