Millstone Medical Outsourcing Opens New Facility to Provide Additional Capacity for Advanced Inspection, Clean Room Operations


2/26/2009 7:04:00 AM

FALL RIVER, Mass., Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Millstone Medical Outsourcing announced today the opening of a second operating facility in Fall River, MA. The company acquired the new 30,000 square foot facility to provide additional space and capacity for advanced inspection and clean room services. The company will continue to operate the existing Fall River facility for the foreseeable future. In addition to the two Fall River locations, Millstone also offers loaner kit processing and distribution services through a strategically-located facility in Memphis, TN, bringing the total square footage of operating space for the company to roughly 95,000. Millstone, outsource partner to many of nation's top orthopedic companies, is the fast-growing provider of advanced inspection, clean room packaging, loaner kit processing and distribution services to medical and dental device manufacturers worldwide.

"The new facility will dramatically expand our ability to provide quality outsourced services," said Chris Ramsden, Chief Executive Officer of Millstone Medical Outsourcing. "We have seen increasing demand for sophisticated inspection and clean room services. The new facility will enable Millstone to scale with customer growth and solve specialized inspection, packaging, and distribution challenges."

Located at 580 Commerce Drive, the new center will include a world-class advanced mechanical inspection area, a 5,000 square foot state-of-the-art clean room, and significant floor space for packaging. The inspection cell will feature state-of-the-art equipment, including optical comparators, coordinate measuring machines (CMM), vision systems, and micro-hites. Although similar to the Class 10,000/ISO 7-rated clean room operated at the company's original Fall River facility, the new clean room incorporates the ultra sonic clean lines within environmentally controlled areas. Finally, the new facility can be monitored remotely for particulate and environmental conditions.
