MGSThe new cleanroom at MGS Medical Plastics in Lancashire
MGS Medical Plastics has invested more than £150,000 in a new 2,500 sq. ft cleanroom at its site in Blackburn, Lancashire, as part of an £2m expansion plan.
The company says the investment has come as a result of an increased demand for its medical plastic products, with the dedicated cleanroom meaning it has the capacity to increase production of its disposable medical and needle devices.
The cleanroom is the latest part of the growth plan. It is said to conform to ISO13485, which the company is in the process of gaining certification for, and is home to five injection moulding machines.
Company Director, John Sturgess, said: "This is a very exciting time for MGS. We are evolving rapidly and investing heavily in new premises and new machinery.
"We are growing from strength to strength all the time and our clean room, which is another significant investment, is yet another string to our bow. It confirms our position as one of the strongest in the market."
MGS Medical Plastics is an offshoot of injection moulding company, MG Stuma, which has recently rebranded as MGS Technical Plastics. The company is exhibiting at the Mediplas show in Birmingham this week on stand H32.
Mediplas is a specialist event centred around the manufacture of plastic products for the medical industry and MGS will exhibit a range of items, including hyperdermic needle handling and control, blood test systems and sterilisation equipment.
"Exhibitions are a great tool for us as they allow us to meet existing customers, introduce ourselves to potential new customers and to show off our great products," concluded Sturgess.
