Growth at Elcam
Elcam’s core values are Care, Consistency, Quality and Growth. Each quarterly newsletter during 2021 will focus on one company value and show how it is implemented and expressed within the organization. The chosen value for this newsletter is Growth.

Growth as an Elcam core value means always striving to do more and better. It means encouraging continuous improvement and learning for personal growth and business growth. It means being bold and innovative in new products, services and solutions. It means focusing on our success and that of our shareholders, customers and partners - so we can grow and prosper together.

Guli Kohn, Elcam’s CEO shared: "Growth for me is the value which all our other values are meant to support. Growth is a constant aspiration to do better, consistent encouragement for improvement and learning at both the personal and business levels”

In this newsletter we will focus on how the value of growth is expressed in Elcam’s activities
Growth through investments and partnerships
Elcam has recently partnered with two promising Israeli start-ups that are developing innovative devices. Both partnerships include investment as well as the manufacturing of the innovative device or part of it.

The TeaRx™ is an innovative diagnostic test for Dry Eye Syndrome (DES) developed by DiagnosTear Ltd. DES is a Multifactorial syndrome that is difficult to diagnose and treat. It is a fairly common problem as 48% of American adults experience related symptoms and 1 of 3 visits to US ophthalmic clinics is related to this syndrome’s symptoms.
Existing solutions are nonspecific and conflicting, measuring only a single parameter from this multifactorial syndrome, while the TeaRx™ provides multiparameter analysis of tear fluid: several tear components analyzed and combined into one result, and also enables identifying response for a specific treatment. Watch the video.

The Sentinel™ developed by Serenno Medical, is a unique digital monitoring device for measuring urine flow, monitoring Intra-Abdominal Pressure (IAP) and early detection of Acute Kidney Injury (AKI).
Continuous kidney function assessment allows the early detection of AKI, a common condition in hospitalized patients that significantly increases risk of mortality during and after hospitalization. Urine output (UO) is the best method for monitoring changes in kidney function and it is currently monitored intermittently and manually making acute changes in urine flow difficult to detect. This results in relatively late detection of kidney injury, sometimes after it is impossible to prevent further progression.
The Sentinel™ system promotes early detection of kidney injury, while there is still time to intervene and prevent further damage. It aims to automatically and accurately detect small changes in kidney function, allowing remote detection by the medical staff, reducing both patient and caregiver risk. Read more
Growth through enlarging facilities
New Warehouse in Dalton Israel

Elcam is excited to announce the opening of its new warehouse in the Dalton Industrial Park in Israel. The new warehouse is approximately 21,500 ft2 (2,000 m2), 65 feet (20 m) high and enables storage of 3200 pallets. The extreme height and narrow aisles of the facility mandates the use of a special Turret forklift that enables the forks to move without the entire truck moving. This warehouse that has been operational since March is designed to store all the final goods manufactured in both Israel facilities, keeping stock of raw materials and distribution to all customers. The new logistics center will accommodate the growth of Elcam over the next 10 years.

New Warehouse Under Construction in Carpi Italy

Elcam Italy has recently begun construction of a new warehouse in Carpi site that is scheduled to complete by Q3 2021. The new warehouse will be an automated one operating according to the "goods to man" principle in which the operator will no longer need to move inside the warehouse to pick up the goods but will remain waiting for ordered items to come to him. With this new warehouse, Elcam Italy intends to improve service levels as required by an increasingly competitive and dynamic market that requires reduction in delivery times along with keeping of highest service quality.
Growth through new personnel and new managerial roles
