Biomerics Announces Plant Expansion

Press Release

March 6, 2012

Biomerics LLC, a leading supplier of polymer solutions to the medical device and healthcare industries, recently completed a 10,000-square-foot expansion at its Salt Lake City, Utah, plant. The expansion included an ISO Class 8 clean room for injection molding and device assembly, a medical device packaging cell, and a fulfillment warehouse.

“We are excited about the new capabilities this expansion provides for customers,” said Travis Sessions, president and CEO of Biomerics. “The additional clean room enables us to have dedicated production areas for material polymerization and compounding, as well as injection molding and medical device assembly. The new packaging and warehouse space expands our capability to manage sterile medical device fulfillment for our customers.”

The facility expansion was managed by Entelen, LLC, a Salt Lake City based design and construction company that specializes in clean manufacturing facilities. “We are focused on this growing market and partnering with innovative biomedical companies like Biomerics,” stated Steve Burt, CEO of Entelen. “We designed the clean room to exceed Federal Standard 209e and ISO Class 8 requirements for cleanliness and to the highest safety standards.”

In addition to the facility expansion, Biomerics has invested $1.5 million in new plastics manufacturing equipment. “The operations team has been focused on expanding and developing our manufacturing capabilities to support the growth,” said Jeff Clark, VP of Operations for Biomerics. “In the past six months, the team has brought online new medical and Pharma compounding lines, an automated material handling system, and expanded our capabilities in injection molding, vibration welding, and device assembly.”

The expansion of this ISO 13485 registered facility has resulted in the hiring of 15 employees and is expected to support the creation of an additional 20 positions over the next 12 months.
