GERMANTOWN — Tooling, molding and equipment technologies firm MGS Manufacturing is working to consolidate operations at its Germantown plant, as it invests $20 million to create a new Healthcare Center of Excellence, according to a company press release.

Built to streamline success for its strategic health care customers, the center integrates MGS’s capabilities and creates new expanded cleanroom capacity through a 13,000square-foot Class 8 cleanroom addition. The new cleanroom at the Maple Road plant will house 20 injection molding machines, world-class automation assembly cells and associated auxiliary equipment, with press tonnage from 160 to 650, according to the press release.

The center will bring together MGS’s U.S.-based tooling, molding and equipment divisions under one roof, further maximizing current resources and driving enhanced customer performance and growth, according to the company press release.

“This center strategically positions us to continue setting the industry standard of excellence across each area of our business while answering customer demands for an integrated, single source of supply,” said MGS CEO Greg Adams.

“By combining our tooling, molding and equipment technologies, we increase accountability and decrease complexity — driving down costs, increasing speed-to-market, mitigating risk and transferring knowledge from one area of our business to the next. We need to deliver excellence all the way from pellet to patient,” he said.

As the Center of Excellence is completed later this year, the company will consolidate its Illinois operations into the Germantown facility. Illinois employees will be offered positions within the Germantown operations.

Amy Schermetzler, MGS marketing and communications manager, said the new center will open up 115 new jobs in Germantown. She said they hope to retain all of their Illinois employees, while continuing to hire to fulfill the needs of the new center.

“Combining our teams on a single campus opens up significant opportunities for employees to expand their knowledge and leverage their expertise in new and increasingly meaningful ways. Enhanced collaboration and cross-functional teams will drive the innovation and entrepreneurial spirit that has been a hallmark of MGS since its inception,” said MGS President Paul Manley. “As we look to the future, we are truly excited about the enhanced value we can produce for our healthcare customers as we create new ways to partner with them to accelerate their success.”
