Medical Product Development and Production in Asia

At Porticos Asia we specialize in medical product development and production.  Customers include Masimo, Medicomp and Spencer Health Solutions. Together with our partner Porticos US

At Porticos Asia we specialize in medical product development and production.  Customers include Masimo, Medicomp and Spencer Health Solutions. Together with our partner Porticos US we can provide a turnkey solution – from design to delivery.

As Porticos Asia continues to grow, we have found that we are working with an increasing number of companies in the medical field, from start-ups to multi-national corporations. In many cases having engaged our partner Porticos US for mechanical and electrical engineering and firmware development customers then work with us to take their product through design for manufacturing and industrialization to production. There are many benefits with such a one-stop solution including a seamless transition to production and shorter lead times. For one of our customers, Spencer Health Solutions, we were able to take the engineering design of Porticos US to production in 12 weeks.

We have worked on a wide range of medical products including medicine dispensers, medical data aggregators, heart monitoring systems and blood glucose monitors. Whilst the product type can vary the development and production processes and quality requirements are similar.

Porticos Asia’s Hong Kong location is ideal for managing production in China or for other countries in SE Asia including Indonesia and Singapore. For more contained volumes we are able to carry out final assembly and testing ourselves, in our Hong Kong facility. Otherwise, for larger volumes we have a network of trusted suppliers built up over decades. All suppliers are certified ISO 9001 and some ISO 13485 and with our team of quality control engineers we are able, with frequent factory visits, to manage our customers’ projects for on time delivery to high quality standards.

Drop us a line if you would like to find out more about our services and how we might be able to help you with your medical product development and production needs.

Porticos Asia Opens New Facility

We have decades of experience supporting customers with their product development and manufacturing needs for a wide range of products including...

With the opening of a new facility we have greatly enhanced the services we are able to provide our customers. Our new 4,000 sq.ft. headquarters in Hong Kong combines offices for management and engineering with a factory for final assembly and testing and a warehouse.

Hong Kong was an industrial centre in the sixties after which manufacturing migrated to Mainland China in search of lower costs. Now that Hong Kong is at cost parity with Mainland China for the production of higher value-added products it makes perfect sense to open a factory here.

It’s not only about cost. Whilst we continue to source parts from SE Asia, Hong Kong has so many advantages over other countries in the region for final assembly and testing:

  • Parts can be sourced easily and quickly thanks to Hong Kong’s central location and superb logistics infrastructure
  • With our own facility we can maintain tight control over production quality
  • IP protection is much stronger in Hong Kong than in Mainland China or other SE Asian countries.

If you’d like to find out more, we’d be happy to have a chat – we’ve got decades of experience making all kinds of products and might be able to help you. You can send us an email at info@porticos-asia.com or fill in the inquiry form here.
