NeedleTech Products Inc., a North Attleboro, Mass.-based manufacturer of custom medical devices and needle products, held a ribbon-cutting ceremony earlier this month for a new plant in North Attleboro.
The 73,000-square-foot manufacturing facility increases NeedleTech's production area by 30%, enabling the company to consolidate two separate older facilities into one location. The new building will allow NeedleTech to expand operations, increase R&D and offer more services to its customers, according to the company.
"Our specialty needle business was severely cramped for space, and the new quarters increase capacity, streamline operations and provide NeedleTech with the capability to offer more development and fulfillment options to customers," said Joseph Plante, president of NeedleTech. "The new facility allows us to provide faster turnaround and increases our capabilities, especially in the areas of metal fabrication, overmolding, clean room assembly and packaging and quick-turn prototyping. Just as importantly, our dedicated staff is now even better equipped to provide superior service to our customers."
Theragenics Corp., a Buford, Ga.-based medical device maker, acquired NeedleTech in July 2008.
