Medical Manufacturing in a Digital System

November 17, 2020

Bio El Paso-Juárez (BIO EPJ) is a leading ecosystem for medical device manufacturing. Although the Covid-19 pandemic has affected many manufacturers in the region, BIO EPJ continues enhancing and improving the innovation, investment, and resilience of the medical device industry to increase its global competitiveness.

El Paso has helped local manufacturers meet regulatory standards for the production of medical technology, including but not limited to personal protective equipment. It has also enabled vendors in the regional medical device technology industry to enter the market.

First virtual medical devices trade show in El Paso- Juárez

Every year BIO EPJ offers a medical device summit, but this year due to the sanitary restrictions imposed by the government in view of the on-going pandemic, the event will take place in a safe virtual platform. BIO El Paso - Juarez will host the first virtual trade fair for medical devices in the border region.

This virtual trade show will allow local suppliers to make valuable connections with leading companies that might benefit from the El Paso-Juárez manufacturing capabilities, thus making it possible to link biotechnology companies with institutions to boost the local economy.

Over the years, BIO EPJ has been known as the best place to bring together manufacturing companies in the region to present them as a single group.

According to Hector Palacios, COO at RexMed Health, BIO El Paso - Juarez network has several benefits to offer to international companies that seek to produce near the United States. Because of the accelerated growth of BIO EPJ and the infrastructure as contract manufacturers, the region has been able to distinguish itself from other medical research parks.
