Since 1984, Pentagon Plastics Group has been heavily involved in the production and development of ostomy products and fluid draining components. This area of the healthcare sector has been one of Pentagon’s key repeat production lines for many years and has provided tremendous growth.
Pentagon Plastics Group works closely with its customers in all sectors, lending experience and know-how to assist in the development of products through to production. Pentagon’s general experience has certainly helped in the medical sector and its specific experience in ostomy has allowed them to provide support to companies developing a range of one- and two-piece stoma care solutions.
Gabby Day, Communications Manager at Pentagon commented: “Confidentiality remains an integral part of the service, and using our experience to develop key medical products is very rewarding especially when you truly understand the positive change it can make to a user’s life.
“Recent events have bought unprecedented change, and manufacturers specifically providing key products into the medical industry have become paramount, as the industry continues to support the NHS.”
“Since the beginning of the year, we have seen a major increase in the level of new enquiries for Stoma care and other key medical products here at Pentagon and recently the demand for the respirator and ventilator components we mould has exploded.”
Pentagon is well placed to support businesses as they look to bring products to market, due to their extensive expertise in medical moulding, with both moulding and toolmaking divisions certified to ISO9001:15 standards.
Pentagon’s moulding technicians are highly skilled in the processing of a wide range of medical-grade thermoplastics and are fully supported by a network of key material suppliers.
During these very difficult times, it is encouraging to see the level of customer interest grow in UK manufacturing services and we are confident that this is a true indication of a changing tide, which will see many industries thrive once again in Great Britain.
