Oliver Medical (Grand Rapids, MI) has announced plans to construct a facility for medical device manufacturing in Salt Lake City. The facility will have a Class 8 cleanroom, along with high-speed pouch and bag manufacturing. The company hopes the plant will help reduce lead times for its West Coast clients and provide them with opportunities to reduce costs for shipping.
Oliver Medical provides packaging and adhesives for the medical device industry. For more than 30 years, privately held Oliver Products Co. has produced sterile-grade medical packaging materials. In 2004, Oliver Medical was created as a distinct business unit to underscore its focus on the needs of medical device manufacturers worldwide.
