Confluent Medical Technologies (“Confluent”) announces today the official opening of their Chattanooga, Tenn., Specialty Polymer Tubing center of excellence.
This new state-of-the-art facility, expected to be operational in Q3 2021, greatly expands Confluent’s ability to provide customers with complex delivery systems for structural heart, neurovascular, and peripheral vascular applications. The capabilities of this new location include PTFE liners, polyimide tubing, multi-layer composite tubing (braided and non-braided), and coated wire.
“Having a strong manufacturing location here in the U.S. is vital to supporting our growing customer base,” says Confluent President & CEO Dean Schauer. “Combine this new site’s capabilities with our complex catheter offerings out of our Austin, Texas, site and you have a powerful partner in Confluent Medical to assist with your catheter shaft needs.”
With the addition of filmcast technology, Confluent strengthens its vertically integrated supply chain by offering thin-walled, tightly tolerance engineered tubing. The Chattanooga site, with a technical team having over 175 years of combined experience in medical device manufacturing, will also partner with OEMs to provide customized tubing for demanding devices.
