Polyflon launches its second clean room with support from Keele

Eccleshall-based Polyflon Medical has recently launched it second Class 7 clean room, which was officially opened by Keele University.

Polyflon, a dedicated medical tube component manufacturing cell within Polyflon Technology Ltd, has worked with Keele on a number of occasions and invited Rosi Monkman, Business Partnerships Manager, to launch the new 60sqm facility in recognition of the support provided to them by the University.

Matthew Pedley, Operations Director at Polyflon, commented: “As a rapidly expanding part of our business it was vital for us to invest in an additional, larger, clean production cell to meet the needs of our existing medical customers but also to allow us to react to emerging opportunities still in the pipeline.

“Our new investment will ensure our ability to produce high quality components on a larger scale but also to support pharmaceutical/biotech clients who require components manufactured within a GMP Grade C framework.”

Rosi added: “Keele University is delighted to have supported Polyflon during their current phase of growth with medical device support from our Business Bridge* funding programme and with leadership development via the University’s Innovation Leadership programme*. Polyflon’s new cleanroom will enable them to access new sectors and we are looking forward to supporting their continued growth.”
