McGlynn will build on his extensive experience in high volume medical device manufacturing, having worked across the entire product lifecycle, from concept, development, and operations, and brings particular expertise in coordinate measuring machines (CMMs), gauging and CT scanning to the company.

“Ireland is one of the largest exporters of medical devices in Europe and it has a world-class aerospace sector,” explains Mike John, managing director at The Sempre Group. “We have been dedicated to delivering quality metrology solutions and services to customers throughout Ireland for many years, and, to further this thriving market, we are now investing significantly in our Irish operations.”

Adds McGlynn: “As the complexity of products increases, manufacturers need a high quality measurement service provider that understands the entire product lifecycle. Bringing a product to market is a significant investment and, at the moment, it is difficult for Irish manufacturers to access the local metrology support they need from one single provider. The Sempre Group will provide Irish manufacturing companies with this much needed support.”

The Sempre Group was known as Metrology Direct.
