Qualimed Srl, the Italian company and exclusive licensee of the Desio colored contact lens brand, announces it will move to its new headquarters equipped with advanced production technologies, by the end of 2021. The investment, worth over € 3 million, arises from the need to centralize the production process to encourage organic growth and development in international markets. “The new headquarters, which will be ready by the end of 2021, will allow us to rationalize the organizational structure and thus achieve the growth objectives we have set for the next few years,” explains Tereza Uhrova, CEO & founder. “The new headquarters will cover an area of over 3,000 square meters, of which 1,000 will be dedicated to production. In the new production area, a 70sqm clean room will be built, which will allow the production and control of contact lenses in a safe environment: The investment also includes the purchase of various industrial automated machinery to optimize the production of both packaging and in a sterile room and, outside, in the final stage of packaging. The important investments in the production area and in the tools for controlling the optical power and geometry of the lenses which will allow Qualimed to ensure a high level of control over the quality of the final product. Further investments will also be made in R&D for the creation of new geometries, new colours and new materials. The company objectives are also aimed at certifying all products according to the new European MDR regulation by 2023.” Since our debut on the market ten years ago, we have wanted to differentiate ourselves from our competitors by focusing exclusively on the colored contact lens segment and offering an assortment of unique iris designs, colours and refractive powers. A strategy that proved to be successful because the pattern of the lenses, the quality of the materials and the visual comfort of Desio have become a ‘trademark’ of our brand and the secret of its success all over the world.”
