What’s in a name? In the case of Drake Plastics, possible confusion, apparently. The company announced on Oct. 6 that it is changing the name of its sister company, Drake Medical Plastics, to Genesis Medical Plastics.

"We have always been trailblazers, and the Genesis name captures that spirit,” said General Manager Stephen Kramer. “The level of innovation provides a platform for differentiating and naming future products.”

Kramer added that the name change makes a distinction with a difference. “With a similar name and nearby address, this eliminates any confusion between the two companies," he said.

Genesis Medical Plastics specializes in converting implantable PEEK and other medical-grade polymers into stock shapes, film, prototypes, and injection molded or machined components. Applications include spinal implants, cardiovascular devices, surgical instruments, orthopedic products, and analytical equipment. Customers include BD, DePuy Synthes, and Philips Healthcare. The company’s quality systems are certified to ISO 13485:2016 and it is FDA registered.
