Prestige Ameritech Opens New Facility
Disposable medical and consumer products manufacturer Prestige Ameritech, Richland Hills, Texas,
has opened a new facility in Forth Worth, Texas, for the production of disposable medical products
including facemasks. The new facility offers contract manufacturing through such services as
product design, high-speed rotary manufacturing, laminating, ultrasonic bonding, radio frequency
bonding, heat sealing and pressure-sensitive adhesives.
The companys development team has 30 patents issued and pending for its technologies.
"We are very excited about our new facility and about our business prospects," said Dan Reese, founder and CEO. "We believe that offering increased quality and protection, plus the peace-of-mind that stems from having a secure, US mask supply, satisfies unmet needs in the market."
Ten associates are currently employed at the Fort Worth operation. The company expects to add an additional 20 positions by the end of 2007, and an additional 30 to 50 positions by the end of 2008, according to Mike Bowen, vice president.
