C5 Medical Werks acclaimed “2006 Rising Star” by Colorado Bioscience Association

August 24, 2006 — /C5/ — DENVER, CO — C5 Medical Werks, a wholly-owned subsidiary of CoorsTek founded by President Brad Coors in October 2005, has quickly established itself among the top biotech companies in Colorado.

The Colorado BioScience Association (CBSA) honored the new company for making a “significant difference to Colorado’s vibrant bioscience industry in 2006.” The Rising Star award was presented to C5 Medical Werks at the 2006 BioWest Conference, the foremost annual bioscience and trade exposition in the Rocky Mountain Region.

“We are very pleased to be recognized by the 200 member Colorado BioScience Association,” comments Brad Coors, who serves as president of C5 Medical Werks. “We’ve set our sights on success and intend to take a leadership role in producing the highest quality ceramic products for the medical device industry.”

C5 Medical Werks provides advanced ceramic solutions for implantable device manufacturers. The company serves customers with product lines that include ceramic hip replacement implants, ceramic spinal implants, ceramic dental implants and other custom ceramic implantable components.

The C5 Medical Werks’s facility in Grand Junction, Colo., was specifically designed to meet the growing demand for long-term implantable ceramic components. State-of-the-art manufacturing and inspection capabilities such as advanced materials development, forming technologies, firing equipment, precision finishing and precision measuring equipment optimize the company’s ability to innovate and compete globally.

“Our team moved the company forward from a development entity in 2005 to a fully operational company in 2006,” says Andrew Nield, Director of Sales and Marketing at C5 Medical Werks. “In existence for less than one year at the time, we were the youngest company to receive ISO 13485 certification recorded by our registrar, the British Standards Institution (BSI). We are focused on success in our three primary target markets, hip, spine and dental implants, and intend to expand quickly into custom applications. Our commitment to superior processes and products will enable the company to partner with the leading implantable medical device providers in the world.”

Already in full-scale production, C5 Medical Werks forecasts steady growth in revenue and has announced plans to significantly expand their workforce over the next 12 months.
