Galway medtech ICS Medical to create 100 jobs at new facility

20 Sep 2022

The medical device company is hiring in engineering, R&D and manufacturing, and is planning further expansion next year.

ICS Medical is to create 100 new jobs as it officially opens its new manufacturing and R&D facility in Galway.

The medical devices company, which specialises in catheter design and manufacturing services, moved into its new facility in May 2022. The move doubled its capacity to serve a growing international base of customers.

ICS Medical works with international medical device companies on the design, development and commercialisation of catheters, access sheaths, balloon catheters, valve delivery systems and stent delivery systems.

It is supported by Enterprise Ireland’s High Potential Start Up programme, and has seen significant growth since it was established three years ago.

ICS Medical has already begun recruiting new staff to work in engineering, R&D and manufacturing. The new recruits will join the company’s existing team of more than 70 people.

The Galway-based company has announced that it is planning to add a further 10,000 sq ft to its newly opened facility. This investment is designed support the company’s continued growth and the expansion is planned for 2023.

The move will add manufacturing and cleanroom space to its existing operations. A new customer innovation centre will also provide specialist support for the development of minimally invasive catheters, which will be used to make certain surgeries safer and more tolerable. As well as this, ICS Medical plans to add new technologies to support its catheter capabilities.

“Our aim is to become the first-choice provider of contract design, development and manufacturing services for innovative start-up medical device companies throughout Europe, Asia, the Middle East and the US” said Seamus Fahey, CEO and founder of ICS Medical Devices.

“Today’s official opening of our new facility marks a significant milestone in achieving that vision. We now plan to accelerate our growth momentum by significantly expanding our team, capacity and capability. We look forward to serving new and existing customers and welcoming new team members to our world-class facility.”
