WARSAW, Ind., USA: Symmetry Surgical, provider of surgical instruments and subsidiary of Symmetry Medical, has entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with MTG Medical Technology, subsidiary of Neuro-Competence, for Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia. The new partnership is to further Symmetry Surgical's global presence and set the stage for further expansion into Europe.

Under the terms of the agreement, MTG will distribute Symmetry Surgical's portfolio of surgical instruments, which includes all brands and products of the recently acquired Codman surgical instruments portfolio from Johnson & Johnson.

MTG, with more than 14 years of experience, is a medical device distributor focused on neurosurgical products that enhance patient care and support hospital providers with cost-effective quality products. MTG will provide Symmetry Surgical with broad regional coverage to support growth of Symmetry's product portfolio.

"Partnering with MTG and bringing the Symmetry Surgical portfolio to Europe is an exciting milestone in expanding our global presence," said Chris Huntington, COO of Symmetry Surgical. "Their expertise and mission align with our own values, which are focused on improving patient care and outcomes. We look forward to working with MTG to achieve strong growth in these key markets as we continue our expansion into other European countries in the coming months."
