He never lost his desire to make a difference in the welfare of other people’s lives and his engineering focus soon found its niche in the engineering space for medical devices.
“When I decided to go to uni, I wanted to get into the health-care space in one form or another. I thought about whether I should become a doctor, but engineering seemed more interesting to me because I also wanted to make a difference. Biomedical engineering seemed a perfect fit,” says Johnathon.
Romar is very advanced in the biomedical engineering field. With a large portfolio of products manufactured by Romar servicing the acute medical sector, it is a field that Johnathon is passionate about and one that gives him a great deal of satisfaction.
“I oversee a lot of the medical device related projects. I liaise with the customers and provide input within Romar from a technical and a compliance perspective (making sure we comply with all the regulatory and quality requirements) and I get to see the medical devices being manufactured and how they are used. I love it most when people come in with an idea – and our job starts. How can we design this? How are we going to manufacture?” says Johnathon.
