Brentwood Industries (Reading, Pa.) has expanded its manufacturing capabilities by purchasing a cleanroom facility in Tijuana, Mexico. It plans to open the facility in early 2018.
This new purchase is the second facility of Brentwood’s that is dedicated to customers thermoformed medical packaging.
“We’ve been evaluating expansion into Tijuana for a number of years, particularly considering the large push in the medical industry to source all packing and components as close to the point-of-manufacture as possible,” said Andrew Haus, medical product line manager at Brentwood. “This new facility will position Brentwood very favorably in the market, allowing us to continue to offer industry-leading service and value to our customers.”
The cleanroom facility is located on the southern border of Tijuana and will service Central American and the western part of the U.S. The company suggests that adding this new ISO Class 7 cleanroom facility will help Brentwood offer medical OEMs the security and flexibility that is needed for critical projects.
“Our aim is always to pursue new opportunities,” Haus said. “Whether that means coming up with an innovative design for a client’s project or best positioning ourselves – literally – to serve our growing customer base, we will continue to invest in the medical sector to support the needs of our customers.”
