Contech Medical International Announces Corporate Name Change to Advant Medical
Galway, Ireland, (21st March 2011) – Contech Medical International, a leading provider of contract services in areas of design, assembly, manufacturing and packaging to the global medical industry announced it has changed its corporate name to Advant Medical (www.advantmedical.com)
The name change to Advant Medical is part of an overall re-branding strategy to better reflect the broader services offered and the development of innovative products in the areas of catheter and guide wire delivery systems and vascular access devices. Commenting on the announcement, Advant Medical CEO, Bob DiPetrillo said “Our new corporate identity allows us to realign and position the company to target new business in both new medical markets and international territories”.
From its global headquarters in Galway, Ireland, Advant Medical has 20 years’ experience providing contract services in areas of design, packaging and assembly to the medical devices industry. In recent years the company has invested heavily in its research and development and engineering capabilities and has successfully partnered with many of the leading cardiovascular companies in product development. DiPetrillo added “While our focus remains on offering contract services to the industry, our R&D investment means that over the next 3-5 years we will develop improved and new products under our own brand, the first of which is Centurion, a device that greatly reduces the risk of damage to the stent and balloon during transportation and handling.”
Contech will officially launch its new name Advant Medical at Medtec Stuttgart (March 22-24) and will exhibit at booth number 6181.
