WALDWICK, N.J., April 16, 2018 — Carlo W. Colesanti, President and CEO, announced today the launch of NextPhase Medical Devices LLC (, an FDA registered and certified ISO 13485 medical device contract manufacturing company working with specialized Class I, II, and III medical devices. NextPhase was formed through the acquisition and integration of Nexcore Technology, LLC and Phase 2 Medical Manufacturing, Inc., and is a portfolio company of Kidd & Company, LLC (KCO), a private investment firm.

NextPhase is a leading low- to medium-volume outsource partner based in North America for complex electromechanical capital equipment and single-use instruments and disposable medical devices. The newly formed company now brings a unique full-service offering to both start-ups and OEMs in the medical device manufacturing industry.

Each company was brought together because they possessed specialty medical device processes, technologies, and proprietary know-how. The launch of this new company will allow NextPhase to become a one-stop shop for both electronic manufacturing services (EMS) and single-use disposable medical devices with a greatly expanded solutions capability for its customers.

“NextPhase will continue to further its position as a leading contract manufacturer of both EMS and single-use disposables. We will also strive to put into everyday practice the careful attention to our customer’s needs, which includes the highest quality products, a LEAN-focused manufacturing culture, and the superb service that all of our customers deserve,” said Colesanti.

Robert A. Olsen, NextPhase SVP, Sales & Marketing, stated, “At NextPhase we are extremely customer focused and offer exceptional quality, responsiveness, and the passion to exceed our customer’s expectations. We also possess the critical capability to optimize medical device outsourcing costs in the design, manufacture, and service of both single-use disposable devices and capital equipment from a single partner.”
