(Photo: Cretex Companies) “We’ve had a strong presence in the medical device industry for many years, with each of our medical companies serving its own market niche,” commented Lynn Schuler, President and CEO. “But most people don’t know that these companies are part of a larger group, Cretex Companies with a portfolio of complimentary manufacturing capabilities. Under the umbrella name of Cretex Medical, we showcase the breadth of our services for medical contract manufacturing,” Schuler added. “However, it’s important to know that this change will not impact the way we operate. Responsiveness and personalized customer service for which all our companies are known will remain our focus.” In the near future, Cretex Medical will roll out its new brand identity with a new website and additional marketing collateral.
