The pharmaceutical CDMO for single-use medical products has bolstered its production with a plan for 32,000 sqft of ISO 7 and ISO 8 cleanrooms
Harmac Medical Products, a global contract design and manufacturing organisation (CDMO) for single-use medical devices, has announced that it has built a second facility in Tijuana, Mexico.
The new building will triple manufacturing space, expanding capacity and bolstering Harmac’s ability to provide full-service solutions in a near-shore location.
The new facility features 106,000 square feet of space, with a plan for 32,000 sqft of ISO 7 and ISO 8 cleanrooms, warehousing, engineering offices, quality management labs and other facilities to support Harmac’s growing operations. The building will house a full suite of integrated services including design for manufacturability (DFM), tooling and automation and process and product validation, as well as extensive manufacturing capabilities such as injection molding, RF welding, laser processing and more. Harmac expects the facility to be ready for production in early- to mid-2024.
“We’ve experienced tremendous growth with both existing and new customers and are making ongoing investments to support their current and future needs,” said John Somers, President and CEO of Harmac. “Our new facility will provide extra manufacturing capacity for customers who are looking for a dependable, high-quality manufacturing partner in a near-shore location. It will also allow us to offer a complete solution in Mexico, from resin to finished packaged device.”
Harmac has been manufacturing products in Mexico since 1999 and opened its first wholly-owned facility in 2014. The existing facility—located about 15 minutes from the new building—has 55,000 sqft of manufacturing space with about 450 employees across multiple shifts. The company will continue to operate both facilities under the direction of a shared management team.
“Our new facility will feature state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment in a brand-new building,” Somers added. “It will be a great place to work, and we look forward to hiring additional associates in a wide range of roles.”
