The Right Honourable Carwyn Jones AM, First Minister of Wales visited Rocialle to officially open the company's new packaging line for its Essential range of single use surgical instruments.

Employing over 300 people at its facilities at Mountain Ash and Aberaman, and investing in the skills and machinery vital to being competitive at a global level, Rocialle, said the First Minister, typifies how South Wales is regenerating.

The First Minister highlighted how the biosciences industry in Wales has developed to a significant level, employing 15,000 people. It offers great opportunities for growth in exports and Rocialle is one of the companies that will be representing Wales on the Welsh Government's stand at Medica, the world's largest medical trade show, being held in Dusseldorf in November.

The new packaging line enables Rocialle to add value to its range of surgical instruments. Seven different sizes of box and inner packaging ensure that waste and shipping costs are minimised, and the aesthetic quality is greatly enhanced.
