TUSCON, Ariz.—G.W. Plastics has completed the addition of a 12,000-sq.-ft. clean room to its Tucson facility to support its medical device assembly and packaging business.
The expansion resulted from the reshoring of two large contract manufacturing programs with unnamed original equipment manufacturers, the company said.
The firm's Dongguan, China, facility—which molds, assembles and packages a drug delivery device—now will use the Tucson plant's automated assembly and packaging expertise.
A second large medical device program was relocated from Mexico to Tucson to take advantage of GW Plastics' integrated clean room, molding, automated assembly and finished packaging capabilities, the firm said.
The company didn't release any financial and employment details connected with the production changes.
