BEVERLY, MA–Freudenberg Medical has completed construction of a new medical manufacturing facility here that will produce devices and components in medical- and implant-grade silicones, and high-performance plastics. The 36,000-square-foot building includes expanded manufacturing and innovation facilities, as well as Class 8 cleanroom space for molding and assembly. The operation is ISO 13485 certified and FDA-registered.

“The Boston life science cluster is the ideal place for our new headquarters and expanded manufacturing operation," says Dr. Max Kley, President and CEO of Freudenberg Medical. "It brings us closer to our customers, provides access to a strong medtech workforce and allows us to connect with local universities and research institutes.”

Freudenberg Medical has a long history in the region. Its previous operation in Gloucester, MA, had been in operation since 1989 and is a leading processor of silicone and thermoplastic components for medical and healthcare applications.
