Officials at the Eitan Group want to disrupt the infusion pump market by selling devices that are more connected and software-based — able to be used not only in hospitals but in the home.
Eitan is probably best known for its Q Core Medical company that makes Sapphire infusion pumps, which have been around for more than a decade. But Netanya, Israel-based Eitan also has its Avoset Medical business, marketing what it describes as simple, easy-to-use pumps for home healthcare settings. Sorrel Medical, Eitan’s third subsidiary, makes a wearable injector device that delivers biological drugs for chronic diseases.
Eitan in coming years is looking to grow the $50 million in annual sales it’s averaged over the past three years. The company in March hired Roger Massengale, previously VP & GM of Avanos Medical (formerly Halyard Health) as its North American CEO. Eitan opened its U.S. headquarters in Aliso Viejo, Calif., in June and is expanding its team there.
