Increasing demand for MGS Medical Plastics products has resulted in the company launching a new 2,500 sq ft clean room at a cost of more than £150,000.
The company recently expanded into new premises in Blackburn, Lancashire, in a bid to both work more efficiently and plan for future expansion.
The latest stage of that development is now complete, and MGS recently launched its new clean room which will allow it to increase production on its disposable medical and needle devices.
MGS Medical Plastics is an offshoot of MG Stuma, which has recently rebranded as MGS Technical Plastics, one of the UK’s quickest growing plastic injection moulding specialists. The company is currently undergoing a £2m expansion plan as it bids to keep up with rapidly growing demands for its specialist products.
The clean room is the latest part of the growth plan. It conforms to ISO13485, which the company is the process of gaining certification for, and is home to 5 injection moulding machines arranging from 35 tonne to 110 tonne lock, shot weight from 25g to 300g.
Director John Sturgess said: “This is a very exciting time for MGS. We are evolving rapidly and investing heavily in new premises and new machinery.
“We are growing from strength to strength all the time and our clean room, which is another significant investment, is yet another string to our bow. It confirms our position as one of the strongest in the market.”
MGS produces a wide range of medical items, including hyperdermic needle handling and control, blood test systems, dental care, disposable medical devices, filtration and sterilisation equipment.
