OCEANSIDE, Calif., Aug. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- AOTI Inc. announced today the opening of an expanded manufacturing facility in Galway, Ireland for the production of its patented Topical Wound Oxygen (TWO2) therapy devices. The new dedicated facility will be responsible for the manufacturing of the company's complete TWO2 therapy product range, including all the devices and associated consumables.
