Elos Medtech to enlarge plant in Skara
Elos Medtech Microplast, a company in the Elos Group, will be expanding its plant in Skara by 1,500 square metres due to increased demand for injection-moulded plastic components from customers in the medical-technology sector.
During 2014, Elos Medtech Microplast invested in sterile rooms for assembly, packaging and production in a sterile room environment. Production in Skara is largely automated and the operation is ISO 13485 certified.
The company’s MD, Mathias Andersson, says: “The increase in our market activities and a distinct business strategy combined with being part of Elos Medtech Group have aroused curiosity among our customers. At the same time, Elos Medtech Microplast already has an outstanding reputation and has displayed extremely good expertise and experience in technically demanding plastics over the years, while delivering excellent quality and precision. Together with our customers, we have developed a joint plan to increase cooperation in the years ahead. This has resulted in several major projects, which will constitute a key aspect of the company’s growth in the next coming years,” summarises Mathias Andersson.
When the expanded plant is completed at the end of 2015, capacity will be doubled compared with the current situation. This will create a platform which is necessary for the expected growth the coming years.
