Foster was founded by polymer engineers, and today more than 20% of our employees have engineering or technical degrees. As a technology leader, our commitment to knowledge continues well after an employee is hired. Every Foster employee receives 40-80 hours of training per year through our in-house continuing education program.
Our technical staff has worked with virtually every polymer and additive/filler on the market, including fluoropolymers, bioresorbables, water soluble, TPE’s, thermoplastics, and more. Our equipment range is capable of processing very small quantities (less than 1 pound) to larger quantities (thousands of pounds), with raw material feeding systems for powders, pellets and liquids.
Technical service engineers are available at both our Connecticut and Nevada locations to service current production materials and development programs for future medical devices. Please consult with your regional sales representative for the appropriate technical service engineer to provide you assistance at any time.
