New Hampshire’s Life Sciences Companies Out in Front of Their Next Customers at Industry Trade Show

Monday, May 8th, 2017

Some of the New Hampshire companies attending the BIOMEDevice trade show in Boston last week included New England Catheter; New England Wire Technologies; J-Pac Medical; Sunrise Labs, Vaupell; Cirtronics; MedeFab; Resonetics

Life sciences is one of New Hampshire’s key industries and it’s growing. About 6,800 people are employed in this sector, 10 percent above the national average and the average annual earnings are over $100,000.

That is great data, but behind the data are the companies that are fueling our economy and making our lives easier and safer with the products they make. Last week at the BIOMEDevice trade show in Boston, I was pleased to see and talk to so many New Hampshire companies at this event and I am sure to see them again next month.

That’s when one of the industry’s biggest medtech trade shows, MD&M East (booth 1156), gets underway in New York City June 13-15 and we’ll be there to promote the strengths of our life sciences sector and why New Hampshire is great place for companies considering expansion or relocation.

With such a strong and growing sector now, the New Hampshire High Technology Council established a BioTech/MedTech cluster to bring together these companies to ensure the industry continues its robust growth.

Register today for the inaugural BioTech/Medtech event May 18 in Portsmouth.

It kicks off its first networking event in Portsmouth at Medtronic on May 18 with guest panelists:
• Suzanne Foster, vice president and general manager of the Advanced Energy Business Unit at Medtronic, a global leader in medical device technology.

• Herve Berdou, site head of Lonza, a global supplier to the pharmaceutical, biotech and specialty ingredients markets.

• Tom Burns, CEO of Resonetics, a leader in laser micro manufacturing for life sciences.

• Christina Ferrari, attorney for Bernstein Shur, a Manchester-based law firm that specializes in regulatory, privacy and cybersecurity.

Please register on the link above; I hope to see you at this inaugural event.

Business Development Team Touts New Hampshire’s Life Sciences Industry at Medical Design & Manufacturing East

Tuesday, June 14th, 2016

New Hampshire front and center at the MD&M East trade show in New York City.

The annual Medical Design & Manufacturing East (MD&M East) expo opened a few minutes ago at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City and for the first of the expected 11,000 people expected to visit the trade show over the next two days, this banner greeted them.

New Hampshire. A Healthy Place to Grow Your Business.

Life sciences, including medical device manufacturing and a range of other capabilities, is one of our key industries.

In 2015, there were 6,992 jobs in 272 establishments here in this state, in this sector; 15 percent above the national average. Between now and 2020, New Hampshire is projected to see about 8 percent growth, compared to 6.2 percent nationwide.

New Hampshire has a lot to offer companies in the business of life sciences, so our business development team – Cindy Harrington and Michael Bergeron – is at MD&M East to tell people about it and our business friendly climate.

If you are attending, drop by Booth 757 and visit with them.
