There is a jobs boost for Galway this morning as a medical devices company is expanding in Ireland.
Biomerics, the leading vertically integrated medical device contract manufacturer serving the interventional device market, has today announced the opening of a 2,000 sq. ft. Balloons & Balloon Catheters Centre of Excellence in Galway and the creation of approximately 40 jobs over the next five years.
This is Biomerics' first facility in Europe and the second facility outside the United States after Costa Rica. It will become home to a growing team dedicated to the development and manufacturing of balloons and balloon catheters and act as an extension to the operations in Athens, TX.
The new office will be located at 2 Liosban Business Park in Galway. Biomerics chose to locate in Galway due to the region’s significant cluster of medical device companies, a skilled labour pool, an international reputation, and access to suppliers and vendors.
