MedPlast Expands and Invests

MedPlast's cleanroom focuses on Class 100,000 and Class 10,000 molding and assembly operations.

MedPlast (Tempe, AZ) has expanded its facility in Westfield, PA, with the addition of a cleanroom. The 45,000-sq-ft cleanroom houses Class 100,000 and Class 10,000 molding and assembly operations.

“MedPlast has extensive experience in thermoplastic and elastomer molding and assembly, enabling us to offer custom-designed products to our OEM partners,” says Rich Aiello, general manager of the Westfield facility. “The expansion will provide better service in a controlled environment for our customers that demand highly specialized products.”

The Westfield building offers contract thermoplastic and elastomer manufacturing for medical device OEMs. It is the latest completion in a series of expansions for the company. Earlier this year, MedPlast announced the expansion of its mold manufacturing facility in West Berlin, NJ. It added high-speed CNC machining centers and electrical-discharge machining equipment with robotic tool-changing capabilities. The plant was also redesigned and upgraded to optimize efficient work planning and further focus on clean manufacturing processes. Another expansion is currently under way at the Tempe manufacturing plant.

The firm has also become a shareholder of HS Design (Gladstone, NJ), a full-service design and development company that serves the medical device industry. According to MedPlast, the partnership allows the company to combine its engineering and manufacturing expertise with HS Design's specialties of product development, engineering, and design. MedPlast says that the alliance enables it to offer an integrated development process, decreased time to market, and cost-efficiencies to its clients.

“Many of our customers have complex requirements and need a custom plastic, synthetic, rubber, and silicone molding manufacturer with integrated development and design capabilities,” says Harold Faig, CEO of MedPlast. “Our investment in HS Design enables MedPlast to offer our customers a wide range of services and expertise that we would not have individually been able to provide.”

MedPlast specializes in medical and surgical disposables and other components used in fluid and IV delivery systems, such as drip chambers, Y-sites, and male and female luer adapters.
