Genesis Plastic Welding’s Tom Ryder Talks 2019 Outlook

2019 is looking bright for many industries, including medical device. Industry experts predict overall revenue growth driven by continued innovation and emerging technologies.

With ever-narrowing margins and increased competition, strategic outsourcing bridges the gap quickest and most efficiently.

Additionally, industry leaders outside of medical device are setting their sights on acquisition and targeting the purchase of medical-based companies in order to diversify and break into the lucrative market.
