Ron Luther's prized gift from close friends at his 60th birthday bash in April was a customized Monopoly game, dubbed Ronopoly. Each space marked a major event in Luther's life--his discharge from the Marines, his daughter's birth--and in his company--his first patent, his founding of Luther Medical Products Inc. All the spaces are filled, but Luther said his story hasn't ended. "We're going to have to get a new game," Luther said. "I'm not over yet."

Inventor Ronald B. Luther, whose former company, Luther Medical Products Inc., was sold recently to New Jersey-based Becton Dickinson & Co., announced Tuesday that he has started a new company to compete in the worldwide market for catheters that fit over needles. Luther's former company, based in Tustin, changed hands in a $16.6-million deal and is expected to be relocated to Salt Lake City soon. The 20-year-old company has been a leading manufacturer of IV catheters.

November 3, 1988
Luther Medical Products Inc. on Thursday reported its first profitable quarter in the Tustin company's 8 1/2-year history, posting net earnings of $36,000 for the first quarter of its 1989 fiscal year. By contrast, the company had a loss of $121,000 for the same quarter a year ago. However, sales dropped to $608,000 from $682,000 for the first quarter of fiscal 1988, due primarily to discontinuation of a product line.
