Raumedic Opens Production Center in the U.S.
Raumedic AG, Helmbrechts, Germany, development partner and system supplier of polymer-based components and systems for the medical and pharmaceutical industry, is opening its new headquarters in Mills River, North Carolina, USA. A modern, full-service development and production center allows Raumedic to provide its customers in North America high-quality polymer extrusion, injection molding and assembled products on site.
Raumedic Inc. in Mills River started production in January 2016 with 56 employees. Specialists in the fields of engineering, research and development, clean room production, quality management, logistics, marketing and sales, as well as management have settled into their new workplace. A two-story production and administration building with a total area of 60,000 ft² (5,600 m²) serves as a production and development center for customer-specific polymer components and systems, including 13,000 ft² (1,200 m²) of the most cutting-edge cleanroom production according to ISO class 7.
CEO Martin Bayer comments: “This is an important step for Raumedic. We will now offer our customers the same quality and service they have come to expect from us as a development partner and system supplier at the Mills River location in the USA.” This includes multi-component injection molding with hard-hard and hard-soft connections, micro injection molding, insert molding, fully automated assembly systems, micro extrusion with an internal diameter of 0.1 mm and multiple layers in the tubing wall including X-ray tubing or film blowing. These are advanced technologies that will be introduced gradually at the new Mills River plant.
