A medical-grade dental rinse manufacturer with groundbreaking antimicrobial technology in the dental, medical, consumer, agricultural, and pet healthcare industries (the customer) faced a challenge when sales grew drastically, and distribution expanded nationally through a partnership with national retailers and medical distributors.
The customer's impressive growth presented a unique challenge: the product’s success quickly outpaced its self-manufacturing capabilities, and additional resources and capacity were needed to meet increasing demand. They recognized the need to find a reliable contract manufacturing partner to help scale their operations.
The customer turned to the Scapa Healthcare Technology Center in Dallas, TX, due to its experience in medical-grade contract manufacturing and because of recommendations from other satisfied healthcare manufacturers. Scapa Healthcare provided complete manufacturing services and analytical testing expertise under Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMP) requirements.
