The world has been in pandemic mode for the past two years. In line with our vision to better the world’s health for everyone, everywhere, Medtecs donated PPE and medical supplies worldwide, with recipients ranging from frontline workers, school children to the elderly and other vulnerable communities who needed us the most. It will be an ongoing mission for us to provide new solutions to the public’s daily protection needs in the current and post-pandemic era.

May, Taiwan pandemic crisis support
At the end of May 2021, Taiwan experienced its first major COVID-19 outbreak. Overnight, the demand for PPE exploded and the Group responded in record time, shipping much-needed PPE and other medical supplies back to Taiwan by air to hospitals, clinics and those in need. In just 25 days, we distributed five million pieces of PPE from five distribution centres around the world. This has proved our ability to mobilize resources globally to assist clients across all sectors and during times of public health crisis, owing to the Company’s years of experiences and building the right relationships.
