About SIGH Our Products

Corporate History:

Surgical Instrument Group Holdings Ltd (SIGH) is a full service Surgical Instrument Company. Founded in 1995 to consolidate some of the many small companies in the Instrument and Instrument repair business. SIGH made their first acquisitions in 1997 by purchasing Baker & Thomson and Caterham Surgical Supplies Ltd. This provided the basis for manufacture and repair whilst SIGH was already the UK distributor for MICRO FRANCE Laparoscopic instruments.

In March 1999 SIGH acquired the distribution business of VALEPLAN (formerly FROUD) and moved it from Colchester to Croydon.

In March 2001 SIGH acquired the business of MEDICAL INNOVATIONS (SERVICE CENTRE) LTD and moved their repair business from Mitcham to Croydon.

In June 2006 ,SIGH acquired the business assets of Osborn & Simmons, a well known and highly respected British manufacturer of Ophthalmic Instruments.

In April 2010 we added Endoscopic Manufacturing & Service Ltd to bring surgical telescope manufacturing & repair in house: In July 2010 we acquired some of the business assets of Decon Science Repair Services. These were probably better known before as Abbey Surgical (Surrey) and Yorkshire Medical Supplies. This last acquisition gave us an even larger presence in Surgical Instrument repairs in the South and established us as a substantial repairer north of the M62 corridor.

In July 2013 SIGH acquired the business of South Western Surgical ltd which is now known as South West Surgical ltd.

We continue to search for acquisition opportunities
