“Our customers are looking for more vertical integration. The new nearshore plant and our new capabilities in medical injection molding are significant milestones in Phase 2's growing abilities to meet and even exceed our client’s expectations; while also attracting new customers seeking high-quality contract medical manufacturing.“

"Phase 2 was set up in Tijuana in months, and the only way it was possible was through the efforts of CPI. CPI visited our plant in New Hampshire to get an excellent understanding of what we do, how we do it, the space we needed, and the level of expertise required by our labor force. These details allowed them to search the available real estate, as well as calibrate themselves on what style of employee Phase 2 requires."
