Norwood Medical’s legacy of expertise in complex machining dates back as far as the 1920s, when it first opened its doors for business as a machine tool shop. Serving a thriving manufacturing sector through a good part of the twentieth century, Norwood Medical began its journey into medical device manufacturing in the early 1970s. As a contract medical device manufacturer, Norwood Medical first helped produce complex surgical devices for companies that were pioneers in the field.
Norwood Medical’s success supporting medical suppliers and its increasing focus on manufacturing medical devices spurred the company to dedicate all of its efforts to the medical industry in the late 1990s. The company quickly gained a reputation for tackling complex parts and projects that other contract medical manufacturers were unable to produce. Supporting customers in orthopaedic and minimally invasive surgery markets, Norwood Medical expanded its operations and continued to invest in new technology and equipment. By bringing in the industry’s leading professionals, manufacturers and quality practitioners, Norwood Medical has created an environment and culture where innovation and ambition are the driving forces.
Norwood Medical’s laser focus on the medical device industry was intentional, not an afterthought. We welcome the challenges that come with producing the most complex products. Throughout our history, our willingness to embrace complexity has produced a culture of innovation.
