Brentwood is proud to announce that it will open a medical manufacturing facility in Tijuana, Mexico, in early 2018. This second facility represents Brentwood’s first strategic international expansion dedicated to custom thermoformed medical packaging.
As a major North American medical manufacturing hub, Tijuana continues to experience growth at a rapid pace. “We’ve been evaluating expansion into Tijuana for a number of years, particularly considering the large push in the medical industry to source all packing and components as close to the point-of-manufacture as possible,” says Andrew Haus, Brentwood’s Medical Product Line Manager. “This new facility will position Brentwood very favorably in the market, allowing us to continue to offer industry-leading service and value to our customers.”
Located along the southern border of Tijuana, the clean room facility will serve Central America and the western United States, an approach that aligns with Brentwood’s corporate expansion model of opening a site in a specific geography with the intention of catering to that geography. The site also provides a critical capability for Brentwood: operational redundancy. Brentwood is confident that adding a new ISO Class 7 clean room environment will offer medical OEMs the security and flexibility required for critical projects.
“Our aim is always to pursue new opportunities,” says Haus. “Whether that means coming up with an innovative design for a client’s project or best positioning ourselves – literally – to serve our growing customer base, we will continue to invest in the medical sector to support the needs of our customers.”
