QMEDICS is a young Swiss-based medical device manufacturer founded in 2008. Our long year experience in the medical device industry has made us very flexible and highly capable of finding the optimum solution for every customer specific needs.
Ever since our foundation, we have been based in North-East of Switzerland, a region famous for technical innovations, with an international character and a sense of global trading. At the beginning of QMEDICS’ existence, QMEDICS offered contract R&D, manufacturing as well as OEM manufacturing for medical devices. As OEM manufacturer we developed, produced and supplied a workhorse of a Nitinol stent QM1 with the matching balloon catheter. This was the pride of the company and became the base of the new product portfolio of today.
In 2017 QMEDICS became an independent company with the opportunity to be legal manufacturer of our own new product portfolio and to do direct sales.
Since the know-how, engineers and production of this design are still at QMEDICS we could improve and expand our product portfolio within a minimum of time. Today the total facility has an area of over 2800m2 of production space, storage areas and offices, including two clean rooms with a total surface of 1200m2. The facility houses sophisticated machinery, EtO-sterilization as well as packaging and labelling equipment. Finally, dedicated, motivated and highly experienced employees.
