LIONVILLE, PA. — West Pharmaceutical Services Inc. is building its first clean room for plastics molding in the United States. The medical-device maker and contract packager is converting 9,400 square feet of its plant in Montgomery, Pa., into a Class 100,000 clean room with 20 injection molding machines, said spokesman Thomas Walker. It will be completed in the second quarter.
Walker would not say how much the facility will cost or describe the type of molding to be done.
West, which is based in Lionville, already has Class 10,000 clean room molding in Lewes, England, and in Stolberg, Germany. The company has clean room molding for rubber and silicone processing in Montgomery.
