JRI appoints new UK business manager

Written by John Bohan

Sheffield-based JRI Orthopaedics has appointed Alistair Wheatley as its new UK business manager.

The former UK sales director for Biomet and Zimmer Biomet, as well as ten years working with Redditch-based Exactech, he brings with him a wealth of experience in the sector.

JRI Orthopaedics is based at a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility at Chapeltown and has world-class expertise in the design, development and manufacture of orthopaedic implants and surgical instruments.

Founded on innovation, it was the first company in world orthopedics to produce a hip implant with a Hydroxyapatite coating enabling a biological bond with the patient’s bone and so the prospect of a hip for life. Its current expanding product portfolio is designed with and for surgeons, to help them deliver the best solutions in joint reconstruction, repair and regeneration.

The company is also, uniquely, wholly owned by the charity Orthopaedic Research UK (ORUK) and donates its profits to ORUK to fund research into bone and joint disease at centres of excellence across the UK.
