ENFIELD, Conn. – Cirtec Medical, LLC, a leading provider of design and contract manufacturing services for active implantable and minimally invasive devices, today announced the grand opening of their new 38,000-square-foot manufacturing facility located at 99 Print Shop Road, Enfield, Conn.
The new facility includes an ISO Class 7 clean room, additional controlled-environment assembly space and advanced engineering and metallurgical labs. The configuration of the new space will allow the company to expand its use of LEAN manufacturing practices to continually improve product quality while reducing cycle times and production costs.
“We are very excited about the opening of what we consider to be a center of excellence for manufacturing active implantable medical devices,” said Brian Highley, CEO of Cirtec. “This world class manufacturing facility will enable us to increase capacity and expand our capabilities in providing innovative solutions to our customers.”
Cirtec Medical has a long history of providing design, development and manufacturing services for active implantable devices to the world’s largest OEMs and innovative startups. Active implantable medical devices fall under the most stringent quality requirements in the medical industry. Manufacturing these devices is enormously challenging and, as a result, more device developers rely on Cirtec’s expertise and quality systems to speed development and to reduce risk.
“Cirtec is another example of a forward-thinking, advanced, innovative company choosing to locate in Connecticut. We have one of the most educated workforces in the world, and Cirtec will no doubt benefit,” said Connecticut Governor Dannel P. Malloy. “Industry leaders like Cirtec are advancing research and development of new cutting-edge medical devices. It is companies like this that will help Connecticut continue to compete and win in the 21st Century economy, and we are proud Cirtec has chosen to call Connecticut home.”
