The Med Tech sector is evolving. In part, this is powered by the cutting-edge magic of additive manufacturing or 3D printing as it is more commonly known.

Fusing technology and medicine, global Med Tech company, Zimmer Biomet is at the leading edge of this change & is driving its mission to alleviate pain worldwide.

3D printing fuses materials together using laser technology, layer-by-layer, to construct a final product. This allows flexibility in the design process and enables efficient production of both off-the-shelf and personalized medical devices.

At the heart of this exciting transformation lies Zimmer Biomet’s Oranmore site, where creativity & ingenuity combined with a highly professional Engineering & Operations team have launched several successful products to the market.

“In recent times, we have invested heavily in this cutting-edge technology. Our team members not only get to work with the latest technology, but they are also proud to be advancing the quality of patient care and increasing the efficacy of healthcare, globally,” said Tom O’Carroll Manufacturing Director, Ireland.

Zimmer Biomet established a presence in Ireland in 2008, opening a facility in Shannon Co. Clare, which now employs over 500 people. In 2015 they opened a second facility in Oranmore Co. Galway, bringing the total employed close to 1100 people across both sites.

The sites produce products including Knee, Hip & Shoulder replacement implants, are distributed worldwide and eventually sold in more than 100 countries.

Our success can be attributed to our talented and culturally diverse team, our relentless focus on quality, investment in leading edge technology, and our strong culture of innovation and continuous improvement.
