TEQ (Thermoform Engineered Quality) Company Profile
Qualifications: ISO 9001, ISO 13485, CGMP Certified, Supplier to Medical Manufacturers, Exhibitor in at least 2 MD&M and/or MEDTEC shows
Markets Supplied: North America, Europe
We know that medical packaging system design and validation are a critical element to patient safety. That’s why, like everything we do, each and every one of our medical packaging designs are executed with absolute precision. It’s also why we have partnered with the best experts in medical device packaging systems, Spartan Design Group, and why we have brought Belco sealing machines in-house to verify compatibility of parts and ensure the success of your project.
Together with our partners, our medical packaging capabilities and experience are second to none – from selecting materials through to product testing and validation of the manufacturing process.
And, if the solution doesn’t exist, we have the knowledge and expertise to develop one:
TEQethylene™ Sterile Barrier System (SBS) Solution
- Uses a proprietary blend of HDPE in combination with TYVEK® lidding by DuPont™ (also made from HDPE) for a mono material, more easily recycled package
- Backed by stability data through research conducted by our partners at Spartan Design Group
TEQconnex™ – The next evolution of TEQethylene with a co-extruded heat seal layer
- Offers total package cost savings
- Eliminates adhesive flaking often caused during shipping, sterilization or the heat sealing process
- Has shorter ETO sterilization cycles for the complete system
Medical Device Manufacturing
At TEQ, we are dedicated to quality, which means we’ll do anything we need to ensure the safe and efficient manufacturing of medical devices – a commitment that led us to become one of the first thermoformers in the United States to become ISO 13485:2003 Registered.
In addition to maintaining this preferred certification, we are continuously working towards meeting the ISO 11607 Standards, the foremost guidance document for validating packaging for terminally sterilized medical devices.
Guided by these internationally recognized standards, we have achieved advanced levels of process validation, risk management, traceability of products and compliance with quality and safety regulations resulting in superior audit performance and unsurpassed quality in our medical device manufacturing.
In November of 2015, TEQ acquired Fremont Plastics, a mid-sized custom-thermoforming company that produces medical trays, medical packaging and medical light handle covers, allowing us to add to the medical thermoform products we already manufacture, such as the disposable probe covers for world-leading Braun infrared ear thermometers.
Just a few months later, in February of 2016, we acquired the thermoform plastic and pulp packaging firm Plastique with manufacturing units in Nottingham, England and Poznan, Poland. This addition was critical in allowing us to offer a wider range of sustainable packaging to our customers as well as to support global and European-based medical device and pharmaceutical companies at levels never-before possible. For example, we now have the ability to seamlessly incorporate our proprietary sterile barrier materials/systems such as TEQethylene™ and TEQconnex™ into medical packaging solutions for companies with a global presence. These capabilities will be further enhanced by a state-of-the-art ISO 13485:2016 registered cleanroom facility that we began building in Plastique’s Nottingham manufacturing facility which is scheduled to be completed in Q2, 2017.
