PMC SMART Solutions triples its medical manufacturing space in Indiana
Global medical device supplier announces new expansion and hires to accommodate continued growth
SHELBYVILLE, Ind. — PMC SMART Solutions, a leading global manufacturing company with operations in Shelbyville, Ind., is undergoing the final stages of a $5 million expansion project that will triple its current medical manufacturing space.
The expansion, which is scheduled to be ready for manufacturing in April, is designed to accommodate the significant growth the company has experienced in medical device contract manufacturing, according to Lisa Jennings, President and CEO of PMC SMART Solutions.
The company also has been hiring new employees in engineering and operations to manage increases in new programs and production of finished disposable devices.
“We are excited about the expansion and new team additions to PMC SMART Solutions,” Jennings said. “Our company’s growth can be directly attributed to our team’s commitment to continuous innovation, world-class quality and on-time delivery.”
PMC’s excellence in customer service has been recognized with numerous accolades, including the prestigious Bosch Global Supplier Excellence Award. “Our employees consistently perform beyond client expectations,” Jennings said. “And the expanded medical manufacturing space strengthens our ability to continue that legacy of success.”
Along with the expansion of medical manufacturing spaces, including Class 8 clean room manufacturing, the project includes new equipment, office space and employee amenities. PMC is investing in equipment for injection molding, including implant and micro-molding, and automation and sterile packaging for finished disposable devices.
“Our continued growth would not be possible without the tremendous support of the Shelbyville community,” said Jennings, referring to collaborations with Mayor Tom DeBaun, Brian Asher, executive director of the Shelby County Development Company and Shelbyville City Councilmembers.
“It’s been a great partnership since we opened our doors in 1973,” she said. “Shelbyville is a friendly place to do business. We’re looking forward to growing with the community.”
The medical devices sector has been a significant area of growth for PMC, which recently entered into contracts with major global companies that specialize in ophthalmic surgery and surgical navigation.
