Touch Bionics announced the opening of a new production facility in Newburgh, N.Y., which will be the primary location for the production of livingskin, the company’s range of silicone prostheses.
Located at 610 Broadway in Newburgh, the 4,000 square feet facility creates an environment that enhances manufacturing flow while providing increased production flexibility, according to a press release. The new center will also more than double the size of the company’s overall workspace.
“As global demand for our livingskin prostheses has been increasing, we needed to ensure that our production capacity is able to scale to meet that demand,” Ian Stevens, chief executive officer of Touch Bionics, stated in the release. “This new facility will increase our production capacity significantly, while also ensuring that we retain our existing team of livingskin experts in Newburgh.”
