Galway medical technology company Aerogen is representing the Irish medical technology industry in the final of the Engineers Ireland Excellence Award.
The award is a showcase for engineering excellence around Ireland and the overall winner will be decided by a public vote.
Aerogen, which was founded in Galway in 1997 and plays a critical role in treating patients on life-support ventilation, as well as home care offerings is asking the people of Galway to back its medical device.
Aerogen CEO John Power is delighted to have been shortlisted for this coveted award. “The engineering which goes into medical devices in Ireland is top class. We are delighted to be representing the medical technology industry at this level. It shows that Ireland is not only a hot bed for manufacturing medical technology, but also for design, research and development.”
The Aeroneb Solo II project involved the movement of the production process for the patented nebulisers from the Far East back home to Molex in Shannon, reducing the company’s carbon footprint as well as the price of production. As a direct result of this project, Aerogen is now in a position to upscale production which opens up new market opportunities, such as drug development partnerships with pharmaceutical companies.
