Medtronic

“What makes Galway stand out as an attractive location for Medtronic is its strong talent pool as well as the spirit of collaboration with industry, academia, local authorities, national government agencies and the business and hospitality sectors.

As a Centre of Excellence for manufacturing, research & development and customer engagement for the company’s Cardiac and Vascular Business, it is important for us to have the opportunity to engage locally with NUIG and GMIT on research and new product development programmes and education programmes ensuring a strong talent pipeline for the future.”

Zimmer Biomet

“The Galway area has a strong third level infrastructure with NUI Galway and GMIT”.

“Our products are technically challenging to manufacture and having access to the brightest mechanical and bio-medical engineers is very positive.”

“That skillset and the flexibility of the workforce allowed production to ramp up very quickly and achieve productivity levels higher than most of the company’s other facilities.”
