Garry Moore recognised with Outstanding Contribution to Medtech Award 2019

December 09, 2019

The Irish Medtech Association, the Ibec group which represents the medtech sector, recognised SteriPack Contract Manufacturing founder and CEO Garry Moore, as the winner of the Outstanding Contribution to Medtech Award 2019. This award recognises an individual who has made a significant contribution to the development, growth and success of the medtech sector in Ireland. The recipient of this coveted award is selected by the Irish Medtech Association Board, with the support of Enterprise Ireland and IDA Ireland, to acknowledge a person's contribution to the sector as a whole, rather than to any one company or organisation.

Irish Medtech Association Director Sinead Keogh said: “Garry Moore is a well-respected and well-liked member of the Irish medtech community. Garry is known by many for founding the Offaly-based business SteriPack, which made sterile packaging for the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries with factories in Europe, the US and Asia. The packaging division was bought by US-Bemis Healthcare in 2016. Garry retained the contract manufacturing division which he now operates as SteriPack Contract Manufacturing with nearly 700 employees globally and continues to grow.

“Garry Moore is more than an accomplished Chief Executive, he is probably best known for his incredible generosity, helping both entrepreneurs and Ireland’s global medtech hub to thrive. He has shared his experience sitting on numerous industry advisory committees including, the Irish Medtech Association Board, IBEC Midlands Group , the Action Plan for Jobs, LEO, and the Mullingar Chamber of Commerce, as well as participating in Enterprise Ireland workshops for start-ups. He’s also shown incredible focus working tirelessly to attract investment and support growth in the midlands by leading the National Life Sciences & Engineering Expo in Mullingar and helping to set-up the new National Science Park there too. It was with great pleasure that we awarded Garry Moore the Outstanding Contribution to Medtech Award 2019 at Medtech Rising, in Galway on 5th December.
