Pia Kumar, director of corporate development for Mayfield Plastics, a custom thermoforming company based in Sutton, Massachusetts, can vouch for medical device OEMs’ reliance on suppliers that have experience in medical manufacturing. Mayfield, which recently completed a highly cosmetic, complex, multi-piece housing assembly for a major medical OEM customer, has more than 40 years of experience in the industry. The company has won awards from the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) Thermoforming Division in multiple categories, including Best Pressure Formed Parts.
“When a new customer comes to us, they want to know that they are working with a company with experience, a company that understands the highly cosmetic and functionally exacting requirements of this market,” said Kumar. “Along with Mayfield’s track record of successfully working with major medical device OEMs, our in-house engineering, design services and tooling are important differentiators for customers.” For more on Mayfield Plastics, see the feature, “A Medical Device Manufacturer’s Dream.”
