Lotus sutures which form a major component of the business are used in supra major surgeries like by-pass, heart valve replacement, paediatric cardiac surgery and liver and kidney transplants where life literally hangs by a thread.
Keeping these high profile surgeries in mind the simple philosophy followed by Lotus since its inception, is not to worry about the top line, or the bottom line, but the life line of the patient.
With this in mind Lotus put in place one of the finest ultra modern 60,000 square feet facility in Dehradun, India, which is at par with the best in the world. It is important to note that the entire mfg. area of 25000 sq. ft. is designed to meet Class 10,000 cleanliness standards of US FED 209E (i.e. not more than 10,000 particles of size .5 microns per cubic feet of air).
Not many companies worldwide especially in the consumables space can lay claim on such an infrastructure, which forms the basis for products which are used in highly critical surgeries.Lotus was the first company in India to introduce a peel able aluminium pouch for synthetic absorbable sutures and also developed a fully automatic packaging machine where forming, sealing, printing and cutting are done in a continuous motion thus eliminating human error and handling.By following a patient centric philosophy, the Lotus brand has been able to win the trust and confidence of the medical fraternity and the challenge in the coming years will be to sustain this trust and take Lotus to the next level.
