About Surgical Holdings

Read the story of our family heritage in our blog post, Celebrating 30 Years of Surgical Holdings.

Founded in 1988 and based in Southend-on-Sea, Surgical Holdings is a trusted family-run business with over 30 years of experience spanning four generations.

Proudly ISO13485 and CE Mark accredited, we are skilled craftsmen and suppliers of surgical instruments, specialist products and orthopaedic implants manufacturers to both the NHS and private sector organisations around the globe.

However, it isn't quite enough to say that we manufacture and repair surgical instruments and rigid endoscopes. At Surgical Holdings, we strive for the best possible quality in everything we do. This has been the foundation for our approach ever since George Poole established his own soon-to-be-successful business in 1910, making finely-crafted surgical instruments.

George's passion and commitment to excellence have remained in the family, as he ensured successive generations were taught his unique skills. Today, Phillip Coole is chairman of Surgical Holdings, with his son Daniel at the helm as managing director. Daniel is the newest generation of skilled instrument craftsmen in the family.

The instruments we make and repair at Surgical Holdings are responsible for saving lives, and this is a responsibility we take very seriously. We do not simply promote a bland list of products, we are passionate about the work we do, and we genuinely care about the positive effects it has on our customers, patients and stakeholders.

Our ongoing mission is to educate our stakeholders on what they should be demanding from their surgical instruments and standards of repairs they receive. Whilst continuously supplying high-quality instruments and products and ensure the repair services we offer are the highest in the UK marketplace. There is no compromise, we believe instruments should be repaired with the same care and value, as they were originally manufactured.

This is why we only employ the most dedicated, highest-skilled surgical instrument technicians, and why we rigorously control every aspect of the products we repair and manufacture. We also only select the most innovative high-quality esteemed products for distribution.

Additionally, our carefully selected range of supporting distributed products are always serviced and repaired by our in-house team, to the same rigid specifications as were used in their construction.

To ensure the very best service we regularly refine and innovate our company processes and techniques. We like to use our expertise to elevate our product ranges, to ensure they provide a solution. This was the thought when we launched the "Duo-Finish" range and the introduction of unique performance coatings. Our customers appreciate the expertise that we are able to offer.

Our informative video tours will tell you everything you need to know about our history and experience, our unique culture, and the importance we place on education.  Meanwhile, you will find testimonials from our many happy clients on our Recommendations page.
