Genesis Plastics Welding Expands Medical Cleanroom

Genesis Plastics Welding (Indianapolis), a provider of radio frequency (RF) plastics welding and RF heat-sealing services, has completed a $500,000 expansion of its Class 7 cleanroom. By doubling the size of its cleanroom, the company will be able to increase RF plastic welding and heat sealing of medical devices, supplies, and equipment.
 
The medical cleanroom initiative is one component of the company's larger expansion strategy. Over the last year, the company has been gearing up for anticipated growth, appointing Tom Ryder as the new president and CEO and upping investment in key vertical markets. The next steps include adding 50,000 sq ft of production space and hiring approximately 50 additional employees.
 
"Our expanded medical clean room is the cornerstone on our new strategic direction," Ryder says. "With an emphasis on the healthcare/medical market, our medical cleanroom represents a distinct differentiator in the worldwide medical device, supplies, and equipment sector. In addition, our Midwest location gives us an added advantage of assisting the U.S. healthcare/medical market with logistics cost savings."
 
Genesis's expanded clean facility meets the medical device cleanroom requirements of an ISO Class 7 Standard 14644 zone for particle-count testing. It can be used to perform a range of plastic heat-sealing processes, including impulse welding, sonic welding, and RF welding of both polar and nonpolar materials. Thermoplastic heat sealing of nonpolar materials is achieved using the company's proprietary ecoGenesis technology.  
 
Genesis produces Class I, II, and III medical devices and subcomponents, including inflatable components, oxygen hoods, surgical instrument covers, compression therapy and DVT sleeves, cooling caps, disposable warming blankets, cooling therapy products, fluid bladders, drainage bags, and medical balloons.
