The company specializes in the design, development and manufacturing of innovative medical applications.

The 4,000 square foot facility will be home to the company’s sales, design and development activities.
Medical Murray plans to have the facility fully operational by March 2013.
The strategic location will allow the company to expand their presence to the Southeast.

Tanner Hargens, regional vice president, will head the new operation. Hargens has over eight years experience in medical device engineering and specializes in implants, bio-materials, and minimally-invasive procedures. Hargens will provide the company expertise related to commercializing medical products including patent protection and regulatory strategizing.
“Our mission is to increase our support of the medical community and the need for highly complex device requirements from concept to production,” said Hargens. “This operation will allow us to further embrace new and existing customers in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic, and continue to advance the betterment of patient care.”
