From Design to Finished Product

Have a unique challenge? Put KEP to the test! We’ve solved a broad range of customer challenges – including many product solutions that stand the test of time.

A large medical device customer of ours was left with several challenges after buying the assets of a urinary drainage bag business that went bankrupt. The customer had all the equipment, including all the pieces-parts, but didn’t know how to manufacture the product. We knew KEP could find a solution!

Our customer shipped all the equipment to us and we got to work creating a finished urinary drainage bag product. In the process, our team designed a prototype that eliminated a hazardous material used by their old supplier and we developed a water-based odor barrier coating to further improve the product. Additionally, we designed a new machine which allowed us to strip the narrow-necked urinary drainage bags from the form for greater efficiency.

After sourcing all the parts and reverse engineering the process to make it successful, we began to manufacture bags that met our customer’s exacting specifications. This product has since become one of the medical device products we’ve consistently manufactured since 2001!
