VistaMed’s investment of €7.2 million in R&D and product expansion will create 79 jobs, nearly doubling its workforce.
The Irish company designs, develops and manufactures catheters and complementary medical devices, exporting to the UK, Europe, US, South America and India.
Paddy Mulholland, Managing Director of VistaMed, said that the company “has continued to develop its capabilities and today we offer a comprehensive design development and manufacturing of innovative catheter solutions”.
The company’s investment is supported by the government through Enterprise Ireland.
Currently, 93 people are employed by VistaMed at its facility in Leitrim.
