Forefront Medical Technology (Singapore) announced this week that it has purchased a 20% stake in Arrow Medical (Herefordshire, U.K.).
Founded in 1989, Arrow Medical is a medical contract manufacturer with specialties in textiles, RF welding, silicond injection molding and cleanroom assembly.
“First, Arrow’s textile and RF welding capabilities broaden the portfolio of vertically integrated manufacturing capabilities we can provide. Second, we feel adding a UK manufacturing footprint enhances the support we can offer our European customer base. And finally, we see this as a good next step in more broadly supporting the manufacturing regionalization strategies of our global customer base,” said Walter Tarca, Forefront Medical Technology’s president.
Arrow Medical’s managing director Jolene Atkinson, touted Forefront’s frontend engineering capabilities and manufacturing capabilities.
Forefront is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Singapore-based VicPlas International.
