Coastal Life Technologies (CLT), a contract manufacturing outsource provider focused on delivering turn-key services for medical devices, is building a new 135,000 square foot headquarters in San Antonio, Texas.

The new building will also include warehousing and distribution facilities.

This new building will enable us to streamline our services, from process engineering all the way to end user distribution, with maximum efficiency and room to grow,” 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.
