Vincent Lagarde, a trained Plastics Engineer, is the Founder, Chairman and CEO of NATEC Medical Ltd. After a scientific baccalaureate and advanced Math preparatory classes (referred to as a prépa) he enrolls in the Ecole Nationale des Arts & Industries with a focus on Plastics Engineering.
He specialises in polymer, discovering this substance during an innovative time period, which enables him to create his first coronary dilatation catheter in 1993.
From 1993 to 1998, he is a Senior Project and Development Manager at Nycomed Amersham, where he develops patented technologies still used today.
In 1998, he founds NATEC Medical LLC in Boston (United-States). Lacking the funding necessary to kick off his project in France, he moves to the United-States where, for several years, he essentially develops catheters for interventional cardiology.
Spurred by his industry experience in the field of medical technology, he relocates his operations to Mauritius in 2000 along with ten employees. NATEC Medical Ltd has successfully transitioned from a start-up to an innovative and dynamic enterprise with more than 215 collaborators.
The enterprise is specialised in the manufacture of cutting-edge percutaneous interventional devices and minimally invasive medical technology. It conceives and manufactures angioplasty balloon catheters destined for interventional cardiology, interventional radiology, gastroenterology, and urology.
He is a member of the Club APM (Association for the Progress of Management) and of the CCIFM (Chambre de Commerce Franco-mauricienne)
