NEW YORK — AMP Inc. is spending at least $2 million to refurbish a Greensboro, N.C., plant and is restructuring to create a unit to target the medical molding and contract assembly markets.
The Harrisburg, Pa.-based maker of electronic and interconnection products plans to open the white-room molding environment late this year. The unit will have four injection molding machines with clamping forces of 50-120 tons, said Jose Domingos, global medical industry manager.
The company, which has $5.8 billion in sales, plans to focus on manufacturing tight-tolerance parts such as stapler cartridges and catheter tips, Domingos said at Medical Design & Manufacturing East in New York.
The firm's Precision Interconnect unit, based in Portland, Ore., now manufactures cables and interconnection equipment for the medical industry.
