MediSurge, a medical device contract manufacturer within the Alliant Enterprise family of companies, announced today a strategic partnership with INRAD, a medical device product development, sales and marketing company. MediSurge will work with INRAD to take over all manufacturing of the company’s current line of products which includes biopsy needles and accessories. The partnership will allow INRAD to expand their product line into the surgical arena while bringing devices to market faster.
“This partnership will allow us to bring world class products here for development while keeping the manufacturing in the United States,” said Steve Field, President of INRAD. “We anticipate doubling our sales over the next 3 years as we expand our product offerings and find additional efficiencies in the manufacturing process. We are currently receiving product ideas from radiologists around the country and have licensed technology from University of Michigan for a product in the surgical market.”
As part of the alliance, MediSurge will hire current INRAD manufacturing staff which includes a quality assurance technician, manufacturing engineer and several operators.
“MediSurge is an ISO 13485 contract manufacturer focused on quality, results and efficiency,” said Dan Byers, General Manager of MediSurge. “Customer relationships are at the forefront of what we do, with a focus on saving money through our streamlined manufacturing process, expedited manufacturing lead times and lean principles. We get creative on taking the cost out of the entire supply chain. It’s that creativity that makes us unique.”
