The Med-Design Corporation, a leader in the design and development of safety-engineered needle products for medical use, has announced an agreement with Owens-Illinois (O-I) for O-I to manufacture Med-Design's Safety Dental Pre-filled Cartridge Injector.
Under terms of the agreement, Med-Design retains the opportunity to negotiate with additional third-party partners for the sales and distribution rights to the Safety Dental Pre-filled Cartridge Injector.
In September 2001, Med-Design announced its first OEM manufacturing agreement with O-I. The agreement stipulated that Med-Design provide its Safety Pre-filled Cartridge Injector to potential pharmaceutical partners as part of a previously signed co-promotion agreement with Abbott Laboratories.
"Once again, we are excited about teaming up with one of the world's leading glass and plastic packaging companies," said Jim Donegan, chairman and CEO of Med-Design. "Through this new agreement with Owens-Illinois, we will possess the capability to continue and provide our strategic partners with safety-engineered needle products manufactured at not only the highest quality, but also at a competitive price."
