Trelleborg Healthcare & Medical
Bring your Medical Devices to Market Faster.

Trelleborg Healthcare & Medical is one of the world’s leading developers, manufacturers and suppliers of precision seals, bearings, and custom-molded polymer components for demanding medical device, biotech, and pharmaceutical applications. By forming collaborative partnerships, we help design, develop, manufacture, and bring to market innovative engineered solutions to meet the most challenging needs of healthcare and medical device companies.

Trelleborg has expanded its capabilities and offerings to customers with the acquisition of the US-based Minnesota Rubber & Plastics (MRP). Headquartered in Plymouth, Minnesota, MRP is a leading manufacturer of elastomeric and thermoplastic components and a system provider for technically demanding medical device applications. From high-tolerance medical devices, diagnostic components and assemblies to final sterile-packaged devices, we specialize in the most demanding applications using medical-grade elastomers, liquid silicone rubber (LSR) and thermoplastics. Capabilities include materials science and formulation, fully functional product prototyping, and operational excellence and supply chain consolidation.

Trelleborg Healthcare & Medical now comprises 41 manufacturing facilities in the Americas, Europe, and China, 61 Customer Solution Centers, 10 R&D Centers, five Logistics Centers, four ServicePLUS Centers, an Innovation Center, and a Rapid Development Center. We serve healthcare and medical customers globally with capabilities including silicone and thermoplastic molding and overmolding, extrusion, sheeting, dipping, coating, plastic injection molding, multicomponent manufacturing, micro-molding, automation, drug-eluting technologies, engineered coated fabrics, and other technologies.

With our global footprint, we help customers innovate their medical device, biotech, and pharmaceutical applications, including:

  • Biopharmaceutical
  • Cardiovascular
  • Cell Therapy
  • Diabetes
  • Diagnostics
  • Sterile Fluid Connectors
  • Structural Heart
