BioPlast Manufacturing, a maker of plastic components for medical research, diagnostics and biotech settings in Bristol, Pennsylvania, recently disclosed that it has acquired leading petri dish manufacturer Kord-Valmark, a U.S. company with many nationwide branches.
The decision is designed to support BioPlast’s strategy of offering clients the best plastics products available for laboratory use, with prototypes designed and tested by scientists.
Petri dish products will continue to be released under the original Kord-Valmark name. The manufacturing process is expected to transfer to BioPlast Manufacturing's Bristol-based injection molding facility around mid-2016.
Bioplast prides itself on innovation in manufacturing with the mission of striving to improve its new line of petri consumables. The company stated that it plans to increase efficiency, reduce costs and improve order lead times in the near future.
BioPlast, which offers bulk pricing and customizable orders, belongs to the Genesis Biotechnology Group, a consortium of vertically integrated corporate entities.
