The new 230,000 sq. ft. facility will be ISO 13485 certified, cGMP compliant and FDA registered, and will house dedicated injection blow molding, injection stretch blow molding and injection molding cells. Approximately 26,000 sq. ft. of the facility will have ISO Class 8 injection molding and assembly clean rooms with room for expansion. The new facility will feature a full service mold prototyping laboratory, and dedicated mold sampling and development equipment to enable Comar to rapidly bring customers from ideation to design to prototype to full production.

We have an opportunity to create a purpose-built facility that will enhance the employee experience, delight our customers and provide a path for significant continued growth. This new facility will provide best-in-class medical device production areas and significant additional capacity to grow with our customers across product lines and market segments. This is a necessary step to support our continued growth and vision to be recognized as the premier plastic packaging, device and component supplier, innovating solutions for customers who lead the way to a healthier world.” Comar has secured the new facility and submitted drawings and permit applications. The goal is to begin construction in the spring of 2020, and complete move in and production startup of the new facility by the end of 2020. The facility will support manufacturing of complex finished medical devices and sub-assemblies incorporating injection molding, blow molding, high speed assembly, testing and finished device pack out. Pete Scharber, vice president, direct sales, said, “Combining our team into a single campus creates the opportunity for employees to strengthen and grow their expertise to support our customers’ needs. We are excited to amplify the Comar value proposition for our medical customers and create additional avenues to collaborate, reduce costs, mitigate risk and further partner in their success as a single source of supply.”
