Located in Greenville, North Carolina, this facility will bring increased production capacity to help medical device companies use our UHMWPE fibers to develop new, innovative devices that perform better and improve patient care.
Our expanded manufacturing capabilities offer customers significant advantages, including the ability to develop new generations of UHMWPE fibers and faster time-to-market thanks to dedicated production of medical grade fibers. All the technology inside the facility is proprietary to DSM, with the line will be operated and validated under ISO 13485:2003 quality standards.
A good ‘green’ company
In keeping with DSM’s global sustainability goal, we’ve incorporated energy efficiency and other ‘green’ targets into this facility. It’s more environmentally sustainable, using significantly less energy than our standard manufacturing plants, with far lower emissions. And it will support a much more efficient use of raw materials and processing techniques. We are also developing several packaging innovations for our products that will minimize waste.
This plant is an important milestone in our ongoing commitment to support our customers as they develop and produce innovative medical devices that will brighten lives of people around the world.
