LONDON - Carclo Technical Plastics Ltd (CTP) announces that it has expanded its manufacturing facility in Doddaballapur near Bangalore, India, enabling it to continue serving existing customers in the electronics industry and target the growing local medical market.
CTP’s facility is accredited to ISO 9001 (ISO13485 pending) and has a capacity for approximately 40 injection moulding machines plus assembly capability. Key to the expansion is a new medical hall, equipped with state-of-the-art, all-electric injection moulding machines from leading supplier Fanuc.
CTP has invested in new manufacturing space, injection moulding machines, ancillaries and specialist staff in Bangalore as it targets medical customers in the region. The expansion also provides significant scope for growth.
CTP India Managing Director Gary Allan stated “Carclo Technical Plastics was initially established in Bangalore in 2007 with support from Suprajit Engineering, a long term partner of Carclo. This was followed by construction of a new, purpose-built operation in the same location in 2010. The business has built a strong reputation for high quality, reliable supply and customer service. CTP’s global facilities have long been involved in manufacture of disposable diagnostic and delivery devices and we are delighted to be expanding our facility in Bangalore and targeting medical plastic component opportunities in India.”
