Tecomet opened its new Boulder, Colorado location focused exclusively on ISO-certified manufacturing of medical devices. The new space is twice the size of its previous facility, bringing greater capacity to grow with new equipment and focus on new product innovation and development. The new location is located close to key customers, allowing for collaboration and responsiveness to their needs. In addition to the move, Tecomet plans to increase employment by almost 25% by year’s end.
The grand opening was celebrated in-person on May 19 with the employees, company management, key customers and members of the local Chamber of Commerce. The ribbon cutting was followed by an introductory video and tour of the facility, demonstrating the new capabilities and benefits of the expansion. Additional focused virtual tours were held with other key customers to celebrate this important milestone throughout the day.
Products manufactured by Tecomet in Boulder include devices used in minimally invasive, computer assisted and robotic surgeries. The new location allowed Tecomet to add 25 machines to its current 62, which include mills, lathes, Swiss turning machines and robotic automation equipment.
“We are expanding to grow our business with our global customer base, as well as increase our footprint with other medical-device customers in Boulder,” said John Malter, General Manager of the Tecomet Boulder site. “Proximity means being able to provide deliveries within minutes, as well as allowing us to develop deeper understanding and adapt to their changing needs, to make us stronger together.”
