About Us

R & D Engineering

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.

The R & D Engineering team has more than 40 years of collective experience in the design and manufacture custom machines and tooling for the medical device market. Our experience, capabilities, and knowledge enable us to work across various processes and applications. Our focus and expertise is in providing catheter manufacturing equipment and custom automation to improve our customer’s quality and productivity. Our team has expertise in process design, programing, process development, automation, product manufacturer, and customer service.
