Company Tour

Contamac is the world’s largest independent manufacturer of contact (CL) and intraocular (IOL) lens materials, and a leading innovator in the development of specialist polymers and biocompatible materials for medical applications. We don’t make contact lenses – our clients do, from our materials. Our 35,000sq ft (3,250m2) headquarters in Saffron Walden, England – just outside the university city of Cambridge – features an ISO7 (Class 10,000) clean room and state-of-the-art manufacturing, research and laboratory facilities. Designed on the basis of lean manufacturing principles and over 30 years of experience, they allow us to produce 18 million units per annum and to collaborate with the wider scientific community to create new biocompatible materials and applications.
