Cadence Expanding Cleanroom Capabilities
Thursday, April 07, 2016
Cadence plans to enhance cleanroom capabilities in its Plymouth, Mass., and Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic facilities to expand support for medical device and life science customers. The plans include addition of a Class 8 cleanroom in Plymouth and the expansion of the existing Class 8 cleanroom in Santo Domingo.
“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,” said Jeff Kelly, Vice President & General Manager. “We are excited to expand this legacy to better support medical applications.”
Cleanroom injection molding using engineered resins will be available on presses ranging from 17 tons to 165 tons in size. The expansion efforts, with expected completion in early May, also creates dedicated space for cleanroom assembly and automation.
“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,” stated Omar Ferretti, Vice President of Manufacturing for the Mass., and Dominican Republic facilities.
