Alpharetta, Ga.-based medical supplier Spectrum Plastics Group is renovating its Minneapolis facility and expanding its clean room.
Expected to be complete by November, the 105,000-square-foot facility's clean room space will increase to 10,000 square feet, a Sept. 1 news release said.
"Spectrum has been quietly investing in this market segment by adding 15 new molding machines over the last three years," Paul Schmeling, senior vice president of specialty molding at Spectrum, said in the release. "This clean room expansion furthers that commitment with the purchase and installation of another 10 molding machines over the balance of this year and next."
The majority of the new presses will be 110 tons of clamping force and smaller. The renovation includes office and employee amenity space and collaborative workspaces to allow quality and engineering teams to work more closely with customers.
Spectrum did not respond to questions from Plastics News.
The new molding and assembly Class 8 clean room will focus on high precision, small and micro-molded parts for medical and defense applications. It will also feature real-time data capture, process quality monitoring, and RJG in-cavity pressure monitoring.
