Precision Engineered Products Open Facility in Caribbean
Posted on June 22, 2012 @ 08:13 am
Precision Engineered Products LLC (PEP), based in Attleboro, Mass., is opening a new manufacturing facility in the Dominican Republic. This will increase the company’s global manufacturing presence; it already has locations in China, Brazil, Mexico, and the Netherlands, as well as the United States.
The facility is 5,000 square feet, and it is a Class 8 medical manufacturing space. It is located in the Zona Franca Industrial (free economic zone) in San Pedro de Macorís—an area that is very lightly taxed.
“The new Precision Engineered Products medical manufacturing facility in the Dominican Republic better positions PEP to deliver the highest quality surgical and medical devices and components to our customers at the best possible value,” PEP President and CEO Alan Huffenus said of the initiative. “This strategic investment increases PEP’s manufacturing agility, and ultimately improves support of our customers’ operations worldwide.”
The Dominican Republic facility is the second PEP operation devoted principally to medical manufacturing. The company’s Bridgeport, Conn., location is home to medical and surgical business units Lacey Manufacturing and Boston Endo-Surgical Technologies.
Brands produced by PEP include Boston Endo-Surgical Technologies, Brainin, General Metal Finishing, Lacey, microPEP, Polymet, and Wauconda.
