Trelleborg Healthcare & Medical was named one of the Top Ten Prototype Engineering Service Companies of 2022 for the innovative solutions its Rapid Development Center offers to medical device manufacturers.
“Trelleborg created the Rapid Development Center in response to our medical device customers’ needs to accelerate time to market, reduce the production cost of parts already in market, and improve the transition from design to serial production,” said Chris Tellers, Director of the Rapid Development Center.
“Since beginning operations in early 2021, the Rapid Development Center has already completed a substantial number of unique solutions, shipping over 3,500 prototypes before the end of the year, with some parts delivered as quickly as within four business days. This was achievable due to our unlimited machine availability and speedy streamlined process that help deliver prototypes to customers quickly.”
