Ortho Development Corporation (ODEV) is pleased to announce the establishment of a subsidiary company in Australia. Ortho Development Pty Ltd (ODEV Australia), with headquarters in Brisbane, Queensland, is a wholly owned sales and distribution company of ODEV. Mark Cane, a 20+ year veteran of the orthopedic industry in both South Africa and Australia, will be the company’s General Manager.
“We’ve had our sights on Australia for several years now as an important long-term strategic target market for Ortho Development,” said ODEV’s President Brent Bartholomew. “Our portfolio of clinically-proven, innovative products is custom-made for this discerning market. We plan to bring the nimble responsiveness, efficiency and value to Australia that has fueled our success in both the United States and Japan.”
The company is currently in the process of obtaining regulatory approvals for its products through the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). TGA approvals are expected in Q3 and Q4, and the first surgeries in Australia are planned before the end of 2019.
