Wednesday, February 08, 2023
Freudenberg Medical, a global contract design and manufacturing provider to the medical device and pharmaceutical industry, has added custom silicone extrusion and tube processing to its new cleanroom manufacturing operation in Beverly, Massachusetts. Silicone tubing production started in January and additional capacity will be installed in Q1 to further support customers. The material focus is on platinum catalyzed addition-cured silicones in order to meet the very highest quality standards for medical and pharmaceutical applications.
Freudenberg Medical is a leading processor for custom medical and biopharma tubing including multi-lumen, complex single lumen, and micro extrusions. The extrusion equipment and manufacturing processes installed in Massachusetts are identical to other Freudenberg Medical global locations for consistency and redundancy to mitigate customer supply chain risks.
“Freudenberg has added silicone extrusion capabilities in Massachusetts to better serve our Eastern US customers with custom tubing solutions,” said Lars Gerding, VP of Technology and Silicones at Freudenberg Medical. “Our extensive silicone expertise combined with our long-standing raw material partners, makes Freudenberg Medical the premier tubing design and manufacturing partner for medical device OEMs in New England and beyond.”
