US medtech firm to create 100 jobs in Ballinasloe
13 June 2016
US medical devices company Surmodics is to create 100 new jobs in Ballinasloe, Galway.
Surmodics, which operates in medical devices and in vitro diagnostics, plans to develop its Ballinasloe facility by investing more than €7 million in facility development, including the recently acquired building, and creating 100 jobs over the next five years.
The investment follows the company’s acquisition of Creagh Medical in Ballinasloe in November 2015.
Surmodics will continue to be located in Creagh Medical’s existing 30,000 sq. ft. facility in Ballinasloe. The R&D investment represents a significant step-up in R&D capability for the facility and will require a high level of engineering, chemistry and scientific skill.
Tom Greaney, former CEO of Creagh Medical, has joined Surmodics as VP of global operations and general manager of the Ballinasloe operation.
“Surmodics is proud of our talented team of employees and our new state-of-the-art facility for medical device R&D and manufacturing in Ballinasloe,” said Gary R. Maharaj, president and chief executive officer of Surmodics.
“We are pleased to have established a presence in a location where we can hire and develop highly skilled medtech personnel as we continue to invest in our vision of developing highly differentiated product solutions.”https://www.engineersjournal.ie/2016/06/13/us-medtech-firm-to-create-100-jobs-in-ballinasloe/https://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Surmodics.jpghttps://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Surmodics-300x300.jpgNewsGalway,jobs,medical devices,research
