Gilero Opens New Design Center in Athlone, Ireland
MORRISVILLE, N.C., September 1st, 2022 — Gilero, a contract design and development, and manufacturing firm specializing in medical and drug delivery devices, has announced the opening of a new Design Center in Athlone, Ireland.
The new location serves as the company’s fourth Design Center, adding a European presence to Gilero’s existing locations in the United States.
Ireland is rich with culture and is considered to be a gateway to Europe for many US businesses. Athlone will give Gilero greater access to the European market while allowing them to join a community that has proven to be successful within the MedTech industry. Located in the heart of Ireland, the new Design Center’s location will allow Gilero to conveniently support clients from Galway to Dublin and everywhere in between. The Ireland Design Center will provide the same high level of engineering expertise that Gilero is known for, with a strong focus on device design and product development.
“It will be great for Gilero to have a physical presence in Europe, as we already have such a globally focused business,” shares Megan Conley, Senior Product Development Engineer for Gilero who will be the Site Lead for the Athlone office. “On a personal note, I’m looking forward to immersing myself in the culture of the Midlands and learning more about Medical Device and Pharmaceutical advances in this area.” Megan joined the Gilero team in 2019, working at the company’s headquarters in Morrisville, North Carolina. She relocated to Athlone this year to oversee the opening of the new Design Center.
“We understand the importance of having a local presence worldwide,” adds Ted Mosler, CEO and Founder of Gilero.“ We have been serving European clients since Gilero’s inception, which is why we are very excited to have a dedicated office in Ireland to better accommodate these clients’ needs. We hope to add to the thriving and competitive environment that Ireland has already established within the MedTech and Pharma industries. This new Design Center will allow us to leverage local talent in the Midlands Region and communicate with our European customers in a time zone that is more convenient for them. Overall, we are looking forward to working with local Medical Device and Pharmaceutical companies to assist them with their design and development needs.”
