Medical plastics and device manufacturing
VEM is an integrated partner from design assistance and design for manufacturing to finished device production and assembly. Our fully owned tool shops, cleanroom production, assembly and sub-assembly capabilities provide rich opportunities to partner with us, no matter which stage your product is in.
Our experienced team uses the newest equipment and automation, including brands such as Arburg, Toshiba, GF, Hexagon and Makino.
Being transparent when producing parts is what makes us stand out. Not only will we set up the production in accordance with all your needs but we can also help to improve process quality and reduce cycle times.
In-house medical tooling
VEM’s in-house medical molds have helped us develop medical parts for molding and assembly for years. Our fully owned mold manufacturer consistently gives us complete control over molds and materials, allowing for optimal quality control.
Optimisation, rigorous quality testing, and a professional approach to solving problems have always been our key approaches. Our molds are used worldwide by large medical companies, including Danaher Corporation, Cepheid, Foamtec Medical and Freudenberg Medical.
Cleanroom molding and assembly
VEM can offer services in design assistance, prototyping, production mold making, injection molding in a white room or cleanroom, component sourcing, assembly, testing and packaging.
Both inside and outside our cleanroom, we have room and equipment for various sizes of injection machines. Our cleanroom is built in a modular way, which allows us to be flexible and increase size as quickly as possible according to customers’ needs.
Three of our global locations include high-tech tool shops, which enable us to quickly develop molds from prototype to production, as well as perform maintenance and repairs.
Thinking about moving production out of China? Facing rising costs and import/export issues with medical device production in China, VEM helps clients with an expedited manufacturing transfer of plastic injection molding and assembly projects from China to Thailand with their supply chains intact.
VEM has been manufacturing in Thailand for 13 years and medical device manufacturing project transfers are among our most popular services and can be set up and running within just a few weeks.

Medical plastics and device manufacturing in Thailand
Manufacturing in Southeast Asia offers a lower price point, more flexibility, and a faster time to market than domestic manufacturing can provide. For more than 13 years, VEM has operated its wholly-owned manufacturing operation in Rayong, Thailand. The largest port in Thailand, Laem Chabang Port, is just a 30-minute drive from our facility and many large medical device and healthcare manufacturers are located nearby.
There is an undeniable reason behind the growth of the medical device manufacturing industry in Thailand. The location is strategically attractive due to a skilled and educated workforce, a welcoming and open economy with a stable government, quality infrastructure, lower cost of labour and reduced import taxes, and ease of import/export of raw materials and components.
