Eight Irish Medtech Companies Shortlisted for 2012 Excellence Awards

December 3, 2012 – 10:25 am

Once again, Ireland’s medical technology sector radiates ruddy health amid an otherwise listless economy. The Irish Medical Device Association (IMDA) announced that medtech exports increased by 10% in the first six months of 2012 compared with 2011: €3.93 billion against €3.57 billion for the same period last year. That heartening statistic provided a perfect backdrop as the shortlist for the 2012 Medical Technology Excellence Awards was revealed. Eight companies have been shortlisted for the awards—four for company of the year and four for the emerging company of the year. The winners will be announced on 13 December at an event in Galway. Incidentally, stay tuned to medtechinsider next week, as we will be reporting and tweeting (@emdt_editor) live from the ceremony.
