Confluent Medical Technologies this week announced the opening of its new addition to its Costa Rica manufacturing facility.
The expansion adds 66,000 sq. ft to its large-scale manufacturing center of excellence in Alajuela, Costa Rica to expand Confluent’s capacity for nitinol component processing and complex catheter manufacturing.
“Confluent has experienced consistent and strong growth in recent years,” President and CEO Dean Schauer said. “This expansion supports our new product pipeline which continues to grow at a rate greater than Confluent has previously experienced.”
Confluent Medical produces components for numerous medical device markets, including interventional neuromuscular, electrophysiology, structural heart and peripheral vascular. Because of the double-digit growth the company has experienced, the new expansion in Costa Rica will begin making new products that are coming into production.
The company is now considering additional expansion options beyond the Alajuela, Costa Rica facility to meet the demands of the markets it serves.
