Tegra Medical has purchased additional premises close to its Franklin, MA headquarters and an expansion of its space in Hernando, MS. Together they will increase the company’s square footage by more than 53% to 356,000 square feet, as it continues to grow in the medical device manufacturing industry.
The company’s Quick Wire and Tubing business, which provides in-stock and custom-finished metal wire and hypotubing, will gain its own dedicated space as it becomes the building’s first occupant later in 2020. Other manufacturing operations will be phased into the building soon after that.
Hal Blenkhorn, Franklin general manager, said: “This is our biggest expansion yet. As large as the space is already, the property can accommodate expansion to more than triple the building footprint in the future, positioning Tegra Medical for a continued growth path.”
The Hernando, MS location is adding 4,000 square feet to house a new manufacturing cell with advanced, automated machinery.
Randy Sible, Hernando general manager, said: “With the new space we will combine operations and increase technology that will allow us to run faster and more efficiently.”
Mike Treleaven, Tegra Medical vice president, added: “Tegra Medical’s renowned ability to manufacture highly-complicated devices with the utmost precision creates a continually growing demand for our services. By growing organically, we are expanding smoothly without disrupting existing operations.”
