Links Medical Opens New Headquarters, Prepares to Launch Medical-Grade Manuka Honey

(Vocus/PRWEB ) December 2, 2009 -- Links Medical Products Inc., an industry leader in healthcare products for hospitals and nursing homes, announces the opening of its new headquarters in the Irvine Spectrum. The new facility is located at 9247 Research Drive, Irvine, California 92618. In addition, Links Medical maintains another facility in the Irvine Spectrum plus an assembly and distribution operation in Indio, California. This most recent expansion reflects Links Medical's rapid growth and the need for additional space to meet anticipated heavy demand for their new ManukaMed™ Medical-Grade Manuka Honey products.

We believe the new Medical-Grade Manuka-Honey-based wound care products will be widely accepted and help us continue our substantial growth," said Tom Buckley, CEO of Links Medical.

In addition to the ManukaMed wound care products, the company plans to launch a line of over-the-counter ManukaMed brand natural health and beauty products.

Recent research by the University of Sydney confirms Professor Molan's own work that shows that harmful bacteria are not able to develop resistance against the bacteriostatic activity of Manuka Honey.
