WARSAW, IN, USA AND GOTHENBURG, SWEDEN – OCTOBER, 19th , 2016. Promimic AB, an innovative biomaterials company, and Danco Anodizing today announced the successful completion of the production line for Promimic’s HA nano surface coating for orthopedic and dental implants. The two companies entered a strategic partnership in March 2016 under which Danco became the preferred process partner for Promimic for the USA and China medical implant markets. Danco has also invested in the production line for HAnano Surface at its manufacturing facility in Warsaw, IN, USA.
Promimic’s HA nano Surface represents a new era of implant surfaces, based on bio-mimicking synthetic bone minerals. The unique and proprietary HA nano Surface is only 20 nanometers thin and can be applied to almost any implant material. It has been shown to increase the anchoring strength and integration of medical implants with surrounding bone tissue in over 20 pre-clinical studies. The HA nano Surface is already in clinical use on dental implants in Brazil. Promimic recently raised SEK 23.8 million to establish its own sales operations in the US.
Danco Anodizing has been a leader in the processing of titanium, stainless steel, and aluminum parts for the orthopedic industry since 1992 and works with many of the leading orthopaedic implant companies on the US market.
Ulf Brogren, Promimic CEO, said: “We are excited to finalize the production line with our strategic partner Danco. We firmly believe this will further increase already strong interest in Promimic’s innovative technology from implant companies supplying the US and Chinese markets. The new US production site will facilitate easy access and minimal investments for our customers, giving them flexibility and a faster route to market.”
Dean Zentz, Danco VP Operations, said: “Danco is pleased to be a part of this exciting venture with Promimic and is confident Promimic’s technology and our manufacturing expertise will offer our customers an improved solution for medical implants.”
