In 2015, we acquired Creagh Medical, an innovative developer and manufacturer of balloon catheters located in Ireland’s medical technology beltway. This world-class design, development and high-volume manufacturing facility has unique expertise in PTA balloon technology, producing the highest-pressure conventional balloons and most deliverable low-profile catheters on the market.

We attract some of the world’s most skilled and talented resources, with extensive medical device experience ranging from polymer science, mechanical design, and product design engineering.

Our PTA products are approved in Europe, the United States, Japan, and other countries throughout the world.
