Industry friends are often surprised to hear us say that we are willing to help clients source Costa Rica medical device production. We enjoy serving our contract manufacturing clients stateside, but if it makes sense, then yes. Over the years as, as client volumes grew, we’ve played a key role in helping several OEMs transition from our Midwest contract manufacturing services to Costa Rica or other offshore locations. We also have coordinated and been a dual source in several occurrences, where 80% of production was offshore and 20% remained with us.
OEMs have come to know that above all, they can count on Genesis Plastics Welding and Medtech Launch team to be collaborative and resourceful. We know everyone has a bottom line to keep in mind and sometimes sourcing production elsewhere makes sense. Through our strong industry relationships, we are happy to help and make transitions as smooth as possible. Often beginning with our team, as a product design goes from concept to go-to-market to production ramp up, is the perfect match for long-term device success. Have a product you’d like to discuss?
