Tekni-Plex launches medical business to better serve OEMs

To simplify product and service sourcing for medical OEMs worldwide, Tekni-Plex (Wayne, PA) has established a medical business unit that will supply high-value components, materials and solutions previously provided individually by its Colorite, Natvar and Dunn businesses.


Medical device companies will now have a dedicated sales and customer service team representing all product lines, said Tekni-Plex in a press release distributed today. “Our goal is to be a trusted advisor, helping our customers make the best decisions on their most important business issues through deep engagement, expertise, innovation and quality,” said Paul Young, Tekni-Plex President and CEO. “Our globally integrated operations will help us provide better and faster solutions to meet customer needs.”

Manufacturing will continue in the same locations, with the ability to run the same material specifications on the same equipment around the world for multinational customers. Going forward the Colorite, Natvar and Dunn names will be used as product brands.

Meet the new Tekni-Plex Medical at MD&M West in Anaheim, CA, on Feb. 11 to 13, 2020, at booth 3019. More than 1900 suppliers to global medical device OEMs will exhibit at what is described as the world's largest medical design and manufacturing trade show and conference. Go to the MD&M West website for further information.

Colorite advanced medical-grade compounds are used by the world’s foremost healthcare and medical device manufacturers and are globally recognized for consistently meeting or surpassing rigorous regulatory and industry standards, said Tekni-Plex. The Colorite brand also includes an extensive line of engineered PVC and TPE medical-grade compounds.

The Natvar brand includes multilayer and multi-lumen tubing, as well as a range of value-added options including tapered, striped, thermoformed and special profile products. These extruded tubes are used in applications including intravenous therapy, dialysis, respiratory and surgical equipment.

Dunn precision extruded tubing is used in endovascular catheters and minimally invasive devices. The brand also includes custom thermoplastic tubing for diagnostic and interventional devices.

Tekni-Plex Medical operates nine global facilities that practice lean manufacturing to strike the right balance between product quality and economic requirements.
