Bilt-Rite Orthopedics and Safety, Croydon, Pennsylvania, a manufacturer of orthopedic, sports medicine, and bracing products, as well as occupational and ergonomics supports and safety gear, has acquired the medical products division of Holyoke, Massachusetts-based Mastex Industries, which makes hot and cold therapy packs, heating pads, wheelchair cushions, mattress overlays, and other comfort pillow products. The expanded medical-products company has moved into a larger manufacturing facility in Croydon.
According to the company, the new Bilt-Rite/Mastex manufacturing operation has almost tripled in size from its previous location, filling more than 26,000 sq. ft. in a newly built facility. The new plant also includes a larger warehouse facility.
“Our new, expanded plant is amazing,” said Will Palmer, Bilt-Rite’s operations manager. “Despite the slowing economy, American manufacturing is alive and well at Bilt-Rite/Mastex. Our efficient operations give our proudly ‘Made in U.SA.’ products a competitive edge in the marketplace…. Our new plant affords us the opportunity to offer an even more complete and high-quality line of cushions and mattress overlays..”
