Utah Medical Products to build blood monitoring facility in Ireland:
This article was originally published in Clinica
Utah Medical Products is to construct a manufacturing facility in Athlone, Ireland. Initial capital of $4 million will come from the company's current cash supplies and production will begin in Athlone in early 1996. The new facility will house assembly operations for blood monitoring components and Utah's electrosurgery product line. This will eliminate the need for European third-party local repair and warranty service, says Utah. Moreover, the company's largest non-Baxter OEM customer has agreed to hand over its EU customer base for blood pressure monitoring kits to Utah, once the facility is complete.
