About Us


Atrion’s technical expertise is reflected in every one of our products.

About Us

Atrion Medical Products, Inc. began with a company founded in 1968 behind a humble pizza shop in Chicago, IL, by entrepreneur Frank Ryder.  The company relocated to North Alabama in 1974 and registered with the FDA in 1976 to begin manufacturing medical devices with the invention of several ophthalmic contact lens cases.

Atrion Medical was acquired by Atrion Corporation (NASDAQ:ATRI) in 1994. Today, we remain a key supplier to the ophthalmic industry, but our primary focus is providing high pressure inflation devices and fluid delivery products to leading medical device, pharmaceutical and biotech companies who include our proprietary products as an integral part of their technology.

Our FDA Registered manufacturing site is located on a 110 acre campus and has 116,000 square feet of manufacturing space, including a state-of-the art injection molding facility and 4,000 square feet of ISO Class 8 controlled environment space.

Throughout our 50 years of growth and change at Atrion Medical Products, Inc., one thing has remained constant: A never ending passion for excellence. Whether developing a creative design approach for a new medical product, molding a plastic component or assembling a finished device in a CE room, we are never happy until our customer is satisfied.
