Medical device industry supplier doubles its floor space to increase machining capacity
CONCORD, Calif., Sept. 10, 2012 — Pulse Systems has recently completed a major expansion of its production facilities to house its growing capabilities in Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining, and to provide added space to its core contract manufacturing services for the medical device industry. Beyond its well-established capabilities in precision laser cutting and welding services, Pulse Systems now offers CNC machining of small custom components for medical devices.
"We are responding to customer requests for more complete 'one-stop' contract manufacturing solutions. This successful expansion project is a very tangible indication of our commitment to broadening our service offerings. Immediately following the completion of this new space, we took delivery of three additional CNC machine tools, and are currently scaling up our capabilities in small part machining," said Herb Bellucci, President and CEO of Pulse Systems, commenting on the importance of this announcement.
These newest machining capabilities are designed to leverage Pulse Systems' existing skills in laser machining and laser welding to provide medical device manufacturers with turn-key, ISO-certified sub-assembly services. "Over the years, we have built a great reputation for quality in laser cutting among our medical device customers. Now we can offer those same customers a much wider range of precision services, starting from basic tube cutting, all the way up to complete clean room sub-assemblies," said Demian Backs, Senior Director of Operations at Pulse Systems.
With the completion of this latest facility project, Pulse Systems now occupies the entire 18,300 square foot building at 4090 Nelson Avenue in Concord, California, which is located in the San Francisco Bay Area, the home of many innovative, fast-paced medical device companies. Over the last two years, the Company has doubled its total facility space to accommodate growth in its machining operations and in its overall business level.
