R&D/Leverage Heightens Investment in Medical and Silicone Mold Manufacturing

LEE'S SUMMIT, Mo., Oct. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- R&D/Leverage's enhanced medical and silicone mold manufacturing capabilities - seamlessly integrated under one roof - continue to expand in anticipation of further industry acceleration, according to David Wescoat, the company's Vice President - Engineering.

The result is a one-stop supplier capability that helps customers create the superior end-products for the world's healthcare and pharma professionals.
