In response to growing business demand, Aran Biomedical Teoranta, a biomaterials contract manufacturer of proprietary medical devices, plans to create 150 new jobs over three years. Further, the company plans to build a new, purpose-built facility in Spiddal, Galway.
The positions have been created to meet increased demand in the company's operations, in both the design services and commercial manufacturing segments of the company's business. New jobs will be created in Production, Engineering, Quality and Supply Chain Management.
Separately, the company plans to triple its manufacturing capacity by establishing a new 70,000-sq.-ft facility in Galway. This development will be completed on a phase-by-phase basis, with full completion slated for mid-2025.
For orthopedic device companies, Aran focuses on sports medicine, spine and trauma therapies with capabilities that span weaving, braiding and knitting, including in each case variable textile configurations within a construct.
Peter Mulrooney, CEO, Aran Biomedical, said, "The past 12 months have been significant for Aran, in that we have expanded our customer base and the number of staff on site to over 120, coupled with the official opening of our dedicated braiding centre in December. We have continued to expand our biomaterial textile processing capabilities, and the new jobs and facility will allow us to meet our customers ever expanding supply needs in the Vascular, General Surgery and Orthopaedic fields."
