“Growth is the key word for describing our five years in Mills River”, said Martin Bayer, President and CEO of Raumedic Inc., summing up the current situation. In 2016, the ISO Class 7 clean room production facilities covering 13,000 sq ft. were built on an empty field in the Asheville area. Now it is occupied with the business the company has developed.
Raumedic serves international medical device companies which distribute insulin pumps, surgical equipment, or catheters, for example. “The advanced equipment and processes that will go into the new space will help us to remain ahead of the curve. With automated assembly cells and robotically augmented molding presses, we are able to produce high-quality medical technology solutions in the mainland US and remain competitive”, explained Martin Bayer.
Jon Campbell, Director of Preconstruction at THS Constructors, Inc. said, “We are very appreciative to Raumedic for placing their trust in our team once again. We are ecstatic to build their expansion facility and help continue the economic growth for Henderson County.”
The expansion goes hand in hand with the need to increase the workforce at Raumedic Inc. That is why the company, which remains dedicated to US manufacturing, is looking for further employees located in the close-by regions of Buncombe County and Henderson County. Raumedic Inc. recently reached 100 employees and has grown by 15 percent within the last 12 months.
Human health is at the core of Raumedic Group's business. The company specializes in processing medical-grade thermoplastic polymers and silicones at five production sites in Germany and the United States. With 70 years of experience in the areas of extrusion, injection molding and assembly, the company with a global workforce of 1,000 people turns customer ideas into mature products.
As a partner of the international medical technology and pharmaceutical industry, the polymer specialist develops and produces customized components for customers, including tubing, catheters and molded parts as well as complex groups of components and systems for diagnostic and therapeutic uses. For the clinical areas of neuromonitoring and traumatology, Raumedic manufactures high-precision pressure-measuring systems with microchip technology.
