OUR FEATURED PRODUCTS
A few years ago, Hunter Urology initiated the production of the world’s first biodegradable Emteva catheter made from a corn starch-based bioplastic – a challenging material to work with for any moulder. We had to find a medical moulding company with the expertise, accreditations and controlled manufacturing environment we’d need – along with the ability to make potentially tens of millions of moulded plastic parts. We looked at a few other injection moulding specialists, but when I visited Polymermedics they impressed me straight away: the clean facilities, their manufacturing capacity and their experience in the right types of injection moulding.
Polymermedics rose to the challenge, performing extensive trialling before greenlighting mass production and achieved the CE Mark required to manufacture our Class One sterile device. As the result of the moulder’s diligence, our prescription cost is actually 30p lower than a PVC catheter now – it could save governments millions. Moreover, this injection moulding company has an infinite amount of bespoke manufacturing solutions. We’re very happy with the final product, Polymermedics have got it down to a fine art.

In 2010 I started the development of a new point-of-care urine testing medical device. The product required several complex injection moulded plastic parts, and after an extensive search for the right partners, I met Polymermedics. Having visited a number of technically capable injection moulders, I chose to work with this company. Polymermedics offered not only a list of injection moulding services, but they also have a long-term approach to business, and have supported us as a consulting injection moulder for a number of years prior to any formal commercial relationship with them.
Working closely with our chosen injection moulder, toolmaker and mould analysis experts we were able to collaboratively develop a medical device that performs and is an extremely low cost to manufacture. With ERDF support, Clinical Design has invested over £1m in tooling to facilitate an efficient manufacturing centre in the UK. Company’s team have been excellent at advising and guiding us in a number of areas. I personally believe that Polymermedics is a highly capable injection moulder and I am looking forward to continue my business relationship with them as Clinical Design grows.

At Civil Defence UK, we are regularly faced with time-bound challenges. There is no room for mistakes when it comes to our industry. In spite of this being the case, some time ago we were having issues with our injection moulder, who failed to secure the plastic parts’ quality. It was high time to find another moulder to meet our requirements, so we contracted Polymermedics. As an experienced injection moulding company, Polymermedics has shown a high professionalism in transferring the tooling to their St. Austell-based facilities. The company validated the tools and the whole assembly process in a very quick time frame.
Changing our principal manufacturer has been the best decision. The moulding process has become robust and reliable. Polymermedics’ quality standards correspond to the world’s best practises while manufacturing procedures always stay up to date providing innovative solutions to enhance a product’s features. The moulder even keeps our product in stock, so it is able to react quickly to any new requirements which we never had before. Polymermedics would fit perfectly if you are in search of an injection moulding company that values your time.
