A Cypress, Texas-based medical plastics company is changing names to better reflect its "spirit" and avoid confusion with a sister company.
Drake Medical Plastics is becoming Genesis Medical Plastics, the company said.
"From our very genesis, we have offered a unique set of polymer services that provide unique support for medical device manufacturers," General Manager Stephen Kramer said in a statement. "We have always been trailblazers, and the Genesis name captures that spirit. The level of innovation provides a platform for differentiating and naming future products."
Genesis provides resin-to-component and resin-to-shape offerings for medical and life science customers.
The company specializes in converting resin into stock shapes, film, prototypes, injection molded and machined components, Genesis says on its website.
"We believe this allows us to differentiate ourselves from our sister company, Drake Plastics Ltd. Co. With a similar name and nearby address, this eliminates any confusion between the two companies," Kramer said.
Drake Plastics makes "ultra high-performance polymer stock shapes, injection molded parts and precision machined components," according to that company's website.
