Our History

David Erikson and Rick Osterdyk started R & D Engineering and Machine in 2001. As a small business, it was their goal to create a company that serviced the booming medical device market in the Minnesota area. Over the years, R&D Engineering became a supplier of tooling, custom automation, catheter manufacturing equipment, and service to many of the world’s leading medical device companies. From its humble beginnings, R&D has developed a full line of Cath-Tech catheter manufacturing equipment that is installed worldwide. In 2017, R&D Engineering moved into a new facility in Brooklyn Park, MN, to expand its manufacturing capacity and technologies. In 2021 R&D was purchased by Medical Manufacturing Technologies (MMT).
