Contract Manufacturing Firm Coastal Life Technologies Commencing Major Expansion of Clean Room Facility in San Antonio, Texas

Coastal Life Technologies, a San Antonio-based contract manufacturing outsource provider focused on delivering turn-key services for medical devices, is adding a second ISO Class 8 clean room to its manufacturing facilities. The company, based in San Antonio, Texas, expects the expansion to be complete within 12 months.

The new controlled environment production area will be built to align raw materials between the two clean rooms to maximize efficiency. The additional room will raise the total controlled production areas to approximately 20,000 square feet.

“Our growth over the last few years and our projections for the coming years necessitate that we expand at this time. In so doing, we can continue to provide capacity for outsourcing solutions for our current and future clients,” said Coastal Life Technologies Chief Operating Officer, David Huff.

Final Assembly & Sterile Packaging

CLT can perform a variety of assembly processes and packaging operations in our 8,000 square foot ISO Class 8 clean room. Our primary expertise is in assembling and packaging sterile, single-use, disposable surgical devices.

We engineer processes and streamline manufacturing to allow for greater efficiencies, lowering cost to our customers. Our team reviews the specific assembly requirements and selects the best systems for the product. Lean Manufacturing tenets such as pull systems, back flushing, and Kanbans are utilized to maintain and maximize production control and efficiency.

Product quality should not depend on inspection after production; it should be inherent to the design and manufacturing processes. Quality is always a part of our process engineering. A quality assurance plan suited to your product requirements will be established, including the quality benchmarks used in our continuous improvement efforts.

Process validation is integral to the final packaging of all sterile devices that we manufacture. We can package in pouches or trays depending on what is best suited for your product. CLT continues to monitor the packaging process as part of our ongoing quality plans to ensure package integrity.
