Shaping products that shaped the future

J-Pac Medical was established over 40 years ago in Somersworth, New Hampshire as a family business specializing in thermoforming plastics.

This was a time of rapid change in the medical device industry. Healthcare and the devices required to deliver it were rapidly modernizing. J-Pac developed expertise in thermoformed medical components and was among the first companies in the U.S. to form plastics in a cleanroom.

That success spurred J-Pac’s transition from being a single-technology company toward offering a broader suite of end-of-line services including implantable textile forming and medical device final assembly and packaging.

As a result, long-term relationships with some of the industry’s biggest players were formed and the stage was set for J-Pac to develop the turnkey assembly & packaging and sterilization services we are known for today.

New skills, new markets

Change remains a constant in healthcare, and we remain committed to developing new capabilities our customers rely on to keep the competitive edge.

Our entry into the point-of-care diagnostics market in 2006 provides a great example. With an advanced understanding of thermoforming and deep materials expertise, J-Pac developed reliable, repeatable manufacturing of microfluidic reagent storage blisters to enable point-of-care molecular diagnostic tests.

Today, we partner with dozens of developers to manufacture and package tens of millions of diagnostic reagent blisters each year.

To accommodate our medical device and diagnostics customers’ growth, we’ve added a secondary manufacturing and assembly facility in Costa Rica — a critical move that provides risk-mitigating redundancy and a pathway for cost savings.
