A STRONG PAST AND
EVEN STRONGER FUTURE

LONGYEAR

Able Medical Devices is backed by Longyear, a privately held Michigan-based asset manager with a 145-year track record for growing long term value. In addition to the medical device industry, Longyear operates across a spectrum of markets and asset classes.

As a long term investor and employer, Longyear has, is and will continue to support prosperity in our community where they directly employ about 140 people and hundreds of contractors.  The company’s success continues to be driven by its long term investment horizon and solid asset management combined with an opportunistic growth strategy.

As Able looks to the future, Longyear’s ongoing financial stability will continue to provide the foundation for growth, acquisitions, and expansion, and chart a solid path forward.

MISSION STATEMENT

Able Medical Devices is a reliable partner in medical device manufacturing and development. We create solutions to improve quality of life for our customers, support our community, and produce value...for a lifetime.

COMMITMENT TO OUR COMMUNITY

Able Medical was started to create jobs in our picturesque hometown of Marquette, Michigan, which sits on the shore of Lake Superior. We will always remain committed to our amazing community through job creation and philanthropy.

We believe Michigan’s Upper Peninsula is the greatest place in America to live! The Able team maintains a work-life balance that allows us to think and innovate.

Partnering with local universities and a strong medical community, we have access to the region’s brightest talent.

We can't imagine doing business anywhere else!
