Texas Medical Technology, a leading technology provider, led by its Israeli Founders Omri Shafran, and Co-Founder Dimitri Menin, President of Texas Medical Technology, is now joined by Jad Shraim, a third-generation Palestinian born in Amman. Jad joins the firm as a managing partner and CFO. Together, the trio are collaborating to re-define PPE safety in a post-pandemic reality, where businesses sorely need to retain workplace confidence.

Though the world has become more globalized and borders are increasingly being blurred, it remains incredibly rare that professionals from opposing sides of this dispute set aside their differences for the good of the humanity. That’s what makes this working relationship work even better, a recognition that politics should remain in politics, while regular entrepreneurs working on enhancing the world should be free to define their own relationships.

Putting the politics aside, the trio are now working together on several smart solutions including providing an array of advanced tech and non-tech equipment to empower administrators to monitor potential medical crises and protect employees. Since inception, the company has come forward leaps and bounds, having created a 144,000-square-foot factory in Texas that employs 550 workers.

Texas Medical Manufacturing is a subsidiary under Texas Medical Technology. Initially, the trio set up factories in Mexico in order to meet demand for disposable personal protective gear. In the first month alone, the company sold $4 million of products, mostly consisting of disposable items, such as latex gloves and surgical gowns. By the end of September, six months after the company opened for business, the company’s sales soared to $50 million.

“In a world going through significant change, it seems like the perfect time for a new breed of business engagement to take the reins,” says Omri Shafran, Founder & CEO of Texas Medical Technology. “We need to remind ourselves, as the pandemic has done, that the challenges we face don’t discriminate. It’s now more important than ever that we come together in order to face up to the challenges of today.”

“The fact that I have Palestinian roots and Omri and Dimitri served in the Israeli army is a collaboration that is genetically impossible; however, we wanted to prove to the world that it is in fact possible and if we are able to rise above politics the relationship and the collaboration will be very special. I think it’s part of my responsibility as a Palestinian to lead by example and raise awareness for both side to show that peace and coexistence with equal rights is possible if we rise above politics. Omri, Dima and I want peace for all our people in our holy land”, said Jad Shraim.

Texas Medical Technology, one of the fastest growing companies in the U.S., has taken the supply challenges and placed them on its shoulders by shifting attention to COVID-related PPE. Providing an array of advanced tech and non-tech equipment to empower administrators to monitor potential medical crises and protect employees.
