The CliniSut story began in 1987 with a vision to produce high quality surgical wound closure material suitable for local and international markets at competitive prices. Following extensive research & development, CliniSut established a manufacturing plant in Port Elizabeth which catapulted the brand as a forefront runner in suture development in South Africa. With more than 30 years of experience CliniSut has culminated into a brand with a strong and growing global footprint with presence in over 30 countries in Africa, Middle East, Asia, Australia and Europe. 

With proven product quality, expertise, and customer centricity we have culminated sustainable relationships with stakeholders in state and private hospitals, wholesalers, independent healthcare professionals as well as distributors abroad. 

CliniSut boasts a world-class facility with ISO 13485 accreditation. Our unique pouch system, automated packaging and patented designs lend to CliniSut products ease of use. Our speciality products are meticulously manufactured using mechanically drilled needles, providing the best needle-suture combinations for easier passage ensuring less trauma to the tissue.
