03/05/2012
Biomerics LLC, a supplier of polymers to the medical device and healthcare industries, has completed a 10,000-square-foot expansion at its Salt Lake City, Utah, manufacturing plant. The expansion included a clean room for injection molding and device assembly, a medical device packaging cell, and a warehouse.

"The operations team has been focused on expanding and developing our manufacturing capabilities to support the growth. We are excited about the new capabilities this expansion provides for customers," said Travis Sessions, president and CEO of Biomerics. "The additional clean room enables us to have dedicated production areas for material polymerization and compounding, as well as injection molding and medical device assembly. The new packaging and warehouse space expands our capability to manage sterile medical device fulfillment for our customers."

In addition to the facility expansion, Biomerics invested $1.5 million in new plastics manufacturing equipment. "The operations team has been focused on expanding and developing our manufacturing capabilities to support the growth," said Jeff Clark, VP of Operations for Biomerics. "In the past six months, the team brought online new medical and Pharma compounding lines, an automated material-handling system, and expanded our capabilities in injection molding, vibration welding, and device assembly."

The expansion is expected to create 25 additional jobs at the plant during the next year.
