Freudenberg Medical, a global developer and manufacturer of medical devices, components, and minimally invasive solutions for the medical device industry, announces VistaMed’s €9m expansion of its catheter manufacturing facility in Carrick-on-Shannon, Ireland. VistaMed, a Freudenberg Medical joint venture company, is a leading provider of catheter development and assembly services, complex extrusions, and minimally invasive devices to medical device OEMs. VistaMed is part of Freudenberg Medical’s Minimally Invasive Solutions group with five product development and manufacturing locations over the United States, Costa Rica, and Ireland.

“This latest expansion is in response to the strong demand that VistaMed is experiencing for its products and services in the international minimally invasive medical device sector, specifically focused on catheter-based technologies,” said Patrick Mulholland, Managing Director of VistaMed. “The growth we have experienced over the last few years would not have been possible without the dedication and commitment of the VistaMed team and our partnership with Freudenberg Medical.”
