NextPhase Medical Devices

Current Investment

In January 2015, KCO made a control investment in the initial platform, Nexcore Technology, in partnership with the Company’s founder and CEO. In July 2017, Nexcore Technology acquired Phase 2 Medical Device Manufacturing. From this acquisition, NextPhase Medical Devices was launched.


As people live longer and seek a higher quality of life, innovative medical devices are continuing to play a bigger role in outcome-based healthcare.  Medical device OEMs are looking to shorten time to market while reducing costs, and will increasingly outsource non-core manufacturing to third-party contractors with design/manufacturing expertise.


Founded in 1999 and headquartered in Waldwick, NJ, NextPhase is a contract manufacturer of electro-mechanical capital equipment to the medical device industry.  NextPhase’s capabilities cover the complete spectrum of the medical device manufacturing product life cycle, from conceptual design and engineering through to manufacturing and after-market service and support.
