Tegra Medical, a contract manufacturer serving the medical technology sector, has purchased a building across the street from its Franklin, MA, headquarters and announced that it will expand its facility in Hernando, MS. The company’s worldwide square footage will increase by more than 53% to 356,000 square feet as a result.
The new building in Franklin, MA, includes 120,000 square feet of modern manufacturing space and requires minimal renovation, thereby shortening the timeline for occupancy, said Tegra Medical. The company’s Quick Wire and Tubing business, which provides in-stock and custom metal wire and hypotubing, will gain its own dedicated space when it becomes the building’s first occupant later in 2020. Other manufacturing operations will be phased in.
“This is our biggest expansion yet,” noted Hal Blenkhorn, Franklin General Manager. “As large as the space is already, the property can accommodate expansion to more than triple the building footprint in the future, positioning Tegra Medical for a continued growth path.”
The Hernando, MS, location is adding 4,000 square feet to house a new manufacturing cell with advanced, automated machinery. “With the new space we will combine operations and increase technology that will allow us to run faster and more efficiently,” said Hernando General Manager, Randy Sible.
“Tegra Medical’s ability to manufacture complicated devices with the utmost precision creates a continually growing demand for our services,” said Mike Treleaven, Tegra Medical Vice President. “By growing organically, we are expanding smoothly without disrupting existing operations.”
Tegra Medical provides end-to-end services from prototyping to full production for medical device OEMs. Capabilities include CNC milling and turning, Swiss machining, wire and sink EDM, laser processing, CNC grinding, injection molding and metal fabrication. Cleanroom insert molding is a specialty. Assembly and packaging services are also available.
The company operates four ISO 13485–certified and FDA-registered facilities in the United States and Costa Rica. Several sales offices are located in the United States and Europe.
