Cretex to Build 245,000-Square-Foot Medical Device Plant in Brooklyn Park
29 Mar 2021
Elk River-based Cretex Cos. late last week unveiled plans to build a 245,000-square-foot medical device manufacturing facility in Brooklyn Park.
In a news release, the company said the new facility will be dedicated to “medical device contract manufacturing,” which means Cretex will use the plant to build parts for other medical device makers. CEO Jeff Wollerman said the facility will bring the company’s “capabilities together under one roof.”
Cretex has reached an agreement to buy land at the intersection of highways 610 and 169, which is already home to a number of manufacturing plants, including a Tesla engineering center and Takeda Pharmaceutical Co.’s biologics facility. Cretex officials said the Brooklyn Park location is within a “close radius” to its other locations in Anoka. The plan is to consolidate the company’s Anoka operations at the new facility.
