NEWS RELEASE: ProMed Molded Products opens new development and innovation facility
ProMed Molded Products, a contract manufacturer supporting applications in medical devices, drug-releasing combination devices, as well as specialized applications arenas for aerospace and defense and automotive, announces the opening of our new development facility in Plymouth, Minnesota. Located less than a mile from our main operations facility, this new 28,000 ft ² building was designed to support new development and innovation by combining R&D, prototyping, product development and tooling under a single roof.
The genesis behind the new facility was to “foster cross-functional collaboration to reduce customer project development timelines and ensure a higher quality product,” said ProMed Engineering Manager Zach Brintz, who was central to the design and execution of the project plans.
Housing approximately 40 engineers and support staff, the new facility’s services and capabilities include high-precision injection molding, multicomponent/overmolding processes, advanced material blending accommodating additives for specialty materials such as desiccants and carbon-based conductive silicones, testing and quality inspection, tool design and tool production, including high precision 5-axis machining and automation. The facility includes additional manufacturing space to establish value-added services beyond molding to support customers’ unique project requirements.
ProMed has been a leading force in the development of medical devices since 1989, addressing an industry need for cleanroom molding of silicone components and assemblies. We specialize in small, intricately designed silicone and plastic components, both short-term and long-term implantable, with or without drug-releasing agents. Our innovative processes include tool design, molding of components, automated assembly, and testing support for drug delivery and combination devices.
