Staunton, Va.-based medical supplier Cadence Inc. added an ISO Class 8 (100,000) clean room at its headquarters to respond to growing customer demand.
"The new certified clean room will be used for development and manufacturing of novel medical devices," an Oct. 27 news release by Cadence said.
"We are excited about expanding the capabilities at our Virginia facility," Chris McHugh, vice president of operations at Cadence said in the release. "The addition of this new clean room, combined with our state-of-the-art facility and engineering resources, allows us to be more vertically integrated for our customers' most complex products."
Cadence has injection molding, reel-to-reel molding, machining and in-house protoyping operations.
The investment makes Cadence's second location to offer certified clean room manufacturing and complements the molder's new product development, it said.
Cadence did not immediately respond to inquiry for comment by Plastics News, including what new products would be made in the clean room.
