Coastal Life Technologies increases sales and output by over 40 % in 18 months.

Coastal Life Technologies (CLT) is an outsource manufacturer and distributor of sterile, single-use medical devices, headquartered in San Antonio, Texas.

Since moving into the new 40,000 square foot facility in September, 2007, CLT has seen some dramatic changes and efficiencies in every aspect of production. Employing over 100 combined management and production personnel to date, the new facility has generated an increase in sales of 44% and production output of 40% - all in just a little over 18 months.

The continued implementation of lean manufacturing techniques, such as Kanban and back flush, has allowed CLT to achieve greater efficiencies in the production of sterile disposable products. In addition, added equipment purchases such as video inspection for fiber optic manufacturing, on-demand tubing cutters, and additional sealing and packaging stations have all contributed to increased output and quality control. The company has also added soft goods capabilities for specialized wound care products.

The facility chosen for the 2007 move had a 5-year plan for growth. With the current pace of production, it has brought to the forefront the need to expand once again. Future plans will include a facility expansion in late 2009 or 2010 within the existing business park location.
