2011 Suppliers

MDEA Supplier Logo

The winning medical technology companies in the fourteenth annual Medical Design Excellence Awards (MDEA) competition often owe much of their success to the efforts of the suppliers and designers who worked with them to develop their innovative medical devices.

MDEA suppliers operate in a wide range of areas. Design firms, materials suppliers, component manufacturers, and consulting firms all play a vital role in the development of award-winning products. The MDEA competition acknowledges the contributions of named suppliers through a program designed especially to honor the companies that support MDEA-winning products. In keeping with the global scope of the medical device industry, seventeen of the 2011 supplier companies are from outside the United States, representing Australia (1), Austria (1), Denmark (1), Germany (1), India (1), Ireland (1), New Zealand (3), Philippines (1), Spain (3), and United Kingdom (4).

MDEA suppliers earn the exclusive right to use the designations “2011 MDEA Supplier” or “Supplier to a 2011 MDEA Winner,” and to display the special MDEA supplier logo in their promotional materials and exhibit booths.

The following guide provides contact information for the 44 named suppliers to 2011 MDEA-winning products. The information provided here was current at the time the honor was presented but has not been updated. For the most current information about these suppliers, visit Qmed’s online directory via www.qmed.com. Qmed is the world's only directory of pre-qualified suppliers to the medical device and in vitro diagnostics industry.
