Made in Tucson: Inconspicuous Xeridiem
If you’ve ever had medical treatment involving a feeding tube or a urinary catheter – wince – it may well have been made right here in Tucson by Xeridiem Medical Devices.
But even if you’re a doctor, you may have never seen or heard the name Xeridiem, or its prior name, MRI Medical.
Xeridiem specializes in silicone-rubber-based medical devices, but rather than market its own branded products, the company specializes in developing and manufacturing products for other firms.
“Never have we branded a product, it’s always a contract-type of manufacturing arrangement,” said Joseph Lee, its president.
