Young and yet experienced: our history

We are still young in years, but already rich in experience. For example, we know what growth and success feel like. The history of Novanta in Brno dates back to 2014. It all started with an R&D partnership between NDS Surgical Imaging, now part of Novanta, and IBSmm, a local developer of medical devices. The cooperation proved promising and Novanta recognized high potential and excellent workforce in Moravia. The Integrated Center for Corporate Shared Services and the EMEA NDS Service and Medical Devices Research and Development Center were established in early 2016.

To further boost growth in the region, Novanta acquired the local partner, increasing the R&D team to twelve. By the end of 2016, six more experts were added. In the summer of 2018, more than 40 experts were already working locally – and the trend is rising. The R&D team is now one of the pillars of NDS Surgical Imaging and part of the Minimally Invasive Surgery group within Novanta.
