Meril offers a diversified product portfolio with over 100 technologies in five therapy areas cardiovascular including structural heart devices, orthopedic implants, endo-surgery, surgical robotics and in-vitro diagnostics. It employs over 4,000 employees and has business in over 100 countries and has subsidiaries in the US, Germany, Brazil, Russia, South Africa, Bangladesh, Turkey, China and Japan.
