Recently, Cadence proclaimed that it is planning to expand its Plymouth, Massachusetts’ and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic facilities’ cleanroom capabilities. Since it will help enhance support for its life science and medical device customers.
The company has plans to add a Class 8 cleanroom in Plymouth, Mass., and to develop further the old Class 8 cleanroom in Dominican Republic’s Santo Domingo.
Presses sized between 17 tons, and 165 tons will have cleanroom injection molding that uses engineered resins. The expansion processes are expected to be through early May, which is likely to provide a space earmarked for cleanroom automation and assembly.
Jeff Kelly, Vice President & General Manager, stated, “We bought our first injection molding machine in 1965. Since that time, we have focused on ‘mission critical’ plastic products, including parts that helped enable man to walk on the moon in 1969.” According to him, the expansion of this legacy will help them support medical applications in a better manner.
Vice President of Manufacturing for the Mass., and the Dominican Republic facilities, Omar Ferretti avowed, “Our commitment to ‘mission critical’ plastic products for medical devices is driving our current expansion efforts. This investment is the direct result of the talent, hard work, and commitment of our employees making us a better company every day.”
