MN: Cirtec Medical to Add 30,000 sq. ft. to its Minneapolis Mfg Facility
24 Feb, 2017
Cirtec Medical LLC, a leading provider of design and contract manufacturing services for active implants and minimally invasive surgical devices, has announced it will expand its 54,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Brooklyn Park, MN, a suburb of Minneapolis.
The expansion, which is expected to be complete by the end of the year, includes additional cleanroom space, new office areas, engineering labs and additional engineering resources. The new space will provide an increase to the company’s manufacturing capacity for precision machining and medical device assembly.
“We are very excited about the expansion to our Brooklyn Park facility,” said Brian Highley, Cirtec’s CEO. “Not only does it provide the additional capacity we need to meet the needs of our growing customer base, but also enables us to create a center of excellence for neurostimulation leads and low-volume, high-mix minimally invasive surgical device assembly.”
This expansion comes less than a year after the opening of Cirtec’s 38,000-square-foot facility in Enfield, CT. The additional space will allow the company to expand its production line transfer capabilities while utilizing LEAN manufacturing practices to continually improve product quality and reduce production costs.
