Independence Products Limited
IPL is a distributor of a focused range of infection prevention products, primarily to patients with renal conditions, for use outside the hospital setting. IPL’s products are protected by patents and listed on the NHS Drug Tariff, which allows for them to be offered on prescription. IPL holds a Dispensing Appliance Contractor (‘DAC’) Licence which allows it to receive those prescriptions and distribute its products directly to patients, to interact with them and control the customer relationship. IPL distributes products from its warehouse in Nottingham, with the majority of orders on repeat prescription.
Graphite formed the group by bringing together three separate businesses. We are now working with IPL to build out its senior team. We are also investing in systems and technology to unify information provision, and are scaling marketing and commercial activities to drive further penetration of the Renal market. We are planning to diversify IPL’s product range to access other hospital units and are evaluating M&A and NPD opportunities to broaden the patient population.
