MCA Foundation hires Product Development Lab Manager

The Medical Center of the Americas (MCA) Foundation recently brought on Philip Morton, a mechanical engineer and entrepreneur, to the team as the Product Development Lab Manager.

Morton will manage the upcoming Product and Supplier Development Lab which will support innovators, startups, suppliers, and manufacturers working on medtech product development and manufacturing.

“The development and manufacture of new products can have enormous impact for individual companies and the region as a whole. However, the process is laden with pitfalls. With Philip Morton on board, we hope to help innovators and established companies navigate this process and launch successful products”, says Nancy Lowery, Senior Director of Innovation.

Morton brings a wealth of experience in research and development projects for a variety of industries such as medical devices, defense, and consumer goods to support the launch of this new initiative. He is passionate about using his skills and experience to help build a technology-based economy in his hometown of El Paso, Texas.

“El Paso has great potential in the manufacturing sector to provide high-wage, high-skill jobs,” says Morton, “Bringing more engineering into the jobs of the region is important for El Paso, Las Cruces, and Juarez. Ideally, we hope to show big companies that El Paso is a place where big things happen to bring more investment into the region.”

Officials add that there will be forthcoming announcements on the different initiatives that the MCA Foundation will be launching in September 2021.
