[Laramie, Wyoming, December 16, 2020] – Disruptive MedTech LLC is celebrating its first anniversary of business this week. DMTI came into being after a group of businessmen realized the desire of hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers to work directly with the manufacturers of their implantable devices. A clear gap in the market was seen and it was believed DMTI could, with the right infrastructure and expertise fill that gap.
The Early Days
DMTI spent its early days in the IMPACT 307 building, formerly the Wyoming Business and Technology Center on the University of Wyoming Campus. In that business incubator DMTI began working with Marrow Access Technologies to bring to market its SmartShot device through DMTI’s contract manufacturing arm. The company also partners in sales with Mahe Medical USA.
With the progression of the Covid-19 Virus and closing of surgery centers, DMTI pivoted to provide the highest quality Personal Protection Equipment to facilities throughout the United States. That work continues as does the development of new technologies and devices aimed at lowering costs and increasing the quality of medical treatment provided by our clients.
The company has enjoyed the support of the Laramie Chamber Business Alliance, Albany County, and the Wyoming Business Council over the year. This support has led to growth in employees and a move to its new facility on Beech Street in Laramie. There the team has built a clean room, production and staging areas, and warehousing to take the company into the future.
“I’m very proud of what our team members have accomplished in our first year of business. Even with all the challenges and headwinds of 2020, we’ve been able to grow the business to 10 employees, get our ISO 13845 certification, and become an FDA registered manufacturer,” said DMTI Managing Director Dave Rechberger. ”That is on top of the sheer physicality of remodeling and opening a new building, certifying a Class 7 clean room, and managing logistical challenges of suppliers, customers, and inventories during a pandemic.”
DMTI team members are busy planning for their next year in Laramie and for many years to come.
“As I look forward at 2021, DMTI is poised for explosive growth based on the foundations we’ve set in our first year,” Rechberger said. ”I look forward to continuing to work with our world class employees, customers, and suppliers.”
