BEAVERCREEK, OHIO — Ernie Green Industries Inc.'s subsidiary eNNOVEA Medical has signed an alliance with a maker of medical devices that will see it invest $2.5 million into the firm and taking a 26 percent ownership in PercuVision LLC.

The alliance with Columbus, Ohio-based PercuVision will help both firms create more cost-competitive products and increase the sales and marketing efforts of the PercuVision direct vision catheter, the companies announced in a March 22 news release.

The alliance also will build on production capabilities of EGI, a molder based in Beavercreek, Ohio, and help it expand in the health care industry, supporting existing products and developing new ones.
