Episode 9: Josh Arant, Chief Operating Officer, Mako Medical
Heather and Matthew sit down with Mako Medical COO Josh Arant to learn about how COVID-19 sparked innovation for an N.C.-based medical manufacturer. Business was booming - then COVID hit, bringing production to a near stand-still. Now, Mako is producing COVID-19 tests in record numbers, and business is booming in ways Josh never could have imagined a year ago. We chat about the process of becoming licensed to produce these tests, what the current virus testing market looks like, as well as a bit more about Mako's work as a stateside medical product manufacturer.
