UFP Technologies Adds Cleanroom in IL to Further Support Medical Device Manufacturers

UFP Technologies Inc. is expanding to meet increased demand by medical device manufacturers (MDMs). The company, which produces specialty packaging and custom-engineered components and products, achieved ISO 13485:2003 certification in 2011 at its Glendale Heights, facility, and it continues to invest in that location to support MDMs.

For instance, UFP Technologies has added an ISO Class 8 (Class 100,000) cleanroom, enabling the facility to produce up to Class III medical devices. New production machinery within the cleanroom can produce custom components, products, and packaging from medical-grade foams and thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPU). New capabilities include RF welding, high-speed die-cutting, and heat sealing, allowing the company to output multiple-millions of parts per week.

“Investing in our medical manufacturing capabilities was vital to support the growing demands of our customers,” said Michael Zumpano, General Manager of the Glendale Heights facility, in a statement. “Our facility is equipped to fabricate the latest medical-grade foams, films, and other specialty materials that we have access to from our broad supply base.”

UFP Technologies has served as a manufacturing partner to medical device OEMs for years. Seven of its eleven manufacturing facilities are ISO 13485:2003 certified which house multiple ISO Class 8 (Class 100,000) and ISO Class 7 (Class 10,000) clean room facilities, the company reports.
