Forefront Medical Technology is opening a manufacturing facility in Juarez, Mexico.
The Singapore-based contract manufacturer said it is preparing the 68,000 ft² facility and has scheduled production qualification for mid-2024.
The facility will offer injection molding, extrusion, clean room assembly and packaging, and automated high-volume production. It’s the company’s fifth medical manufacturing facility.
“Our Mexico manufacturing plant will provide our global customer base with greater flexibility and choice in deciding where they want their products manufactured,” Forefront Medical Technology President Walter Tarca said in a news release.
“Customers selling products into North America especially will gain the benefits of nearshore pricing and the simplified logistics of a border location,” he continued. “Shipments will be in the U.S. within 24-48 hours of leaving our factory. This new plant, combined with our comprehensive manufacturing capabilities in Singapore, China and the U.K., gives our global customer base a variety of options for regional manufacturing strategies.”
