The new US platform, embedded in the heart of the Turner Medical production facility in Athens, AL., has been designed to serve the US market and provide highly personalized customer care.

The acquisition of Turner Medical, Inc. in June 2015 made the Prototype Garage USA expansion possible, to the delight of our current and forthcoming US customers.”
"The creation of the Prototype Garage division at the heart of our manufacturing facility here in Athens, Alabama, combined with the integration of the In’Tech Medical expertise and know-how in prototyping, is a competitive advantage that addresses a growing need in the marketplace,” added Bill Turner, President of Turner Medical, Inc. “The new US Prototype Garage Division further connects us to our customers as we strive to continuously manufacture high quality devices, while saving them time and money.”
