Innovators that need prototypes or extrusions are having challenges getting the service they would like from the large company options and there are not enough small companies with these capabilities to support them.” “We have quickly built an extremely talented team that is driven to help our customers get their device to market and to the patients that need them,” added Matt Osten, Principal of LightningCath.
