Tekni-Plex holds successful grand opening at new China manufacturing facility; Government officials and med device/pharma firms celebrate expanded Asia supply capability

Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA (October 19, 2017) — More than 40 government officials and 60 representatives from pharmaceutical and medical device companies attended the recent grand opening celebration for Tekni-Plex, Inc.’s new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Suzhou, China, near Shanghai. Plant tours and a luncheon followed the opening ceremony. 

Earlier this year, Tekni-Plex announced a $15 million investment in the facility to support the growing needs of the Asia-Pacific pharmaceutical and medical device market.

Tekni-Plex senior management in attendance at the ribbon cutting included Paul Young, chief executive officer, Russell Hubbard, vice president-international and general manager, Ian Kenny, global managing director, Colorite, Johan Laureys, vice president of Action Technology Global, and Bob Donohue, general manager of the company’s Natvar business unit. Xu Xiaofeng, standing committee member of CPC Wujiang Committee and deputy party secretary and vice chairman for Wujiang government, was also in attendance.

The more than 140,000-square-foot (13,000-square-meter) facility is manufacturing products for Tekni-Plex’s Natvar, Colorite and Action Technology business units. The facility features three Class 100K cleanrooms to accommodate medical-grade tubing and components production plus one Class 10K cleanroom that will produce Natvar’s pharma-grade tubing.

The facility is producing Natvar’s recently-announced silicone extrusion tubing for catheters, feeding tubes, drug delivery and peristaltic pump applications. Production for microextrusion tubing that targets a wide variety of demanding neurovascular interventional therapies and surgical applications is expected to be onstream early next year. The facility will also manufacture Colorite custom compounds for medical device applications, and Action Technology’s dip tubes used in a wide variety of food/beverage, pharmaceutical, personal care, industrial and household pump applications.

White paper: Medical polymer compounders can dramatically impact medical device commercialization timelines

Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA —A new white paper from Colorite, a Tekni-Plex company, shows how selecting the right medical polymer compounder can help medical device manufacturers improve productivity, minimize secondary processes and reduce overall system costs.

Aging population and economic gains in developing countries are driving medical device manufacturers to push boundaries regarding the capabilities that their products can offer physicians and patients. 

“In this era of globalization and the need to meet regulatory compliance requirements across a wide geographic footprint, working with medical polymer compounders that can assist medical device manufacturers in meeting those objectives has become more critical now than ever before,” explains Ian Kenny, global managing director, Colorite.

In addition to offering medical device manufacturers regulatory compliance assistance, medical polymer compounders are also called upon to help push material capability boundaries.  Unique requirements are frequently a critical component of next-generation devices, which requires a medical compounder who has the technical knowledge to provide leading-edge solutions.

“Polymers and polymer compounds play a central role in the development of a wide range of medical devices.  Therefore, it’s critical to partner with a team that has knowledge across the following categories: non-invasive, invasive, non-contact, as well as short and long term contact,” Kenny said.
