Bolton Medical to Launch in U.S., Add 100 Jobs


1/9/2013 8:43:38 AM

Sunrise, FL – Today, Governor Rick Scott was joined by CEO of Bolton Medical Solutions Oscar Rospigliosi, Sunrise Mayor Michael Ryan, and Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance CEO Bob Swindell to announce the creation and retention of over 100 jobs by Bolton Medical Solutions. Prior to the announcement, the Governor toured the Bolton medical facility that is home to the production of Relay Thoracic Stent-Grafts.

Governor Scott said, “Each job created or retained by Bolton Medical Solutions is another paycheck for another Florida family. We are proud of the work that Bolton Medical is doing here in Sunrise, both for the patients who lives depend on their devices and the employees who work there. Creating an environment that encourages job growth and business development is one of my priorities as Governor. While we are not done, this is another step in the right direction.”

The Governor’s visit is in conjunction with the Greater Ft. Lauderdale Alliance, a public/private partnership for economic development. He will tour their state-of-the-art development and manufacturing facility, located in Sunrise, Florida, which manufactures the RelayThoracic Stent-Graft, a minimally invasive treatment for thoracic aortic aneurysms.

Governor Scott’s visit Bolton Medical follows their recent announcement of FDA clearance of the Relay Thoracic Stent-Graft with Plus Delivery System.

The Relay Thoracic Stent-Graft is the latest life-saving technology offered to patients with Thoracic Aortic Aneurysms. It is paired with the Plus Delivery System, a unique four-step delivery device that allows surgeons to achieve a more satisfactory placement of the stent-graft on a range of different patients. In addition, the Relay Stent-Graft itself is specially designed to fit a range of sizes and anatomical situations within the thoracic aorta.

“We’re proud to have developed and be manufacturing this cutting edge medical device in South Florida”, states Bolton Medical CEO and General Manager, Oscar Rospigliosi ” We believe that U.S. physicians will benefit tremendously from access to the latest medical technology of the Relay Thoracic Stent-Graft with Plus Delivery System.”
