The official opening of ICS Medical’s new production and R&D facility in Galway will result in the creation of 100 new employment.
The medical devices company, which specialises in catheter design and manufacturing services, moved into its new facility in May 2022. The move will add a further 10,000 square feet to the facility to support continued growth.
ICS Medical works with international medical device companies on the design, development and commercialisation of catheters, access sheaths, balloon catheters, valve delivery systems and stent delivery systems.
The company has already begun recruitment to fill the new roles which include positions in engineering, research & development and manufacturing.
The 2023 expansion will boost current operations with more manufacturing and cleanroom space.
“Our aim is to become the first-choice provider of contract design, development and manufacturing services for innovative start-up medical device companies throughout Europe, Asia, the Middle East and the US,” said Seamus Fahey, CEO and founder of ICS Medical Devices.
“We now plan to accelerate our growth momentum by significantly expanding our team, capacity, and capability,” he added.
The jobs announcement was made at the official opening of the company’s new Galway facility.
“ICS Medical Devices is an excellent Irish company delivering cutting-edge solutions that enable its customers to pioneer advancements in catheter technologies,” said Leo Clancy, CEO of Enterprise Ireland.
“At Enterprise Ireland we are proud to have supported the company’s growth momentum and global ambition since it was established only three years ago,” he added.
Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise Leo Varadkar described the jobs announcement as a great boost to Galway and Ireland as a whole.
“This expansion and ICS Medical Devices’ plans to invest even further is fantastic. I am confident the team will find top talent to fill the 100 new jobs planned, and indeed any further that come down the road,” Mr. Varadkar said.
