Trelleborg Healthcare & Medical announce silicone tubing facility in Malta

Trelleborg, Sweden – Trelleborg Healthcare & Medical announces an investment to expand its European biopharmaceutical manufacturing capabilities in Malta. This follows a multimillion-dollar investment initiated in 2022 to expand biopharma capacities in North America.

The site will initially add over 4,000 square feet of cleanroom space and focus on silicone tubing and braided hose with options to extend capabilities in the future. This is Trelleborg’s second biopharma-focused manufacturing space alongside their BioPharma Center of Excellence in Northborough, Massachusetts in the US.

The Malta site is one of Trelleborg’s largest manufacturing sites in Europe with a history of more than 60 years in advanced elastomeric solutions. The facility is set for completion by the end of 2023 with production starting early 2024.

Trelleborg is known for supplying original equipment manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies with a broad range of products and capabilities for single- and multi-use biopharmaceutical applications. The company’s portfolio ranges from its highly reliable and proven silicone PharmaTube and hose to custom silicone and rubber-moulded parts, O-Rings, seals, bearings, and composite products, all customisable into ready-to-use solutions.
