Our mission in Bio El Paso-Juárez
The global biomedical industry has grown exponentially over the past few years, especially given the recent global pandemic and supply chain constraints. The El Paso-Juarez region is one of the largest exporters of medical products to the United States. However, the legacy manufacturers in the region need to explore new horizons to remain competitive on a global scale. Engaging with Devise Product Realization Hub will provide resources to innovate and expand product offerings for legacy manufacturers.
