About Us

Kapitex was founded in 1991 and is a leading manufacturer and distributor of laryngectomy, tracheostomy and dysphagia medical devices, based in Wetherby, West Yorkshire. The company went through an acquisition in 2016, becoming a sister company to TRACOE Medical Gmbh, which saw Ian Worthington become Managing Director. It is now looking to increase in dynamism and bring about a new way of thinking to prepare the business for the future.

Since the acquisition in 2016, our priority has been growing our profile and preparing for the future. Along with our German partners, Stephan Köhler and Dr Thomas Jurisch of TRACOE Medical Gmbh, we are now looking to develop as an international company and exporter, taking advantage of the expanded knowledge base, networks and synergies we have access to. While TRACOE remains independent with its daughter company MC Europe in the Netherlands, we act as sister companies and collaborate actively to the benefit of all organizations.

The design, development, manufacture and distribution of laryngectomy, tracheostomy and dysphagia consumable medical devices is our key focus, and we are one of the largest suppliers of tracheostomy tubes to the NHS. These are manufactured by TRACOE in Germany and we are the sole UK distributor of these high-quality, technically advanced premium disposable items. We also manufacture and distribute a range of laryngectomy heat moisture exchange and filtration systems that are made in the UK and Asia, and have designed and developed innovative dysphagia products, to aid sufferers with drinking and swallowing difficulties. In addition, we are building our intellectual property portfolio with new international patents and registered designs.

The Company concentrates on the design, marketing and distribution of its products, whilst using highly specialized sub-contractors for their manufacture and assembly. We are dedicated to quality and regulatory compliance which is demonstrated by our certification to ISO 13485: 2016 and 93/42/EEC Medical Device Directive (CE Marking).
