On May 6, 2006, CoorsTek officially introduced C5 Medical Werks Inc., an entirely new and distinct subsidiary focused on manufacturing advanced ceramic implantable components. This new subsidiary serves implantable device manufacturers with biocompatible technical ceramic components.

C5 Medical Werks began as an entity in October 2005 and has since worked to ensure all aspects of their operation are optimized for the special requirements of implant manufacturers. CoorsTek said that after substantial investments in staff, facility, equipment, and quality systems, C5 Medical Werks is ready for business and, in fact, currently serves several customers. Its clean manufacturing environment reportedly houses the latest multi-axis CNC machining, turning, and finishing equipment, dry and isostatic presses, extruders, ceramic injection molders, and inspection equipment. C5 Medical Werks recently received certification to ISO-13485 by registrar BSI.

"We've made a substantial investment to ensure our operations compete on a global level," said C5 Medical Werks President Brad Coors. Drawing from CoorsTek's nearly 100 years of experience in technical ceramics, C5 Medical Werks believes it is well suited to meet an emerging demand for long-term wear solutions in implantable components.
