BUFFALO GROVE, IL--(Marketwire - December 12, 2011) -
CORPAK MedSystems has relocated its corporate headquarters, product development and ISO certified manufacturing to a new 74,000 square foot facility in Buffalo Grove, Illinois, a suburb northwest of Chicago.
The state-of-the-art facility provides increased ISO Class 8 clean room manufacturing capacity, warehouse and distribution space, and includes additional research and development facilities. As a result of the relocation, CORPAK has brought upgrades and enhancements to their existing systems and expanded their manufacturing capacity to support their rapid growth in its enteral product lines.
"We are very pleased to remain in the Chicago area with increased capacity that will allow us to continue to meet the needs of our customers for the medical devices and technology that affect patient lives so profoundly," said Jeff Blair, CEO. "The ability to devote more space to research and development was one of our top requirements in the move, and we are now better positioned to continue to develop enteral access devices that set new standards for excellence while meeting the needs of medical teams and patients."
