Life-saving equipment for Challenge8000 Team

Friday, 17 September 2010 14:10

Technoline Ltd. have sponsored the Challenge8000 team through the purchase of potentially life-saving equipment to be used by the team in their two extreme mountaineering attempts in the Himalayas.

Picture above: Simon Cusens, Managing Director of Technoline presenting equipment to Marco Cremona of Challenge8000.

The Challenge8000 team is made up of Marco Cremona, Gregory Attard and Robert Gatt. In September they will attempt to break into the 8000m elevation barrier (also known as the Death Zone) when they will climb the 8201-metre high Cho Oyu.

In March 2010 the Challenge8000 team will attempt to get to the top of the world when they will scale Mt. Everest.

This will be the first-ever attempt by a Maltese team to climb over 8,000 metres. The current national elevation record stands at 6962 metres, achieved when Marco Cremona and Gregory Attard climbed Aconcaugua in the Andes in January 2008.

Equipment provided by Technoline Ltd. includes a portable oxygen saturation meter which the team will use to check their acclimatization process. The oxygen in the blood decreases with altitude; an oxygen saturation level below 70% is potentially fatal. At sea level, the oxygen saturation level is typically 98-99%.

To mitigate the incidence of frostbite, the Maltese Team has also been equipped with battery-operated foot warmers that should warm up the climbers' toes when the mercury drops to below - 25 degrees or lower. Frostbite is a common occurrence on these big mountains and in most cases this leads to the loss of fingers and toes.

Technoline also provided the Challenge8000 team with three sets of face masks, which include a heat exchanger as a mouthpiece. The air in the Himalayas mountain range is cold and dry and induces a condition referred to as the Khumbu cough. This cough can get so bad that some climbers actually break ribs through coughing. The heat exchanger exchanges heat and moisture from the exhaled air with the cold, dry air with the result that the inhaled air is warmer and contains some moisture. The Maltese climbers will also wear these masks when sleeping.

Technoline is a leading supplier of medical, laboratory, homecare and scientific equipment in Malta.

New, smarter online face for Technoline Malta.

Thursday, 23 June 2011 10:39

Technoline Malta announced the going LIVE of its new, state-of-the-art, content-driven website this 25th June 2011.

The site addresses three main priorities, first that of serving as the company welcoming face to clients, secondly to enable improved interactivity between Technoline and its market, and finally, to strengthen the company’s Euro-Med presence.

“The launch of Technoline’s new site compliments the recent adoption of our new corporate identity” explained Simon Cusens, Managing Director for Technoline Ltd.

Developed by the Maltese-German IT firm, Dmax.tv, www.technoline.com.mt is a minimalist designed, easy to navigate and information-rich site, that communicates Technoline's  brand id to its visitors.

“The new site gives us a lot of flexibility in terms of dynamic data updates which offers us the opportunity to alter the site structure in-house, depending on our changing business requirements, and its search-engine-optimization (SEO) features enable us to reach a wider audience than other conventional methods,” highlighted Patrick Farrugia, IT Manager.

Technoline has this year also invested in Dmaxepaper.com,an advanced email marketing solution that includes automated business reply service. This smart system enables the company to keep in touch with its contacts through eNewsletters and in the process, maintaining real-time intelligence statistics about readership and market trends.

As part of a contemporary online presence, Technoline has also launched its online shop, facilitating the purchase of many of its products and consumer brands, including a home delivery service. The added advantage to clients is the ease of placing the order, the online payment process and the peace-of-mind of knowing local after-sales service is guaranteed.

“Technoline will continue to invest in its online presence, SEO and company IT as I believe this brings us even closer to our clients and distinguishes us positively from the rest of the market, in terms of our 'added value' promise,” concluded Mr. Cusens.

Technoline’s new web site was part-financed by the European Regional Development Funds (ERDF) programme.

Malta Red Cross president Prof. Frederick Fenech, thanked Mr Cusens for his support over the years. He assured him that such actions really helped the Malta Red Cross in its humanitarian pursuits.

Malta Red Cross Chairman Edward Gruppetta expressed the hope that such a generous act would inspire other organisations to make similar contributions towards noble causes.

New Corporate Identity for Technoline

Friday, 17 September 2010 14:11

Technoline has just adopted a new corporate identity (CI), one that builds on the previous one in terms of look and feel, an example being the retaining of its distinctive green cube.

In the new logo the letters, as well as the cube, have been given a three dimensional look and feel, with shadow and light, as well as a faint shadow underneath. Clarity was an essential message included in the brief handed to the branding firm concerned. The logo had to be blunt, yet stylish and easy to recognize at a glance.

According to Technoline’s Managing Director Simon Cusens, this upgraded CI will continue to strengthen the company’s recognition in the industry, communicating its forward looking vision as a leader in its field. This has gone hand in hand with the creation of a completely new web presence, further establishing its commitment to future growth and forward thinking.

Simon Cusens announced that Technoline will make much more use of online media, and has already adopted Dmaxepaper.com for its email marketing. He sees email as the obvious medium with which the company can reach its customer base effectively, whilst also making use of the epaper's sophisticated tracking system.

The firm behind Technoline’s new CI is Dmax.tv.  When asked what he sees in the new logo, Dmax CEO Ray de Bono said "the new logo inherits most of the characteristics of Technoline’s previous one, whilst bridging the company with the digital age, giving it a deeper dimension and outright dynamism."

Whilst appreciating Technoline’s pioneering role in having been one of Malta’s first operators in the medical and scientific supplies and maintenance sectors, Simon Cusens sees the new CI as ‘timeless’, therefore strengthening the company’s mission and business aspirations for the future."
