Medical Molding for Life

Since 1989 ProMed has been a leading force in the art and science of medical molding to address an industry need for cleanroom molding of silicone components and assemblies. With our primary focus to manufacture components which have medical applications which are short-term and long-term implantable that are intricately designed silicone and plastic components. Our innovative processes include molding of components and automated assembly- including assembly of complete devices. Over the years, we have evolved into a full-service provider of molded parts and assembled products, including molded silicone components, biomaterial grade plastic components, combination components (incorporating pharmaceuticals) and value added assemblies.

We utilize state-of-the art technology, draw from an experienced technical community, and take a creative systematic approach to provide you with a dependable, high-quality and overall cost-effective solution to your manufacturing needs. ProMed has the resources, quality systems and facilities to meet most dimensional and cosmetic print specifications and comply with rigorous industry standards. ProMed has garnered the reputation as the world’s benchmark for molded components and assemblies – and is one of a handful of companies in the world to provide contract manufacturing of drug-eluting products. Facilities are in Minneapolis, MN and Dorado, Puerto Rico with a total of 97,000 square feet of manufacturing space and approximately 175 employees.

Our innovative processes range from simply molding components to automated assembly to providing complete devices. We utilize state-of-the art technology, draw from an experienced technical community, and take a creative systematic approach to provide you with a dependable, high-quality and overall cost effective solution to your manufacturing needs.

Over the years, we have evolved into a full-service provider of molded parts and assembled products, including molded silicone components, biomaterial grade plastic components, combination components (pharmaceuticals into silicone) and value added assemblies. Through multiple media platforms, ProMed’s collaborative Design for Manufacturability (DFM) meetings include a diverse group of engineering experience that work to provide you with the best path that will meet your requirements, budget and timeline.
