Medical Insert Molding

Surgical and medical insert molding and precision metal stamping have been part of Weiss-Aug Group’s history for over 40 years. In 2016 we launched the Weiss-Aug Group Surgical Products division with a new 40,000-square-foot home in nearby Fairfield, NJ to deliver a truly unique set of product development and manufacturing capabilities designed for medical device and surgical instrument manufacturing.

About Weiss-Aug Surgical Products

With two facilities in the US and an extension of services at Weiss-Aug Group Mexico, our Surgical Products division produces millions of medical devices and device sub-assemblies. Our capabilities include medical insert molding, laser manufacturing, automated assembly, and extensive product development support.
