MINNEAPOLIS, MN-Injection molder Diversified Plastics Inc. has expanded its production capabilities by offering value-added services that require a clean room environment. This facility allows the company to extend its reach into industries such as medical devices, filtration and aerospace, in which special assembly and packaging operations need to be performed in clean room conditions.

“Adding a clean room facility was in our long-term plans; however, a medical device industry customer had an immediate production need; therefore, we accelerated our installation plans,” says Annette Lund, vice president. Diversified Plastics is now equipped to assemble, sonic weld and package parts all in a clean environment. In addition, it will inventory and deliver the customer’s product as needed.

“This gives us a big competitive advantage by offering these value-added services for our customers,” says Joe Bourgeault, quality director. “Now our customers make only one stop to have their products molded, assembled, packaged and inventoried.”

Clean room facilities are not commonly found at plastics injection molders. The Diversified Plastics clean room is certified to ISO 14644-1 class 8 standards, which means the filtered air in the clean room contains no more than 100,000 particles larger than 0.5 micron in size per cubic foot of air.
