Flexan Establishes European Corporate Presence in Germany

Flexan, LLC, Chicago, USA, a global contract manufacturer of custom-molded elastomer rubber parts and silicone rubber components for medical products since 1946, is focusing its future growth strategy on the European market. Customers from all business areas have been previously managed by the US headquarters. In order to further optimize the existing service portfolio, Flexan has decided to establish a representation in Europe with a direct contact for commercial, technical or project-related subjects. The shorter distances allow for faster reaction times and improved performance. In addition, Flexan has identified the continent as a major future market and would like to open new fields of business sectors, particularly in medical technology.

In Europe, Flexan has so far been focused on high-precision custom molding for the hearing aid technology market. Additionally, its FMI division delivers clean room manufactured silicone rubber components for use in Class II disposable and Class III implantable medical devices. Flexan has wide-ranging experience and success in manufacturing complex parts with tight tolerances including parts that are over-molded to various substrates. With the intention of expanding the European business, Werner Karau took over the position of European Commercial Leader in November 2016. The expert for international business development acts as a direct contact for customers across the Atlantic. In the past, he worked for the American power quality solution provider Powervar, where he acquired comprehensive expertise in the field of medical technology, which will be crucial for his new assignment.

In order to further strengthen the company’s position in medical technology and to make better use of the growth potential in the European market, Flexan recently acquired Medron Inc., a Salt Lake City based medical device contract manufacturer. The addition of Medron significantly enhances Flexan’s contract manufacturing service offerings. "While FMI develops and produces high-precision components, Medron adds a wide range of outsourcing services, including high-volume manufacturing, customer private label capability, design engineering, product development, and prototyping," says Karau. "These include, for example, catheters, cardiovascular introductory aids or endoscopy products."
