Minneapolis, MINN — February 2, 2015 — Diversified Plastics, Inc. has installed a 1,300 square foot controlled environment production room inside their manufacturing facility. With this expansion, additional clean space is available for use in product assembly and packaging operations with increased cleanliness requirements.
“We’re excited about the possibilities that our new clean area brings to the company,” said Joni Davis, sales engineer. “We really needed a unique space where parts assembly and packaging operations could be performed in a clean environment—away from other production areas. Our customers in the medical device and aerospace industries are requiring more of their parts to be assembled and packaged in facilities that ensure contaminants are kept at a minimum. The growth of our business necessitated we build a room of this type, while providing us an opportunity to exceed customer requirements.”
The environmentally controlled space is a separate room with its own ventilation system. “Our objective was to establish a clean space that was more conducive for medical device assembly and packaging,” said Joe Bourgeault, director of quality. “This facility allows us to improve workflow while creating an awareness among employees of higher quality production requirements.” This visible level of clean assembly and packaging is important to not only employees, but to visiting customers. “We give tours to OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) and they are very impressed with our focus on enhanced production and our ability to meet their specialized product needs,” adds Davis.
