A Swiss company is looking for a manufacturing partner with confirmed expertise in precision thermoforming of polymers like PP or PP/EVOH/PP. The partner should also have design capacity and possibly access to integrated packaging and sterilization facilities. Flexibility in delivery of medium and small amounts of products is also mandatory. Joint development followed by manufacturing agreement will be signed.

The manufacturing partner should be able to make reservoir parts with the following characteristics:
- Thermoforming of pure PP or alloys with minimal internal stress, temperature resistance.
- Good shape and dimensional stability up to 125°C, for devices to be used in laboratory, typically for in-vitro diagnostic. 
- Shape stability, meaning that the reservoirs can have a slight dimensional shrinkage, which has to be homothetic.
- A metallocene grade could be useful to improve process ability.

The manufacturing partner should have:
- engineering capacity to design 
- integrated packaging and sterilization (ionization or ethylene oxide) facilities
- flexibility in delivery of small and medium series of product (between 10 000 and 40 000 reservoirs/series)
- very competitive pricing.
