Prent Costa Rica, a leading custom thermoformer of medical device packaging in Latin America, is now ISO 13485:2003 certified for medical devices.

Although Prent Costa Rica has been open for less than two years, the demand for high quality Prent medical packaging is growing. The reasons are many.

After three years in development, Prent Corporation has introduced a new robust, durable orthopedic packaging material. It was designed to withstand the highly abrasive nature of porous coated implants, which can typically be extremely destructive to traditional packaging.

“For Prent Corporation, 2013 was an excellent year—with worldwide growth hitting double figures,” according to Joseph Pregont, Prent Corporation President and CEO. “It was a year of settling down after a tremendous amount of work in 2012 in Malaysia where we built a new facility, plus added a second facility in China.”

Several years ago in a bold move to help our customers reduce packaging costs, Prent Corporation—with our sister-company GOEX—embarked on an aggressive research and development program to create a medical-grade material that would provide OEMs with significant yield and cost advantages, excellent clarity and functionality.

Prent’s commitment is underway to have all global facilities ISO 13485 certified for medical devices. Already, Prent Denmark, Costa Rica and China have received certification.

Prent Corporation was recently honored with a prestigious 2014 Ameristar packaging award from the Institute of Packaging Professional’s (IoPP) for a unique thermoformed package designed to hold and protect a catheter used in cardiovascular angiography.

Across the globe, medical device companies are demanding suppliers provide products faster and less expensively. At Prent, that means we must always be examining the way we do business to ensure we are continually working smarter and faster.

Prent Corporation is on-the-grow. To accommodate the continuing expansion of our global operations, 7,000 sq. ft. of office space was recently added at our World Headquarters in Janesville, WI, USA, while other interior office space received a significant face-lift.
