Tekni-Plex expands extruded medical tubing

Tekni-Plex, a US manufacturer of innovative packaging materials, medical compounds and precision-crafted medical tubing solutions has acquired Dunn Industries, a manufacturer of specialty extrusion tubing for medical device applications.

Dunn, based in Manchester, New Hampshire, specialises in tight tolerance, small diameter medical device tubing; as well as in a wide range of thermoplastic materials, offering both standard and custom-engineered tubing solutions. Its product line is also a complementary addition to the microextrusion tubing manufactured by Tekni-Plex’s Natvar business unit.

The Pennsylvania-headquartered Tekni-Plex already has a significant stake in the medical device market via its Colorite medical compounds and Natvar medical tubing business. It operates manufacturing sites across eight countries worldwide

The Dunn acquisition, Tekni-Plex’s seventh acquisition made in the past four years, will also augment the non-PVC materials in the Tekni-Plex portfolio, such as polyurethane, PEEK, acetyl, nylon, EVA and TPE. According to Paul J. Young, President and CEO of Tekni-Plex, the takeover will “help make Tekni-Plex an even stronger partner to medical device companies around the world”.
