SOUTH JORDAN, Utah, July 31, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — In 1987, Fred Lampropoulos, founder of the South Jordan-based business Merit Medical Systems, planted a seed, with the not-so-simple idea of developing and distributing precision medical devices worldwide.
Three decades later, the $600 million company is a thriving global concern, employing thousands and generating a half-billion dollars in sales annually.
Now, Lampropoulos and the leadership of Merit Medical Supply are planting another seed — the development of an employee garden, one of the largest in the United States.
Our own Bill Gephardt took a tour of the budding enterprise, and if employee reaction is any indication, the project is already a blooming success.
