Catheter design and manufacturing service provider ICS Medical Devices has announced plans to create 100 new jobs upon the official opening of its new Galway facility.
CS also intends to add an additional 10,000 square feet to the manufacturing and R&D facility.
The medical device company began operations at its new Galway facility earlier this year, doubling its capacity to serve international customers.
The expansion of the footprint is now planned for next year and will add additional production and clean room space to the facility.
ICS also intends to open a Customer Innovation Center in Galway to provide technical support for the development of minimally invasive catheters.
The medtech company has now begun the recruitment process for new team members, with positions available in engineering, research and development, and manufacturing.
ICS Medical Devices works with industry start-ups to develop catheter technologies for minimally invasive medicine.
Once the devices are designed, developed and commercialized, the catheters are then used in medical procedures such as structural cardiac, neurovascular and endovascular therapies.
Established 3 years ago, the company currently employs 70 people in Galway.
“Our goal is to become the first choice provider of contract design, development and manufacturing services for innovative start-up medical device companies across Europe, Asia, the Middle East and the United States,” 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 capabilities.”
