Our company

Who we are

Contamac is the world’s largest manufacturer of contact and intraocular lens materials, and a leading innovator in the development of specialist polymers and biocompatible materials for medical applications. We don’t make contact or intraocular lenses – our customers do, from our materials. 

Our aim is to improve the Vision and wellbeing of millions of people worldwide.

Our 90,000 sq. ft. (8,360m²) 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, office and laboratory facilities – all of which provide the infrastructure and environment to meet and exceed our customers needs and expectations.

Contamac is proud to be a two-time recipient of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise and is accredited to ISO 9001 and ISO 13485. We pride ourselves on being an international company in every sense.

How can we help?  Contact us



At the heart of everything we do is trust in people, and we recognise the vital roles that our customers, end-users, suppliers, and staff play in our success. From the lasting partnerships we build with our customers, our relationships with the industry and end-users, and our talented team members: all have contributed to our success and will continue to inform all that we embark on.


Our mission is to develop and manufacture biocompatible polymer-based materials that make a positive difference to people’s lives; to work with clients, research partners and end-users to create a better future, develop and manufacture biomedical devices, and explore ground-breaking new healthcare applications.
