Our American-made healthcare products boost efficiencies and comfort patients

Medical & Biotechnology Industry

Breakthroughs in medicine, dentistry and biotechnology have led to unimagined advancements in healthcare. They’ve also increased expectations. Healthcare manufacturers and suppliers are expected to improve efficiencies and minimize costs, all while keeping patients safe and comfortable.

Choosing Vollrath Manufacturing Services (VMS) as your OEM partner means you will exceed these expectations.

In addition to a wide variety of standard stainless steel and poly-carbonate medical components, we can custom manufacture components for lab, surgery and patient care needs. We understand the tight tolerances and regulations healthcare components require.

We leverage all of our manufacturing capabilities to supply some of the top medical suppliers in the country.

At VMS, we form partnerships that deliver solutions for the healthcare industry. We solve problems too complex for the typical contract manufacturer while reducing lead times, contributing to improved patient care and minimizing overall healthcare costs.


We can provide engineering design consulting and a variety of manufacturing capabilities to help you with your new product development.

Custom Healthcare Solutions

If you’re considering a custom medical, dental or biotechnology solution, our team will meet with you, help determine your needs, and guide you through our process.

VMS has all the prototype design and validation your project will need. If you don’t have a design or drawing, we can help you create one. If you already have a design, our engineers will review it and identify cost-savings design opportunities and engineer out any potential production issues.

Once the design is finalized, we have the ability to use 3D printers to create prototypes and models to ensure you can see the final product prior to production.

Our experienced tooling engineers can develop custom tooling to your specifications or modify existing stock components to create your part.

Our robust sourcing capabilities give you access to our large network of material suppliers. Our volumes and connections ensure that your material costs start low and stay low.

When it’s time for production, our breadth of capabilities and capacity give us the flexibility to manufacture quality components and products quickly.
