Ansamed's extrusion capabilities include multilayer, co-extrusion and multi-lumen extrusion, all in a Class 100,000 cleanroom, plus catheter design, development and manufacturing services. It processes many plastics including polyethylene, TPE, PUR, nylon and more. The company is based in Boyle (County Roscommon), Ireland.
Vention Medical handles outsourced manufacturing of medical devices and has in-house capabilities include product design and development, manufacturing of custom components such as medical balloons and heat-shrink tubing, plus cleanroom injection molding and device assembly.
