Spectrum Plastics today announced it has completed the expansion of its Sandy, Utah facility.
The new facility doubles the company’s footprint in the area and established a 100,000 sq. ft manufacturing facility. The expansion will also create over 100 new jobs for operators, technicians and engineers.
Spectrum Plastics’ expansion is part of the former headquarters of Apollo Medical Extrusion, which was acquired by Spectrum Plastics.
New to the facility is 15,000 sq. ft of Class 7 cleanroom space to produce complex catheter sub-assemblies, as well as a dedicated area for the Apollo Space Camp experience and training and new braiding, coiling, reflow, tipping and flaring catheter development equipment.
“This expansion is instrumental to accommodating the growth we’ve had while maintaining our excellent quality, service and lead times,” senior VP of Spectrum Plastics Vascular Technologies and co-founder of Apollo Medical Extrusion Matt Bills said. “Our top priorities have always been industry innovation and improving the customer medical device development experience. With this expansion, we will better serve our customers’ long-term catheter manufacturing needs.”
