Critical Manufacturing, provider of future-ready Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) designed to augment the operability of smart factories in a push for Industry 4.0, has announced it has been awarded a contract by Nypro, the medical device specialist. 

Nypro has more than 40 years’ experience in meeting the complex demands of the diagnostic, medical device, pharmaceutical and consumer health markets. Its decision to implement a new manufacturing process management (MPM) with MES for shop floor-level operations, was based on the desire to eliminate manual processes associated with paper-based device and batch history records. The new system will sit between Nypro’s current PLM application and ERP system, and will be implemented across 15 plants.


Mohamed Benkirane, VP of medical device practice at Critical Manufacturing, stated: “We have been strategically focused on helping medical device manufacturers to drive efficiency; meet demand for cost-effective, increasingly sophisticated and customised devices; and achieve easier compliance with regulations. Our modular MES is specifically designed with the capabilities to meet the needs of the MedTech manufacturing sector, deliver a pathway to Industry 4.0 and future-proof manufacturers in an era of constant change. We are delighted to be working with Nypro and look forward to helping them meet their operational goals.”
