The company held a joint groundbreaking ceremony with La Zeta and CINDE on Friday, February 12, 2021. (Biomerics is a mid-market medical device contract manufacturer).

The expansion is via a new greenfield plant adjacent to Biomerics current operations and includes extrusion, injection molding, micro metal processing, and cleanroom assembly process. The new facility construction totaling 110,000 sq. ft. will reflect Biomerics vertically integrated, full-service business model and will include engineering labs, quality inspection labs, controlled environment manufacturing, office space, class 7 clean rooms, packaging, and warehouse facilities.
