Ethos’ Investment & the Creation of Vertice MedTech
Amayeza Abantu Biomedical (Pty) Ltd, Amayeza Abantu meaning medicine for the people in isiXhosa, one of South Africa’s indigenous languages, was established in 1998. A material milestone for the company was the conclusion of agreements in 2001 with St. Jude Medical for the marketing and distribution of its Cardiac diagnosis and Cardiac Rhythm Management product range in South Africa. In 2016 Abbott Laboratories (www.abbott.com) acquired St Jude Medical.
Over the years the company has developed substantially, diversifying its activities in wound care, neuromodulation and spine surgery while extending its footprint across the Sub-Saharan region. This has resulted in Amayeza Abantu becoming a leading provider of quality solutions throughout the continent. Amayeza Abantu became renowned for its ability to deliver specialist, quality, state-of-the-art medical technology and skills transfer. The strong relationships that developed over 20 years and continue with key healthcare professionals and hospitals in our region, laid the foundation to partner with Ethos.
