Medtech Rising 2018: The Irish Medtech Awards

by Arrotek Medical Ltd

We are absolutely delighted to announce that Arrotek Medical has been selected as one of the finalists in ‘Medtech Rising: The Irish Medtech Awards 2018’.
The ‘Medtech Rising’ awards are organised by the Irish Medtech Association, the Ibec group that represents the medtech sector, with Enterprise Ireland and IDA Ireland.

Arrotek Medical is one of only three companies shortlisted in the Medtech Partner/Supplier of the Year award. We believe our nomination is due to our proven track record of serving the leading medical device companies in the world, bringing their visions and ideas to life.

Since setting up in 2005, we have grown from a small premises in Strandhill with a handful of clients to a company with 30 employees and between 30 and 40 clients at any one time.

This nomination fits in with our long-term vision which is for continued, sustainable growth – keep tuned in for some exciting news on that front in the not-to-distant future!

Nominations like this one from the Irish Medtech Association validates the standard of services we are providing and the expert work being carried out by our dedicated employees.

The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on December 6 in Cork which we will be excited to attend. We are also looking forward to meeting our fellow nominees in the Medtech Partner/Supplier of the Year category – Design Partners and Sanmina Ireland.
