Galway-based medical device start-up ICS Medical Devices has revealed a major expansion plan in the county, which will involve moving its team into a new manufacturing facility.
ICS Medical Devices is a catheter design and manufacturing services provider, based in Ireland’s medtech centre, Galway. Its move to its new manufacturing facility will see it more than double its current footprint to enable its continued growth.
New job opportunities will also be created. The company is also advertising several roles on its website, including manufacturing technician, senior design engineer, process development engineer and quality engineer.
“We are delighted to be making this announcement today, particularly for our customers and staff,” said Seamus Fahey, CEO of ICS Medical Devices.
In the three years since the company was established, it has “rapidly grown” to a team of more than 60 people, according to Fahey. It has an extensive customer base across Ireland, Europe, Asia, the Middle East and the US.
It works with other start-up medical device companies to develop niche and breakthrough catheter technologies for minimally invasive medicine.
Fahey said he hoped the expansion would enable the company to extend its capacity and services to serve “a growing international customer base.”
As part of the expansion and move into its new facilities, ICS Medical Devices is adding extensive general manufacturing space and a Class 8 cleanroom capacity. It also plans to add new technologies supporting its catheter capabilities and it is building a customer innovation centre. The company is aiming to formally open its new facilities in the Autumn.
“Our commitment to serving those customers over the last three years, deepening relationships, and delivering impactful results has created enormous opportunities for ICS Medical Devices across the global medtech industry. This success has been delivered by an incredible team of talented, experienced, and results-driven engineers. Combining our customer-first focus with the skills of our team has yielded the growth opportunities that led to this expansion announcement,” Fahey concluded.
