New Tijuana Medical Clean Room Facility

Brentwood Industries, Inc.  expanded operations to Tijuana, Mexico  with a new manufacturing clean room facility in early 2018. The new facility just south of San Diego, California, represents Brentwood’s first strategic international manufacturing expansion site in Latin America. Brentwood has leased a 35,000-square foot clean room facility in the modern Thomas Alva Edison Industrial Park and is expected to invest $3.5 million dollars in the build out. The Reading, Pennsylvania-based medical packaging and thermoplastic molding company has had its sights on the  medical manufacturinghub of Tijuana for quite some time.

Brentwood explains that it’s the breadth of their product portfolio that has enabled their geographical expansion. Though their Tijuana facility will focus on thermoformed medial packaging, they also have product applications for industrial batteries, cooling towers, storm water management, transportation, and water and wastewater.

To serve customers in all these markets Brentwood already maintains seven US facilities from coast to coast and three international operations located in Thailand, the Czech Republic, and India.

Walter Banta is one of the managing directors of Brentwood’s Specialty Products Group, under which the new Tijuana facility falls. By expanding to Tijuana, Brentwood’s international expansion model aims to deliver value to current and potential customers in their local geographies. This new site will also provide a critical capability: operational redundancy. Brentwood is confident that adding a new ISO Class 7 clean room environment will offer medical OEMs the security and flexibility required for critical projects.

"Tijuana's continued development as a major medical manufacturing hub has placed it on our radar since 2014" - Walter Banta

Brentwood joins over 44 medical device manufacturing companies already in TijuanaInternational mainstays such as Care Fusion, Medtronic, DJO International and Greatbatch Medical, amongst others, are a draw for other US manufacturing companieslooking to get closer to their existing customer base.

Brentwood is certainly looking for new medical customers in Tijuana. We develop strategic supplier partnerships with medical customers of all sizes and specialties. We expect and are planning for an unending stream of new product industrialization within our site

Co-Production International  helped Brentwood with it's expansion to Mexico providing support with site selection, cost analysis evaluation, tenant improvements and the successful establishment of their new clean room facility. CPI also manages Brentwood's daily administrative fuctions under the CPI's Shelter Program.

"Brentwood is a family-owned, family-operated business. Aligning with CPI as another family-owned business provides us with peace-of-mind regarding shared understanding of business drivers and goals.  Brentwood would certainly recommend CPI to other companies,”

- Walter Banta

CPI has been true partners throughout the discovery process, offering extremely valuable insights and support. As we move into the construction and business execution phase, their local presence and expertise has allowed us to move both rapidly and comfortably. "

“Brentwood has many existing medical customers in Tijuana. By opening a manufacturing site in close proximity to our existing customer base, we can better serve them by offering faster order turnaround times, reduced freight costs and strategic inventory control options”
