Growth leads to expanding capabilities
MRPC, http://www.mrpcorp.com, recently completed construction of two new clean-rooms for molding medical components. The expansion includes a Class 10,000 clean-room of approximately 2,000 square feet for molding implantable products, and a Class 100,000 clean-room of approximately 3,000 square feet.
"The addition of these new clean-rooms is part of a $2 million investment in our Butler, Wisconsin facility," said Greg Riemer, vice president of sales and marketing. "These investments will help increase our liquid silicone molding and thermoplastic molding capabilities."
MRPC now has a total of four clean-rooms for LSR molding, gum silicone molding, silicone extrusion, custom rubber molding, thermoplastic molding and secondary assemblies.
"Together the clean-rooms span approximately 50,000 square feet," Riemer said. "Pairing the increased size and capabilities of our clean-rooms with our deep engineering and manufacturing background will allow us to deliver a superior level and quality of service to our customers."
New clean rooms to house new machinery
