ProTek Medical, an Irish contract manufacturer, has acquired Ireland-based AP Design, a company providing product design services to the medical device industry. ProTek Medical offers manufacturing and design services for medical devices, specialising in injection moulding components for critical medical device applications, such as balloons and stent catheters. The acquisition gives ProTek a new design facility in Galway, Ireland’s medtech cluster. ProTek is located in the Finisklin Business Park in Sligo. AP Design’s current Director, Des Regan, will assume the role of Design Director at ProTek, but will remain at the Sligo facility.
Speaking about the acquisition, Frank Boyle, CEO, ProTek Medical said: “This investment was a natural progression for ProTek. It will give us the opportunity to further increase our design capabilities to position us for new product development contracts for the international critical care market.”Camilla Andersson
