The markets we serves: Your medical device solutions partner

Vaupell—A full product life-cycle partner. We’re your global medical device solutions partner for highly engineered Implantables & bioabsorables, Surgical tools & Instruments, Drug delivery, and Orthopedic medical devices & assemblies.


Surgical tools and instruments

As minimally invasive and less invasive surgeries continue to rise, it is important to have tools that are lighter and more ergonomic to prevent surgeon fatigue. These tools must retain the ability of multiple autoclave cycles without degradation of the color, stability, or integrity of the product. Advancements in engineered resins that can withstand autoclaving and some of the harshest cleaning agents provide new opportunities to develop your next surgical tool out of plastic instead of metal. Product experience: biopsy devices, orthopedic devices, women’s health, bezels and housings, and endoscopy.

Drug delivery

Vaupell works with numerous drug and liquid handling companies on a variety of projects. These include components and finished goods that are used in DNA sequencing, liquid handling, and microfluidics. Much of this production is developed as RNA/DNA free in our automated manufacturing environment. Our expertise is unsurpassed working with products requiring tight tolerances and using commodity resins. Product experience: Pipettes / trays, Cuvettes, machining of arrays for liquid handling, Chip carriers for microfluidics, Dry-powdered inhalers, Syringe barrels and plungers, and fluid administration sets and winged infusion sets.

Cleanroom assembly & packaging

Medical cleanroom assembly. We offer precision plastic and metal components with assembly and packaging in a Class 7 cleanroom.


Cleanroom manufacturing

We constantly monitor product quality and have continual cleanroom inspections and requalification by external experts, ensuring the highest possible quality. Our manufacturing takes place in microbiologically controlled Class 7 cleanrooms on cutting-edge, fully automated production lines.



In alignment with parent company Sumitomo Bakelite Co., Ltd., we place a high emphasis on the environment and delivering sustainable solutions.

We solve social issues and achieve sustainable growth and value creation under a structure comprised of our Sustainability Promotion Committee (which is chaired by the President) and its subcommittees based on our business philosophy, which esteems the Sumitomo’s Business Philosophy and sets forth our management principles.

We regularly and comprehensively verify the extent of the progress made by these committees, based on which we continuously revise the contents of our activities and actively improve upon them. In aiming for communication with our stakeholders, we widely announce the results of our activities within and outside the company.
