An Irish company which designs and manufactures healthcare garments has announced it is to expand into the United States.

Theya Healthcare has secured €665,000 in funding, which was raised from private angel investors and Enterprise Ireland.

The company plans to create four new sales and marketing jobs to support this expansion.

It also announced that it has signed a deal with the Greenhealth Exchange (GX), a US purchasing co-operative, which specifies, screens and sources high-quality sustainable and ethically sourced products for its members.

This deal will see Theya become a preferred supplier to 11 large US healthcare systems, including the Mayo Clinic, Dignity Health and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical.

The company was formally launched in 2015 by Ciara Donlon and is headquartered at NovaUCD at University College Dublin.

Its post-surgery lingerie range, designed primarily for use by breast cancer patients, currently retails across Ireland, the UK, mainland Europe, Australia, Canada, South Africa and the US.

CEO Ciara Donlon said: "The signing of this deal with the Greenhealth Exchange opens up the US healthcare market to us at a pivotal time in our expansion.

"The securing of this funding of €665,000 will be used to fund our reach into the lucrative US market and to create a number of new sales and marketing roles to help achieve this goal."

"This coincides nicely with our range becoming available on Walmart.com later on this month."
