Medtronic in Ireland
Medtronic have had a presence in Ireland since 1999. They acquired a Cardiovascular business which was established in Galway in 1982. The Galway site is now a centre of excellence for the development and manufacture of a number of the company’s key medical technologies for the treatment and management of cardiovascular and cardiac rhythm diseases.
Today over 2,500 people are employed by Medtronic in Ireland. Furthermore, the majority of the company’s employees work at the facility in Galway. There are over one hundred employees dedicated to research and development at the Galway base.
In September 2013, a Customer Innovation Centre was set up. This development provided state-of-the-art facilities for physicians and engineers to work together. Here, they would continue on developing new therapies that would improve clinical outcomes, provide economic value and increase access to quality healthcare for patients around the world.
Medtronic has a sales and shared services office in Dublin to support the Irish business.
