Teknor Apex: Certification for UK Manufacturing Facility
Teknor Apex Company, Pawtucket, RI, USA, has extended its international supply capabilities for TPEs by achieving ISO-13485 certification for its manufacturing facility in Oldbury, West Midlands, UK.
ISO-13485 is an international standard for quality management in medical manufacturing. The facility in the UK has passed the final audit and is expected to achieve full certification by the end of the current calendar quarter. A Medalist production facility in St. Albans, VT, USA. obtained ISO-13485 certification in 2010.
Certified production of Medalist TPEs in the UK helps Teknor Apex to save transit time and shipping costs in supplying the EU market, and it enables to offer European customers compounds that provide the same properties as those from the USA and meet the same exacting standards. The startup of a second production facility for Medalist compounds increases the capability to serve as a single source of material for companies that manufacture internationally at multiple locations.
