TekniPlex Healthcare, a packaging company, is extending its North American footprint and expanding global capacity with a new 200,000 square-foot manufacturing plant in Madison, Wis., the second TekniPlex Healthcare facility in the city. Scheduled to open in early 2024, the new facility will operate under the ISO 13485:2016 quality management system, which certifies the ability to provide medical devices and related services that consistently meet customer and regulatory requirements. 

TekniPlex Healthcare’s new facility will feature new manufacturing equipment that can help boost the company’s lamination capacity for a broad range of materials including PET, nylon, paper, foil, PE, EAA and ionomer, in both peelable and non-peelable structures. This, the company says, is expected to help drive shorter lead-times and improve quality. The laminate and coated products are utilized in a wide variety of applications for the medical device, pharma, and diagnostics end markets, including flexible foil and plastic pouches, contact lens packaging, blisters and blister lidding, and sterilizable protective structures for medical devices, accessories and procedural tools.

“… In addition to providing highly engineered products to ensure patient safety and outcomes, this facility also offers enhancement of our business continuity planning—a highly attractive benefit in an industry where supply risk mitigation is essential to guarantee lifesaving products are available when they are needed,” notes Chris Qualters, CEO of TekniPlex Healthcare’s CEO.
