New Health Sciences, Inc. (NHSi), a medical technology company focused on innovations that improve transfusion therapy, announced the relaunch of its manufacturing facility in Avon, MA under the name NHS Manufacturing (NHSM). NHSi acquired the FDA registered facility from KS Manufacturing in April 2015 to support internal product development and manufacturing needs. But it also recognized that there was a promising contract manufacturing business and a set of core competencies in medical device disposable manufacturing, capital equipment assembly and distribution that could continue to serve the medical technology community in the Boston area.
Since the acquisition, NHSi has made substantial investments in the manufacturing facility, employee training, and process development in preparation for the relaunch. According to Jimmy Devarie, the NHSM Plant Manager, "the experienced team at NHSM is committed to providing the most effective option for medical device manufacturing needs while also emphasizing compliance, cost effectiveness and efficiency." Major improvements include the expansion of the manufacturing area, updates to the clean room systems, improvements to the warehouse systems, and installation of a new machine shop.
"We are proud to be launching NHS Manufacturing with the goal of providing efficient, responsive medical device prototyping and contract manufacturing capabilities for the vibrant med tech community in Boston." Stated Martin Cannon, CEO of NHSi. NHSM currently employees 6 people in the Avon facility and looks forward to being a consistent growing employer in the region.
