Putnam, Conn.-based Foster Corporation has introduced regional technical service and product development support in the Asia-Pacific region. Amar Nilajkar, a 10-year veteran of the company, will support medical device and pharmaceutical customers in the region from a newly established office in India.
The increase in catheter device manufacturing in the Asia-Pacific region has resulted in sales growth of nearly 300 percent for the company’s medical polymer compounds. These include polymers that provide visible under X-ray or fluoroscopy, antimicrobial polymers and low-friction polymers for minimally invasive catheters, laparoscopic devices, and surgical instruments.
Nilajkar holds a master’s degree in polymer engineering from University of Massachusetts at Lowell and has extensive polymer technologies and application experience from his positions in process engineering, application development engineering, product management and engineering management with Foster.
Foster Corporation was recently ranked in the Deloitte Technology Fast 500, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies in North America. Technology Fast 500 award winners are selected based on percentage fiscal year revenue growth from 2007 to 2011, during which time Foster experienced revenue growth of 149 percent.
