Genesis Plastic Welding’s Tom Ryder Talks 2019 Outlook

2019 is looking bright for many industries, including medical device. Industry experts predict overall revenue growth driven by continued innovation and emerging technologies.

As markets evolve and drive opportunity, it should be a banner year for contract manufacturers, as well. Growth for many medical device OEMs is presenting capacity questions – expand or farm out. With ever-narrowing margins and increased competition, strategic outsourcing bridges the gap quickest and most efficiently.

Additionally, industry leaders outside of medical device are setting their sights on acquisition and targeting the purchase of medical-based companies in order to diversify and break into the lucrative market. Contract manufacturing partners with medical device design, development and production expertise will be key in helping these specific manufacturers hit the ground running. Read more

Manufacturing Day | Inspiring the Next Manufacturing Generation

The lights come up, the hour is over, and you’ve learned quite a bit from a “how-to” video tutorial in your Manufacturing 101 class. And while classrooms are integral to the education process, many of us may remember that an actual hands-on learning experience gave us an on-the-job and real-life view of business that we just couldn’t get inside of a classroom.

Manufacturing Day

Friday, October 5 is National Manufacturing Day—a day set aside as a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire a future generation of manufacturers. You might say that at Genesis Plastics Welding we celebrate that day every day. Even though we aren’t in a classroom ourselves every day, we haven’t forgotten how important it is to offer the next generation of innovators and potential medical device workers hands-on internship experiences that expand their learning realm and inspire a future career in the manufacturing industry.

“There are so many unknowns in the world for today’s students considering career path options. Hands-on internships can be very enlightening for most students and such a great experience and added value for the employer as well,” said Genesis Plastics Welding President and CEO Tom Ryder.  Read more

[In the News] Costa Rica Medical Device

Medical Device Clean Room Manufacturing Genesis Plastics Welding

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? Reach out to Jason or Michael.

Recently in Verdict Medical Devices, Chris Lo went deeper inside Costa Rica’s supersized medical device sector. Read more below and see why Costa Rica is a hub for more than 70 large medical device OEMs. Find the full article online and here.

In 2017, medical devices became Costa Rica’s top export, surpassing the agricultural sector for the first time in the country’s history. With more than 70 medical device companies operating in Costa Rica, how has this small nation managed to develop such a successful and fast-growing medical technology sector? Read more
