Company News: Curetis and Scholz Collaborate to Industrialize and Scale-Up Production of Unyvero(TM) Cartridge Plastics Parts
– German family firm ‘Scholz-HTIK – High Tech in Kunststoff’ has been selected by Curetis based on systematic benchmarking process –
Curetis AG today announced a strategic supply chain partnership with German family business Horst Scholz GmbH + Co. KG for the production of high-quality plastics parts for its Unyvero™ Cartridge.
Under the agreement, Curetis will invest more than € 2 million in multi-cavity tools for all Unyvero™ Cartridge plastics parts. Curetis has already ordered several multi-cavity tools from Scholz. The first tools will be delivered in early 2013.
Scholz has been chosen by Curetis due to its unrivalled experience and expertise in medical device-grade injection molding, its state-of-the-art facilities and equipment as well as its cleanroom manufacturing infrastructure.
Scholz has a long track record and outstanding commitment to total quality management, e.g. regarding the use of CT scanners for quality control of parts. Curetis expects a smooth transition from its previous R&D phase supplier to the serial production and scale-up run by its new partner Scholz.
