Fast Five: MedTorque Inc.

2016 Ovation Awards


MedTorque Inc.
Industry: Medical device, orthopedic implants and surgical instruments
Address: 5601 95th Ave., Kenosha
Employees: 103 (39 in Kenosha)


In the past three years, MedTorque Inc. has tripled its staff, doubled its sales and solidified its commitment to the Kenosha area and its passion for providing quality products with superior customer service.

Today, the company has sales approaching $20 million and has office locations in Kenosha and Chicago.

The Kenosha facility continues to focus on the development of specialized orthopedic surgical instruments, including silicone-handled ratcheting and torque limiting drivers, and recently began manufacturing implants and other types of surgical instruments.

MedTorque was founded in 2005 and quickly garnered a strong reputation for delivering high-quality products with exceptional customer service.

“Our existing customers have really been driving our growth,” said Chad Ryshkus, director of marketing and business development. “We’ve been working to expand our customer base while maintaining that commitment to quality and service that’s at the core of the company.”

MedTorque joined forces with Chicago-based precision machining company Inland Midwest Corp. in 2012, and was eventually acquired by Strong Precision Technologies.

Under current president and chief executive officer Steven Sundberg, who was named president and CEO of SPT in 2014, the two companies divested from SPT corporate and combined efforts under the MedTorque banner.

In 2014, the company moved to its current 20,000-square-foot location in Kenosha, with plenty of room for growth, Ryshkus said.
