Minntech Corporation is a leader in the development, manufacturing, and marketing of medical devices, sterilants, and water filtration products. Minntech is expanding into new businesses based on its internally developed core technologies in device reprocessing, chemical sterilants, dialysis solutions and hollow fiber membrane devices.
|Social media is fast growing in scope and importance in the healthcare market. Minntech’s major competitors have launched social media campaigns to reach their audiences. Minntech lags behind these competitors in building a social media communication platform. There is a need to review market trends and competitive activities to understand how Minntech can enter and be effective in the social media space. |
Minntech has four distinct business units, each serving specific segments of the healthcare market.
A coordinated effort in planning is necessary to enable an effective, smooth launch of the Minntech social media platform. Additionally, this social media plan should include feasibility studies in the consumer space, as Minntech has begun participating via the SportSenseTM Protective Coating product.
