Building the Future: Poly-Med, Inc. expands medical device manufacturing facilities in the Upstate

Poly-Med, Inc. (PMI), the leader in bioresorbable materials and medical device development, has recently opened a state of the art development and manufacturing facility located outside of Greenville, South Carolina. This new facility greatly expands PMI’s capabilities to offer medical device development for  medical-grade electrospinning, extrusion, additive manufacturing, and technical textile processes in a certified ISO Class 8 environment. 

The facility was recently certified according to ISO: 13485:2016 Medical Devices – Quality Management Systems. The quality management system (QMS) applies to all activities including the design, development and manufacture of absorbable polymers, fibers, sutures, medical textiles, and biomedical products.  

Manufacturing in an established and controlled environment greatly improves the reproducibility of sensitive processes, such as electrospinning. The ability to control the manufacturing conditions removes variability as processes are scaled while allowing for the production of highly consistent materials, suited for clinical applications.

PMI’s President, David Shalaby, stated “The expansion of our facilities demonstrates PMI’s dedication to build an infrastructure for custom medical device development. Our focus within the specialty resorbable material field continues our long history of designing and manufacturing first in class products. We look forward to continuing to support our clients in their medical device design and resorbable implant needs that improve the quality of life for patients.” 

The expansion of PMI’s facilities is an investment in the ever-growing life sciences community in the Southeast, particularly in South Carolina. South Carolina is home to an $11+ Billion industry with over 670 dedicated life science firms. To learn more about PMI or the opening of the new facility, please contact PMI.
