Aerospace firm lands $1.6M medical device pact

Micronet Enertec Technologies has secured a purchase order of approximately $1.6 million during the month of January, according to a statement from the company.

The contract came through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Enertec Systems 2001 Ltd., and promises the Montvale company will develop and produce fully automated testing systems for medical calibration devices treating heart rhythm disorders.

To date, Enertec has received $3 million in medical device orders. Going forward, Micronet President David Lucatz said, the company hopes to grow its device applications beyond heart rhythm disorders.

“These purchase orders mark the largest orders ever received by Enertec in the medical device space and, we believe, further illustrate Enertec’s expertise in automated testing systems for critical applications,” he said. “As a result, we expect that the growth in the medical device space will contribute to our solid backlog and pipeline in the aerospace and defense industry,”
