David Erikson and Rick Osterdyk started from small and simple means back in 2001 to create R & D Engineering and Machine. 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 has become a supplier to many of the world’s leading medical device companies in the areas of tooling, custom automation, catheter manufacturing equipment, and service. From its humble beginnings, R&D has developed a full line of Cath-Tech catheter manufacturing equipment and has hundreds of machines installed across the world. In 2017, R&D Engineering moved into a new facility in Brooklyn Park, MN to expand its manufacturing capacity and technologies.
