Biomedical Structures ramps up its biomedical textile development with facility expansion, new vice president of R&D

WARWICK, RHODE ISLAND, January 8, 2013-

Biomedical Structures LLC (BMS), a developer of biomedical textiles for medical devices and other advanced clinical applications, today announced the expansion of its facilities for medical textile development and manufacturing. The expansion includes a 10,000 sq.-foot addition, which will support the engineering center for new product development, and a significant increase in total cleanrooms for biomedical textile development. BMS has complemented this expanded capacity with the appointment of medical device industry veteran Jonathan Howe to vice president of research and development.

New ultrasonic and roll-to-roll triple cleaning capabilities are part of the expanded cleanroom space, which triples BMS' 2011 total. BMS has also increased weaving capacity with advanced equipment to accommodate demand for vascular grafts, synthetic tendons and orthopedic tissue repair, and other woven textile structures. Howe will bring more than 15 years of experience developing solutions for the spine, sports medicine, and interventional cardiovascular markets to help BMS meet the precise performance requirements of these device textiles.
