United Surgical in Bangladesh was founded in 2006 to accomplish two objectives: First, to manufacture world-class orthopedic soft goods for distribution around the world and secondly, to give Bangladeshis the opportunity to join a company governed and directed by social entrepreneurs with a Christian worldview.
The company grew slowly in the beginning, mastering a solid level of technical expertise and building a middle management team and work force committed to the pursuit of excellence. Over time, the company has grown to a workforce of more than 200 people. In 2010, United Surgical BD attained its ISO 13485 certification and from its inception has maintained a very low overall defect rate.
In 2011, United Surgical was proud to open a manufacturing wing dedicated to building the LIMBS Relief Knee. Thankful for the opportunity to participate with LIMBS in their great humanitarian work of providing high-functioning prosthetic knees to underprivileged amputees around the world, United Surgical is pleased to build and deliver the LIMBS knees at cost.
