Over the last 50 years, Europlaz has provided design, engineering and manufacturing expertise for the medical device industry. We work across the entire life cycle of a product: from concept design, to manufacturing, to after-market services.
Whether you are looking for a complete turnkey solution, or are just supplementing your internal capabilities, Europlaz has the background and flexibility to meet your needs. We specialise in producing the highest quality plastic injection moulding parts, sub-assemblies and finished medical devices.
The medical device design and development stage involves complex processes that Europlaz aims to make as simple as possible for you. We can manage all aspects from the specification of the tooling, tool commissioning, first samples, validation, production of batches for clinical trials, in house tool modifications – all the way through to the supply of large batches ready for clinical use.
Since 1970 we have built a reputation for innovation, quality, and cost-effectiveness.
We use our experience and state-of-the-art technology to streamline all stages of the medical device manufacturing process for you – moving your product quickly and safely through development, and speeding up regulatory approval of medical devices.
Our UK-based ISO 13485 certified and FDA-compliant facility means that we have complete control of the process, from under one roof.
We are flexible, and resourceful, and can take on projects of any size. Our clients range from small start-ups to international blue chip medical device suppliers.
