Trelleborg Medical Solutions announces the launch of its Innovation Center in Plymouth, Minnesota, US. An expansion of the former Rapid Development Center, it provides Trelleborg’s global healthcare and medical customers with a single facility for design, rapid prototyping, development, and serial production, ensuring cost control and scalability of customers’ solutions.

Trelleborg created the Innovation Center to accelerate customers’ time to market, reduce the production cost of parts already in the market, and improve the transition from design to serial production. With increased capabilities, the Innovation Center is a dedicated space with personnel possessing decades of combined experience and expertise in all areas of medical device component manufacturing. It enables healthcare and medical customers to work with design, materials, and quality experts throughout the entire life cycle of a project.

Chris Tellers, Global Technology Director, Trelleborg Medical Solutions, said: “For healthcare and medical innovators looking to create high-performing products and measurably reduce go-to-market timelines, our team at the Innovation Center can create samples in days, enabling multiple design iterations to be tested to confirm effective production and rapid scale up.

“Engineers and product innovators get direct access to some of the best minds in materials science, prototyping, tooling, and design for manufacturability, plus proven processes for improving critical outcomes in development and manufacturing. Simply bring us your product design goals and we will work together to create highly differentiated products and get them to market faster.
