At Biomerics LLC, a supplier of polymer solutions to the medical device and healthcare industries, the past six months has brought a lot of growth. "The team has brought online new medical and Pharma compounding lines, an automated material handling system, and expanded our capabilities in injection molding, vibration welding, and device assembly," said Jeff Clark, vice president of Operations for Biomerics.
And this week the company announced the completion of a 10,000-square-foot expansion at its Salt Lake City, Utah, plant. The expansion included an ISO Class 8 clean room for injection molding and device assembly, a medical device packaging cell, and a fulfillment warehouse.
The company said the expansion of this ISO 13485 registered facility has resulted in the hiring of 15 employees and is expected to support the creation of an additional 20 positions over the next 12 months.
"The additional clean room enables us to have dedicated production areas for material polymerization and compounding, as well as injection molding and medical device assembly," said Travis Sessions, CEO of Biomerics. "The new packaging and warehouse space expands our capability to manage sterile medical device fulfillment for our customers.
In addition to the facility expansion, Biomerics has invested $1.5 million in new plastics manufacturing equipment.
