New Medical Devices Technology

HPE Extrusion Solutions, a manufacturer of plastic extrusions, has entered into a joint venture with Vascutech Medical, a molded products manufacturer, to create VascuMedical, Inc. for the development and manufacture of disposable medical devices.

The newly formed company brings together the extensive experience and manufacturing resources of HPE, which has been a long-time leader in the plastic extrusions field, and the innovative medical devices engineering capabilities of Vascutech Medical.

Among the disposable medical devices VascuMedical will develop and manufacture are all types of catheters, dilators, needles, trocars, tunnelers and introducers.

A joint announcement issued by the two partner companies pointed out that VascuMedical is one of the few companies in the medical devices industry to offer a full range of services for OEMs under one roof - without the need for outsourcing. On-premises services include product design and development, in-house tooling, extrusions of all types, insert/injection molding and fabrication/ assembly. Ancillary services, such as radio frequency tip forming, pad printing, hole punching and skiving, are also performed on-site.

“By combining plant and intellectual resources, we believe that VascuMedical is uniquely qualified to offer OEMs maximum flexibility, the close monitoring of every project from concept to completion and a turnaround time that cannot be matched by most of our competitors,” said Tony Madison, VascuMedical President.
