MGS Mfg. will produce medical grade components, tools
MGS Mfg. Group, an engineering solutions and injection molding firm, will soon begin developing a 6,250-square-foot clean room inside its 100,000-square-foot production facility in Germantown. The clean room is expected to be operational in June.
A clean room is a sealed, ventilated area designed for production of medical grade components and packaging.
MGS, which is headquartered in Germantown, also has facilities in Libertyville and Antioch, Ill., and Chihuahua, Mexico.
“With continual growth at our medical molding facility in Antioch, Ill., and steady growth within the medical industry as a whole, we determined that now is the right time to expand our clean room molding capabilities” said Jeff Kolbow, chief operating officer of MGS Mfg. Group. “The addition will allow us to enhance our manufacturing and value-added services for existing and prospective customers in the healthcare market.”
When it complete, the new clean room will feature presses capable of single and multi-shot production and will have an extended ceiling height with a 10-ton overhead crane system that will allow it to produce large molds and higher tonnage molding machines. It will also be home to automation equipment capable of providing post mold value added operations.
MGS’ has designed the clean room so that it can be doubled in size within 90 days, as production demand dictates.
The company’s existing facility provides injection molding and continuous extrusion shuttle blow molding, as well as an on-site preventive maintenance tool shop. MGS Mfg. makes parts for a markets such as consumer, medical, packaging, electronics, and automotive.
The clean room expects to receive ISO Class 100,000 certification by the time it is operational. MGS is also working towards ISO 13485 certification by this summer.
