CooperVision Specialty EyeCare Upgrades and Expands Manufacturing Facilities
CooperVision Specialty EyeCare announced investments in its Sherbrooke, Quebec and Gilbert, Ariz. manufacturing facilities.
The Sherbrooke facility—located southeast of Montreal—mainly produces Blanchard Onefit and Onefit MED scleral contact lenses. Accommodating increased volume demands from the Americas and other global markets, the site will benefit from several upgrades such as expanded advanced lathing technologies and renovated laboratory space.
The Gilbert site—in suburban Phoenix—currently produces Paragon CRT® contact lenses and materials. The group’s ambitious expansion plans will grow the facility to more than 45,000 square feet by 2025, with a refurbished shipping and warehouse center, and a substantially larger specialty lens manufacturing floor.
Additionally, the group is undertaking a refurbishment and production expansion of its Netherlands facility to meet growing demand in Europe and China for its range of lenses.
“Extending our partnerships with the eye care community also insists that we regularly invest in our infrastructure, especially given upward demand,” said Juan Carlos Aragón, President, Specialty Eye Care, CooperVision.
