Founded in 1995, Albright Technologies initially focused on making plastic prototypes for the medical device industry. But in 2005, Albright said it made a strategic decision to transition from plastic to silicone, a more bio-inert material. Today the company has 15 employees, a clean room, a machine shop, and a molding room.

In a statement, Comeau said: “Bob Waitt has been my partner for the last 5 years and has had an integral role in growing the company into what it is today; I am happy now to be turning the company over to him. Bob started with the company in 2000, and has had many positions over his years at Albright allowing him to learn all aspects of the company. I have great confidence that he will continue to move Albright forward and keep it growing to its full potential.”
