When you've been voted as the no. 1 and no. 2 "Best Place to Work" in the plastics industry, it only makes sense that you're on the fast track for growth. Micro Mold Co. and sister company Plastikos, located in Erie, PA, continues to expand its operations, announcing a major facility and equipment expansion in order to satisfy the growing production demand from its global medical device OEM customer base.
The facility expansion will comprise over 17,000 sq-ft of additional state-of-the-art space at Plastikos, with the heart of the medical expansion being an ISO 7 (Class 10,000) injection molding cleanroom, quality, general office and meeting room space. The addition will accommodate eight new injection molding machines specifically designed for medical cleanroom molding.
Plastikos' medical expansion will also include a separate ISO 7 assembly and packaging lab, as well as corresponding medical production support departments to also include mold and machine maintenance, and tool room. The new ISO 7 cleanroom will be one of the largest Class 10,000 cleanrooms available in the injection molding industry, according to the company.
