It was announced today that Sahajanand Medical Technologies (SMT) is to establish its European headquarters in Galway, creating 50 jobs over five years.
 
SMT is largest developer and manufacturer of minimally invasive coronary stent systems in India and supplies to around 60 countries in Europe, Asia, MENA and Latin America.

The company has received numerous awards for their breakthrough innovations and quality that have led to more thinner and flexible DES with good long term clinical results.
 
Minister of State for Gaeltacht Affairs and Natural Resources, Sean Kyne TD, who attended today’s announcement said, "The decision by SMT to choose Galway as its European headquarters and create 50 jobs is a further vote of confidence in the City and County which has deservedly earned a reputation as a medical technologies hub."

He added, "Companies such as SMT, which are pioneers in their fields, are attracted to Galway and the West for many reasons, not least the strong, vibrant and varied research being undertaken at our local higher education institutions."
