Tekni-Plex announced the formation of the Tekni-Plex Medical business unit, which will facilitate the supply of mission-critical, high-value components, materials, and solutions to medical device manufacturers worldwide.
The new operating unit will offer products and services formerly supplied separately by its Colorite, Natvar, and Dunn businesses.
Medical device companies will now have a dedicated sales and customer service team representing all product lines. “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, president and chief executive officer, Tekni-Plex. “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.
The Colorite brand’s advanced medical-grade compounds are used by the world’s foremost healthcare and medical device manufacturers. They are globally recognized for consistently meeting or surpassing rigorous regulatory and industry standards. The Colorite brand also includes an extensive line of PVC and TPE medical-grade compounds that have been engineered to meet product objectives.
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.
The Dunn brand features precision extruded tubing for endovascular catheters and minimally invasive devices. Dunn also manufactures custom medical tubing for diagnostic and interventional devices from a wide range of thermoplastics.
