Twenty new jobs have been announced by medical devices firm, Veryan, who will expand their operations with a multimillion-euro investment.
The Galway-based company recently relocated to a new Innovation Centre at Parkmore Business and Technology Park where they currently manufacture their BioMimics 3D Swirling Flow stent, which improves blood flow through arteries in the leg.
Veryan opened its facility in Galway in 2006 and was acquired by Otuska Medical Devices (OMD) in 2018. Since then, the workforce has grown from 11 to 46 employees in design engineering, development, supply chain operations, regulatory, quality assurance through to clinical operations, data management and finance.
The investment is expected to create 20 further full-time jobs associated with three development projects, two focused on arterial intervention and another, an exciting new treatment for venous disease.
The company is currently recruiting for these new roles.
“I’m really pleased to see that Veryan Medical will be creating 20 additional jobs over the next two years with this significant new investment. This expansion demonstrates the company’s commitment to Ireland and will allow it to continue to benefit from the rich pool of talent in Galway and the surrounding area. I wish the team the very best for the future,” said Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise Trade and Employment, Leo Varadkar.
