Suture Express, Inc. distributes sutures, endo-mechanical products (“endo” products are used in minimally invasive surgery) and other disposable medical/surgical products destined for the operating rooms of hospitals and surgery centers across the United States. Orders are processed and fulfilled out of a single facility and delivered via Federal Express on a next-day basis. Suture Express offers its customers a complete assortment of more than 5,000 SKUs with no minimum order size, no required frequency of order, no hidden shipping/delivery/surcharge fees, and guaranteed next-day delivery. Suture Express is the lowest-cost distributor in the industry. Suture Express has experienced rapid growth since its founding in 1998 by focusing on the overnight distribution of disposable medical/surgical products that have most or all of the following characteristics: (1) large number of SKUs within a category, (2) used in the operating room and handled principally by physicians; and (3) high value, low cube, low weight. Suture Express has had great success as broad-line pharmaceutical and medical products distributors tend to carry a limited assortment and provide poor service.
