The first conversion measures for the expansion of clean room capacities at the Halberstadt site have already started.
From next year, extruded tubes and components for medical technology applications will be manufactured on a total area of 1,300 m2.
The Masterflex Group is investing a good two million euros in the project and is thus deliberately focusing on the expansion of German locations with a simultaneous increase in international customer orientation. In addition, there will be further investments in machinery and equipment in the following years.
As part of the Masterflex Group, Novoplast Schlauchtechnik specialises in extruded tubes for medical technology applications. An expansion of the clean room capacity had become necessary due to a steady increase in incoming orders.
“We also see the Masterflex Group’s investment in the Halberstadt site as clear evidence of our performance and competitiveness,” says Managing Director Jens Schopferer.
“In future, in addition to tubes and components for medical technology applications, we want to offer more secondary processes such as the moulding of tips and the shaping or printing of components. This also requires more production space.”
The Masterflex Group’s medical technology division has seen a very positive demand trend in recent years.
Since 2000, Novoplast Schlauchtechnik has been producing in ISO Class 7 and 8 cleanrooms in accordance with DIN EN ISO 14644. The new cleanrooms planned for the plant comply with ISO Class 8 and can also be designed for ISO Class 7 if required.
The first construction phase is scheduled for completion as early as September 2021.
