Neil Shillingford, Pexco CEO, remarks, "Pexco has invested considerably in its medical division the last few years, notably with our acquisitions of the Spectrum Plastics Group and Precision Extrusion as well as the expansion of our facility in Baja California, Mexico. We have built some nice commercial momentum recently within the sector to be sure, but this event certainly marks a step-change in our position and proposition going forward. With Mauricio’s experience and leadership, we intend to advance our presence considerably in the medical plastics and medical device outsourcing industries.”
For over ten years across a number of leadership capacities and ultimately as President of its medical division, Mr. Arellano directed the Greatbatch organization, now part of Integer Holdings Corporation, one of the largest medical device outsourcing manufacturers in the world. Most recently, he was Executive Vice President, Global Operations, Integer Holdings Corporation, where he was responsible for 28 manufacturing plants worldwide leading the manufacturing and supply chain functions.
Last year, Pexco announced the acquisition of Precision Extrusion, Inc., the Glens Falls, NY-based advanced medical tubing extruder.

In 2014, Pexco expanded its Mexicali, Mexico operation and clean room capacity to accommodate medical extrusion growth in Baja California. In total, Pexco operates five medical manufacturing facilities across the United States and Mexico and is uniquely positioned with scalable advanced extrusion, injection molding, micromolding, and bioresorbable technologies to serve the needs of the top medical device companies and customers.
