We are proud to announce that BeoCare, Inc. has finalized the integration of Shelby Elastics LLC and that going forward both companies will operate as one company under the BeoCare brand name, from our newly expanded manufacturing site in Hudson, NC.
BeoCare acquired all the assets of Shelby Elastics in November 2014. Initially both companies continued to operate as standalone entities, operating from their respective manufacturing plants in Hudson, NC and Shelby, NC. In 2016 it was decided to move the Shelby plant to Hudson in order to optimize efficiencies and offer clients a seamless one-stop, ISO 13485-certified contract manufacturing solution for medical elastics.
Dismantling and moving the entire Shelby knitting mill and moving it to Hudson, was an immense challenge and we could not have done it without all the hard work from both the Hudson staff and the Shelby staff. The employees of the Shelby Elastics plant were offered financial incentives to move to nearby Hudson, while at the same time experienced knitters in Hudson were retrained to master both the circular knitting for which BeoCare is famed and the flatbed elastic knitting which has been Shelby Elastics’ specialty for over 35 years.
With the acquisition of Shelby Elastics, BeoCare now offers a complete line of knitted and woven elastics for use in medical applications. If you are a medical device company, looking for a U.S. partner to develop a custom elastic for a new medical or orthopedic device, or if you need a complete onshore manufacturing solution, the team at Beocare can offer the most cost-efficient and reliable solution on the market today.
