This is an exciting new area for Linamar to grow, and one in which we have already proven we can excel.”

Linamar’s quality management system has demonstrated it can meet the required industry standards for medical devices. By utilizing the Linamar global operating structure and manufacturing footprint, Linamar plans to manufacture precision medical components and complex medical device assemblies for the global medical market. Potential targeted products include surgical, respiratory, and imaging devices and precision components for devices, orthopedics, and prosthesis.

“Linamar has demonstrated we can supply this market with high-quality products at competitive prices,” said Jim Jarrell, Linamar’s President and COO. “Medical devices and precision medical components are a market where we see we can add immediate value by leveraging our scale and capabilities to bring innovative, high-quality, and cost-effective solutions to customers. Linamar’s capabilities in manufacturing, supply chain and program management can be leveraged to offer medical equipment OEMs advanced contract manufacturing solutions, for better products at a better price. Our history in innovation and lean manufacturing principles points to a strong future for Linamar MedTech to deliver value to our customers and stakeholders.”
