Eakin Surgical expands medical device contract manufacturing capabilities



Cardiff-based single-use surgical instruments manufacturer Eakin Surgical is to scale up its contract manufacturing services, helping medical device OEMs reduce costs, meet rising demand for sterile packaging and weather supply shortages.

The coronavirus pandemic led to an increased demand for both sterile packaging solutions and single-used medical equipment, with healthcare facilities taking steps to curb the spread of infection.

Having delivered ethylene oxide (EtO) sterilisation services and sterile packing services for a number of years, Eakin Surgical is now entering into the medical device contract manufacturing segment to offer more value-added services to its customers.

The new service is set to benefit OEMs by offering a wide range of medical device manufacturing, from plastics injection moulding to assembly and packaging in an ISO Class 8 cleanroom, and EtO sterilisation.

The company also has significant experience in sourcing hard-to-find parts and components for complex medical devices.

Eakin Surgical will help businesses to realise cost efficiencies and optimise their supply chain in light of rising demand and logistics disruptions.

Matthew Krolak, Business Development Manager at Eakin Surgical, said:

“Eakin Surgical is a well-respected manufacturer of single-use-surgical instruments that are sold worldwide, and we have long been a trusted partner to the NHS.

“Having serviced the industry for over 20 years, the creation of a new contract manufacturing service is an exciting development that allows us to offer our knowledge and expertise to support the recovery of elective care and meet rising demand for sterile packing and single-use instruments worldwide, offering businesses access to high-quality, cost-effective and reliable solutions.”

The new Contract Manufacturing programme will offer the same rigorous quality control procedures and reliable solutions, the company said.

Local systems are working hard to recover elective services to pre-pandemic levels, with many manufacturers are still struggling to catch up with sudden increased demand for parts and products.

Eakin Surgical can help OEMs meet challenges, from reducing operating costs to  navigating regulatory hurdles.

Krolak added:

“Regardless of whether you are bringing a new device to market and need assistance with design or regulatory processes or if you have an established product and need to increase your production ability, we can help.”
