Medrad opens new Pennsylvania manufacturing facility
Medrad, a provider of medical devices and services for imaging procedures, has opened a new manufacturing facility that will produce disposable components for its vascular injection systems.

The 120,000-square-foot facility currently employs 70 people, with potential employment anticipated to reach hundreds of new jobs over the next several years, according to the Clinton Township, Pa.-based company.

John P. Friel, president and CEO of Medrad, said the new facility “provides us with needed additional plant capacity in the short term, and its phased growth design gives us the capacity to add production lines in the future.”

The building is also designed to be LEED (leadership in energy and environmental design) certified, which requires that a building meet measures and tests of its energy efficiency and environmentally friendly construction through use of natural lighting, biodegradable materials and construction practices that reduce human impact on the site.
