Vention Medical, a leading full-service medical device outsourcing company, is acquiring Ansamed, Ireland's premier provider of advanced medical tubing solutions, including multilayer, co-extrusion and multi-lumen extrusion capabilities, and catheter design, development and manufacturing services.

The acquisition of Ansamed will expand Vention Medical's capabilities in the development and manufacturing of specialty catheter-based devices used in a range of interventional and surgical procedures.

Dan Croteau, Chief Executive Officer of Vention Medical, said: "Partnering with the Ansamed team is an extraordinary opportunity for us to further strengthen Vention’s ability to deliver innovative components and cost effective supply chain solutions to our medical device customers. The acquisition of Ansamed affirms our commitment to invest in leading minimally invasive technologies. They will be a great addition to our team."

The combined business will allow us to bring even more innovative and cost effective solutions to our mutual customers, as well as to new customers."
