WHK BioSystems, LLC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of TSE Industries, Inc. of Clearwater, Florida. TSE was formed by Walt and Helen Klingel back in 1962. WHK's name is an homage to them. (Photos Left).
In June of 1993, TSE’s owners purchased Consolidated Polymer Technologies, Inc. (“CPT”), manufacturing its C-Flex® biopharmaceutical grade tubing.* They installed and operated a clean room and became intimately familiar with the labyrinth of governmental regulations in this demanding area of manufacture.
While operating as CPT, we developed the C-Flex® tubing line* into one of the most recognized and respected brands in the single-use biopharmaceutical tubing industry until we sold CPT and the C-Flex® brand* in 2007.
WHK is owned and operated by the Klingel Family. Robert R. Klingel, Jr. serves as its President. WHK is ISO 13485 Certified and is FDA Registered as a Medical Device Manufacturer. WHK headquarters is located in a 12,000 square foot facility in Clearwater, Florida, boasting a state-of-the-art, expandable 2,400 SF Class 7 Clean Room.
Several WHK staff members served in similar capacities at CPT prior to and after its sale and are now at WHK, including its President, Robert R. Klingel, Jr.; Quality Manager, Sandy McIntosh; Operations Manager, Mike Phelan; and Director of Sales and Marketing, Jerry Stadt. Put their decades of experience to work for you!
