OUR STORY, OUR PEOPLE

A New Partner - A Need Fulfilled
RMP was founded in 2015 out of the expressed need in the orthopedic industry for a dedicated, implant-grade UHMWPE supplier with technical expertise, competitive pricing, and exceptional lead times. Our team’s experience in the industry prior to starting RMP informed our path and laid the foundational principles that this company would be built upon. We strive to offer true partnership to our customers by understanding their needs and coming alongside them to provide the best solution in legacy products and new product development. Our experience in direct compression molding (DCM) of individual parts is opening new possibilities for our customers’ products. We achieve these things by adhering to our company’s core values and employing a highly technical, dedicated group of people who are the reason we continue to grow as a company in this industry.
