Trelleborg Group has, through its business area Trelleborg Sealing Solutions, signed an agreement and finalized the acquisition of the US-based company EirMed LLC. Based in Menomonie, Wisconsin, the company specializes in technical precision plastic injection-molded components, which are mainly applied in medical devices, such as those used for in-vitro diagnostics, minimally invasive surgery, and orthopedics.
The bolt-on acquisition, which will become part of Trelleborg Healthcare & Medical, was finalized by Trelleborg Group on April 25, 2022, and furthers Trelleborg’s ambition to be the partner of choice for medical device manufacturers, providing all materials, components and processes needed to deliver finished devices to market.
“Trelleborg Healthcare & Medical is globally known for our silicone rubber capabilities. We have also been recognized by key customers as their thermoplastic molding supplier of choice. Part of our strategy is to expand our capabilities beyond thermoplastic molding and liquid silicone rubber. To that end, EirMed is a much-needed addition to our business, bringing extensive medical device assembly experience and expanding our capabilities and capacity in thermoplastics. EirMed enables us to enter markets where we previously have not had a presence, specifically the bioresorbable and dental markets," said Linda Muroski, President of Trelleborg Global Healthcare & Medical.
Trelleborg Healthcare & Medical now comprises seven manufacturing facilities in the Americas and Europe, as well as a Rapid Development Center and its global headquarters in the Minneapolis, Minnesota area. The business serves customers globally with capabilities including silicone molding, extrusion, sheeting, dipping, and coating; overmolding; plastic injection molding; multicomponent manufacturing; drug-eluting technologies; engineered coated fabrics; and more.
