UFP Technologies Inc., a producer of custom-engineered components, products, and specialty packaging, has expanded its manufacturing operations in Georgetown, Mass. The addition of a new cleanroom and high volume production equipment broadens UFP Technologies’ medical manufacturing capabilities. Using foams, plastics, composites, and natural fiber materials, the company designs and manufactures a range of solutions primarily for the medical, automotive, aerospace and defense, and packaging markets.
The new ISO Class 8 (Class 100,000) certified cleanroom will house a custom built high volume line to support its growing line of components manufactured from medical-grade thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). The TPU components offer a high degree of puncture resistance and flexibility to provide a robust sterile barrier protection. UFP Technologies now has a total five clean environments in Massachusetts.
“Our customers rely on us to continually innovate our manufacturing technologies to meet stringent medical device requirements,” says Mitch Rock, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Investing in a new cleanroom facility and advanced manufacturing equipment allows us to be a valued partner to them.”
UFP Technologies has seven manufacturing facilities throughout the country that are ISO 13485:2003 certified which house multiple ISO Class 8 (Class 100,000) and ISO Class 7 (Class 10,000) cleanroom facilities.
