Johnson Medtech Opens Four New Cleanrooms

Johnson Medtech says its plans for an added work area should also complement the firm's manufacturing, supply chain, and logistic management capabilities.

Johnson Medtech, the medical products arm of Johnson Electric, has opened four new cleanrooms in Shajing, China. According to a spokesman for Johnson Electric, the cleanroom facilities will increase the company's medical manufacturing capacity by 1 million additional Class II and Class III medical devices and subassemblies per year to address increasing demand.

“With the demand for our design and medical device contract manufacturing services continually increasing, these new cleanrooms will help us deliver the highest-quality medical devices with the fastest time to market,” says Robert Hoctor, vice president of medical devices for Johnson Electric.

The four cleanrooms added to Johnson Medtech's facility total 14,000 m2 on three floors.

The cleanrooms encompass 14,000 m2 on three floors. One cleanroom is a Class 1000 cleanroom equipped with an air shower. The other three are Class 100,000 cleanrooms. An engineering office, a testing laboratory, and a document control room were also part of the expansion.

The firm is also set to begin construction of an additional control manufacturing area, which will provide an assembly line and plastic injection workshop. The site is intended to boost the company's design, engineering, prototyping, and testing capabilities. The added work area should also complement the firm's manufacturing, supply chain, and logistic management capabilities.

Johnson Medtech has ISO 13485–certified manufacturing facilities in the United States, China, and the UK.
