Boston Scientific to invest €17m in new Galway facility
09 June 2017
Boston Scientific has launched its new RoadRunner endoscopy design facility in Galway – €17m investment by 2020. The facility will host more than 300 international physicians every year to promote the development of metal stents. They expect this initiative to reduce the time it takes to develope a medical device to just six months.
“Through the RoadRunner facility, our engineers will gather real time feedback from international clinicians,” said Boston Scientific vice president Dr Darragh Colgan. “Ultimately, this will significantly improve the process for a device to make its transition from bench to bedside.
“Physicians will have quicker access to the devices that they need to improve the outcomes of their patients, both in Ireland and internationally.”
The new facility was launched yesterday by the Minister for State for the Gaeltacht Sean Kyne, TD.
Boston Scientific has operated in Galway for more than 20 years and employs more than 3000 people in the facility.http://www.engineersjournal.ie/2017/06/09/boston-scientific-to-invest-e17m-in-new-galway-facility/http://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/endoscope-1024x580.jpghttp://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/endoscope-300x300.jpgNewsBoston Scientific,Galway,investment,medical devices
