Northfield Automation creates Northfield Medimation subsidiary to diversify into medical device industry

Northfield Medimation : 15 February, 2008  (New Product)
Northfield Automation has set up Northfield Medimation, a wholly owned subsidiary that will diversify the company into the medical device market, and provide advanced automation and robotics for applications such as cardio-vascular devices and fabrication of transdermal patches, test strips and related diagnostic materials.
The company also announces the appointment of Jahn Stopperan as the subsidiary's general manager. Formerly principal of Technasport, a new product development company, Stopperan brings more than 20 years of experience in business management, marketing, sales, and product development to his new role at Northfield Medimation.

'The medical device industry is a stable market with many new opportunities for automation that can benefit by having FDA validation completed by the equipment provider,' according to Brett Reese, chairman and chief executive officer of Northfield Automation. 'In addition to medical, we are diversifying into the thin solar cell, electronic display and flexible battery industries to help us reach our growth goals of 25 percent per year.'

Customisation, reliability and validation are Northfield Medimation's competitive advantages based on its design-intensive focus and engineering expertise of its parent company.

Customised automation solutions are engineered to meet complex medical manufacturing requirements for single machines or integrated systems. Many applications are automated to reduce process variability, limit risk and reduce manual content.

Complete validation services include documentation materials designed to meet each customer's specifications and regulatory requirements. By outsourcing the validation task, medical device manufacturers can save post-production time as well as improve consistency and quality. Outsourcing also frees up engineering resources to focus on other production ramp-up areas. This customised service increases the customer's go-to-market confidence and guarantees equipment functionality.

Reliability of Northfield Medimation's processes and equipment is based on shared technical and manufacturing resources with its parent company. The company's market niche is middle-tier medical device manufacturers and divisions of larger med-tech companies, with needs ranging from small development projects to high-end, turnkey systems. Many of these customers may not have in-house validation capabilities.
