Alliance with Compounding Solutions

We are very excited about this distribution alliance with Compounding Solutions,” said Basker Lalgudi, business development manager of Evonik Corporation’s High Performance Polymers Business Line. “Compounding Solutions brings over 20 years of polymer expertise, strategic relationships with global OEMs and knowledge of material selection. They also offer specialty and custom compounds tailored to meet the needs of validation engineers. This will greatly help the medical industry as a whole with resin supplies in smaller 5-10 kg quantities for new projects to determine the best product-fit, as well as dedicated support from early-stage projects to full scale commercialization phase,” he added.

Evonik has shown commitment to continued innovation in the medical sector with the investments in our Medical Center of Excellence in Lafayette, Ind., where customers can take advantage of process development support using the latest technology in compounding, injection molding, extrusion and sophisticated lab test equipment, as well as the recent opening of our Medical Device Competency Center in Birmingham, Ala., focusing on additive manufacturing, cardiovascular technologies, biodegradable polymers and orthopedic applications,” said Kenneth Ross, medical group manager for Evonik’s High Performance Polymers.

The addition of Compounding Solutions was a strategic decision, filling the need for specialty medical compounding, custom blends and distribution, to further strengthen the area of innovation our customers and the medical industry expect from a leading medical polymer and materials company like Evonik.

Compounding Solutions is very excited to work with Evonik who is equally dedicated and focused on bringing superior quality, lifesaving materials to the medical industry. Together we can combine our materials, technologies and services to better serve all medical customers,” said Scott Neal, owner & general manager of Compounding Solutions. “Our strategic expansion in both logistical warehousing and compounding capabilities since early 2017 will greatly benefit the market as a whole and our distribution alliance.”
