Press Release : Nemera acquires Insight Product DevelopmentAugust 8, 2019
Nemera acquires Insight Product Development to strengthen its capabilities in early stage development and to reinforce client proximity in North America.
We are pleased to announce that Nemera has completed the acquisition of Insight Product Development, a 100% healthcare focused design and innovation consulting firm based in Chicago, IL (USA).
Insight delivers innovation in both medical and drug delivery devices services spanning the full development life cycle from early user research and human factors through to verification and design transfer. For decades, Insight Product Development has helped clients discover, innovate, and develop new product solutions through a user-centered design approach.
This set of capabilities will perfectly complement Nemera’s well established design center in La Verpillière (France). Located close to Nemera’s GMP manufacturing facility in Buffalo Grove, IL (USA), this strategic acquisition brings a strong development footprint in North America and significantly improves proximity to North America based customers.
The combination of both innovation organizations combines the strengths of Insight Product Development in front-end innovation, design research, human factors and design engineering with Nemera’s strong late-stage development, as well as clinical and commercial manufacturing capabilities. These newly enhanced capabilities enable Nemera to now offer complete end to end development services to all its customers globally and to collaborate with them earlier, supporting their complex drug delivery and medical device projects.
From today, Insight Product Development becomes an integral part of the newly branded Nemera’s “Insight Innovation Center”, with offices in La Verpillière, France and Chicago, IL.
Nemera’s Insight Innovation Center will leverage a large cross-disciplinary team of 150 passionate and dedicated innovation experts to develop tailored solutions across multiple device platforms, reflecting Nemera’s vision to put patients first through user centered research and design.
