SIMTEX to provide liquid silicone rubber manufacturing to new OEM client.
"We are pleased to have been awarded this program," said Enrique Camacho, president of SIMTEC Silicone Parts. "With our controlled environment and ISO 13485 certification, we are poised to expand further into sophisticated medical device programs for LSR and two-shot components."
The company would not reveal the name of its latest client.
Production will begin this year with annual volumes estimated to reach 80 million parts per year. Multiple production units are planned for this program and a custom, medical grade LSR will be produced specifically for this application.
SIMTEC relocated to a new facility in 2013 and more than quadrupled the firm's previous footprint.
"Our new 80,000-square-foot operation is one of the most modern of its kind in the world," Camacho said. "We now retain the infrastructure necessary to support sizable growth, while at the same time enabling fast time to market for new programs."
SIMTEC serves the medical device, cosmetic, consumer goods, food and beverage, appliance, technology, industrial, home entertainment, and automotive industries.
