COVER STORY: Starkstrom reports ‘considerable growth’ in demand

Starkstrom has its UK office and manufacturing facility in Syston, Leicester. The company is in its 53rd year of offering integrated solutions for the design, supply, installation, and commissioning, of electrical safety solutions for Group 2 medical locations, and infrastructure and clinical products to NHS and private hospitals for operating theatres and ‘Recovery’, Critical Care, Emergency Departments, Endoscopy, and training facilities.

Products manufactured in its factory ‘support the UK economy by maintaining and creating local jobs’. It said: “High-quality manufacturing to international standards (ISO 9001 and ISO 13485), and compliance with BS EN 1090, demonstrate an ongoing commitment to quality, and reassure our customers that our design and technical packages – with formal drawing approval prior to manufacture on all fabricated products – result in class-leading equipment for their facilities.”  

Starkstrom clinical pendants reportedly offer ‘class-leading infection prevention’, supplying medical gases, power, and data, to critical hospital locations. Starkstrom says it is one of only a handful of companies manufacturing in the UK offering a full range of pendants, together with pneumatic and electromagnetic braking for the pendant arms. 

Service and after-sales are a key element of its philosophy, and the company provides whole-life support for its products nationwide, ‘giving our customers complete peace of mind’. 

Starkstrom has seen considerable growth in demand for its infrastructure products manufactured in Leicester – these include IPS systems, surgeons’ panels, and clinical pendants, for operating theatres, Endoscopy, Emergency, and Critical Care Departments. It said: “Our significant presence across the UK is driven by our experienced sales team engaging early in projects to support architects,  design consultants, M&E contractors, and clinical teams, taking them through every aspect of the design of their facility.” 

Starkstrom is also the authorised distributor for KLS Martin operating lights and diathermy equipment; OPT Surgisystems operating tables, and the full range of Atmos Medical suction systems. And the company is part of the NHS Supply Chain Framework – Operating Theatres Equipment and Related Accessories and Services (supplychain.nhs.uk).
