Cleanroom expansion to help implant manufacturer increase capacity


Heritage Worldwide, Inc., a provider of pre-filled breast implants worldwide, announced that it is expanding its manufacturing capacity to accommodate the 38 percent increase in demand projected for fiscal 2007-from 105,000 units in 2006 to 145,000 units.

In order to increase production levels, the company plans to expand its cleanroom. The expansion is expected to increase manufacturing capacity 275 percent.

According to Jean-Claude Mas, chairman and CEO of Heritage Worldwide, “Our recent success is due primarily to the increase in the number of countries where we’ve been marketing our implants (new sale authorizations). In particular, we made substantial headway into Brazil and Argentina.”
