Sharps Compliance Corp. (NASDAQ: SMED) (“Sharps” or the “Company”) and Daniels Sharpsmart Inc. (“Daniels”) recently announced they have formed a joint marketing alliance. Sharps is a leading full-service provider of cost-effective mail-back/ship-back solutions designed for the proper management and treatment of medical waste as well as used healthcare products. Daniels is a world-wide leader in sharps containment and medical waste management.
Sharps and Daniels will offer Sharps’ mail-back/ship-back solutions for small quantity generators of medical waste and used healthcare products. In addition, Daniels will offer its route-based pickup services for the larger quantity generators of medical waste. The services can also be blended to include both of the company’s offerings, thus, providing the most efficient and cost-effective solution to meet the needs of all types of health care organizations.
“By combining our easy-to-use and cost-effective Sharps ® Recovery and TakeAway™ Recovery Systems with Daniels, we believe we can serve the entire U.S. marketplace with the most cost-effective option for managing sharps disposal, medical waste and used healthcare product treatment,” said President and CEO of Sharps Compliance David P. Tusa. “When our offerings are blended for larger operations that may have multiple-sized facilities, we believe our customers would receive the most efficient and cost-effective solution available in the market today.”
“As a global leader in sharps and medical waste management, we frequently run across opportunities where smaller quantities of medical waste are generated that are well suited for Sharps’ line of solutions,” said Chief Executive Officer Markus Koch. “Combined with our focus on healthcare operations that generate larger quantities of medical waste, we believe the marketing arrangement will effectively serve customers with multiple-sized operations through a combination of route-based pickup and mail-back / ship-back solutions. We are confident that this alliance can be successful because both organizations place a high value on customer service, safety and protecting the environment.”
