ACCUMOLD HAS PRESENCE IN STUTTGART FOR EUROPE’S LEADING MEDICAL MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY TRADE SHOW

Accumold’s marketing team is bound for Stuttgart, Germany next week to tout the company’s expertise in super-micromolded parts production at MEDTEC Europe 2011, the leading European trade show for the medical manufacturing industry.

The countries of Western European countries represent a total market of more than 400 million people and had a combined gross domestic product of $14.8 trillion in 2010. The total medical device market was valued at $58.3 billion in 2008 and is forecast to grow to $82.4 billion in the next five years.

“The European medical products market is already huge and showing robust gains as the continent’s population grows older, much like America’s baby boomer generation,” said Accumold vice president of sales and marketing Paul Runyan. “In addition, like the United States, Europe is experiencing a demand for state-of-the-art treatments that require the latest equipment. Accu-mold is a leader in providing mission-critical parts for equipment that is already in high demand.”

MEDTEC Europe 2011 will bring more than 900 exhibitors together with over 13,000 decisions makers from engineering, design manufacturing and management for the largest event in trade show’s nine-year history. Organizers describe MEDTEC Europe as “the right event for everybody involved in the supply chain of medical device manufacturing and exhibitors provide insights into the latest in raw materials, manufacturing technologies for metal and plastics processing, as well as outsourcing and components.”

MEDTEC’s prestigious conference and innovation-forum are considered a must for professionals seeking to broaden their knowledge of practical and regulatory issues.

Since its inception in 1985, Accumold’s mission has been the production of super-micro, ultra-precision, plastic injection-molded parts. Parts manufactured by the firm are critical components of the medical, automotive, military, aerospace and telecommunications industries. They can be found in micro-electronics, cell phones, telecommunications, surgical tools, hearing aids, medical devices, antennas, connectors and more. To produce those parts, Accumold builds specialized molding machines engineered to handle volumes from prototypes to millions per year while maintaining consistent, precise tolerances that are unique in the industry.
