Merit Medical

Merit Medical

Founded in 1987, Merit Medical Systems, Inc. develops, manufactures and markets single-use medical devices primarily for diagnosing and treating cardiovascular and vascular disease.  Merit has been successful in introducing and marketing innovative, high-quality products through its expertise in new product design and its capabilities in injection and insert molding of plastics; the application of its proprietary electronic and sensor-based technologies; and wire, extrusion and catheter technologies.


Headquartered in South Jordan, Utah, Merit has expanded from a small manufacturing facility to five separate facilities. The Company has facilities in Salt Lake City and South Jordan, Utah; Angleton, Texas; Richmond, Virginia; Maastricht and Venlo, The Netherlands; Paris, France; Galway, Ireland; Beijing, China; Copenhagen, Denmark; and Rockland, Massachusetts.


Merit employs approximately 2,400 people worldwide and serves client hospitals with a domestic and international sales force totaling approximately 130 individuals as well as select distributors. 


Merit’s Galway facility at Parkmore West was established in 1996 and currently employs over 400 people. This number has increased by 40% over the last two years and is expected to increase further. Its successful development of a number of new products in the guidewire range led to its designation as the Centre-of-Excellence for guidewire technologies.  Over the years, the facility has grown and developed and is now the principal manufacturing site for another of Merit’s products - inflation devices.


In May 2012, Merit Galway opened a new €20m facility at the Parkmore Business Park East, which doubles the capacity of Merit in Galway.   The new investment will allow the expansion of R&D and other activities at its Merit Medical Ireland subsidiary.  The new jobs created will be in R&D, shared services, operations support and manufacturing.

Please describe the problem with this review.




I started working at Merit as a temporary file clerk. I was so impressed with the company and the working environment that I hired on permanently. I can honestly say I wouldn't want to work anywhere other than Merit. Our company has grown over the years, and it has been reassuring to know that, through the ups and downs, our CEO Fred Lampropoulos truly cares about his employees.

I came to work for Merit right out of college in 2004. Merit has been instrumental in my personal growth and advancement as a professional. I am surrounded by many talented individuals who are willing to share their knowledge and expertise with me on a daily basis. I also enjoy the people that I work with; the culture here is very much like “family”. We are all committed to the values and vision of this great company, and I am proud to be a part of it.
