Contamac: John McGregor Announces Retirement to Industry

Contamac’s founder and chairman, John McGregor, is retiring from his position, 34 years after he first produced a contact lens blank in his garden shed.

The company has grown substantially over the years, now the world’s largest manufacturer of contact lens and intraocular lens materials, and a leading innovator in the development of biomedical polymers.

Due to the global pandemic, John was unable to visit customers and friends around the world for a personal goodbye. Instead, it has to be a virtual one.

John reflects on the company’s progression and delivers a message of thanks as he bids farewell to the industry.
