TPI & RMP: Exclusive Distribution Aggreement

RMP manufactures long-term human implantable UHMWPE

The Life Sciences division of Total Plastics International (TPI), based out of Fort Wayne, IN, announces their completion of an exclusive distribution agreement with Restoration Medical Polymers (RMP), headquartered in Columbia City, IN.

RMP manufactures fabricated forms of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) used in long-term human implantable applications, especially those in the orthopedic industry. Their recently opened state-of-the-art facility features the most comprehensive and advanced equipment of any manufacturing site of its kind. RMP is an ISO 13485:2016-certified company. TPI will be working directly with customers on all product requirements including Type I and II, cross-linked, vitamin E and any specialty requirements of UHMWPE, as well as stocking material and vendor managed inventory.

“RMP is poised to be the innovator of implantable grade UHMWPE,” said Michael Kell, Business Development Manager at Total Plastics International. “Their production facility is second to none, and the personnel they have in place will certainly gain the trust and respect of the orthopedic industry.”
