Contract Manufacturing Firm Coastal Life Technologies Expands Client Service Offerings with New Equipment

Coastal Life Technologies, a San Antonio-based contract manufacturing outsource provider focused on delivering turn-key services for medical devices, has ordered a second automated system for handling coiled tubing. The systems cut tubing to length, coils it in pre-determined diameters, and bands it in place to retain the shape automatically, which will enable Coastal Life Technologies to keep up with increased demand.

This is in addition to the company’s existing automated tubing system and its recent acquisition of a horizontal form, fill, and sealing machine to provide flexible or semi-rigid packaging with sterile barriers for its clients.

Coastal Life Technologies is gearing up for the world’s largest Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) event next month. The Medical Device & Manufacturing West show is February 8-11 in Anaheim, California.

“We are experiencing unprecedented growth with a number of our clients and we will continue to reinvest in our hardware to keep up with our clients’ needs to produce and ship their products on a global scale,” said Coastal Life Technologies Chief Operating Officer, David Huff.
