As part of its corporate development plan, Sebra has changed its name to Vante. Vante is an employee-owned global technology company that designs and produces products for the precise manipulation of medical plastics. It is focused on catheter development and manufacturing, bio-pharmaceutical products and related engineering services.
“Last year we sold our Blood Collection and Processing Division and the brand name Sebra,” said Roger Vogel, Vante Chairman, President and CEO. “This sale provided us with substantial capital to grow our medical device manufacturing product portfolio to serve customer and industry needs and develop and bring to market the latest innovations and solutions for the global medical device manufacturing industry. These are exciting developments for Vante.”
Vante has a worldwide direct channel sales system to original equipment manufacturers and distributors. It has initiated various innovative strategic partnerships with leading companies in the medical field, including:
• Partnering with ASG Medical Systems to produce the Automated Tipping System, which can double the capacity of the equipment involved,
• Conducting contract research and development work with Haemonetics, and
• Product development and engineering partnerships with companies including CaridianBCT, Baxter, and Terumo.
