Johnson Matthey Inc Reviews

Best for Markerbands

R & D / Engineering, Medical Device

Speed 3 / Price 4 / Quality 5

I have mainly used JM to supply Pt/Ir makerbands used in catheter manufacture. They have a substantial quantity of bands in stock, and can make just about anything that you need. They used to be quite free with the samples, but have tightened that practice up in recent years as the price of PT has risen.

JM can also supply nitinol tubing and can peform shape setting operations (via heat treatment).

Strengths: supplier of precious metal marker bands and nitinol tubing

Needs to improve: Ordering process can be cumbersome

Supplier of drawn wire

R & D / Engineering, Medical Device

Speed 5 / Price 4 / Quality 5

I order various drawn wire from J Matthey. They have provided quality wire that meets our tight tolerances (+/- 0.0001"). They usually have our items on the shelf and ship quickly. Sizes that are not in stock have a long lead time so plan accordingly. Good customer service explains everything up front before you order so there are no surprises. Highly recommended.

Strengths: Drawn wire, decent turnaround, good customer service

Needs to improve: Long lead times for non-stocked items

Johnson Matthey

R & D / Engineering, Medical Device

Speed 4 / Price 5 / Quality 5


Strengths: Johnson Matthey has extensive capabilities in processing of precious metals. What capabilities they don't have, they can find through their extensive network of contract manufacturers. Their local sales rep is extremely attentive and insightful.

Needs to improve: We send them a significant amount of work for both production and prototyping. This does occasionally impact delivery times. However JM is very proactive in procuring new machinery when needed to anticipate our demand to minimize delays.

Johnson Matthey Review

Manufacturing, Medical Device

Speed 5 / Price 5 / Quality 5

Johnson Mathey is our main provider for marker bands. We didn't have any issue with the Marker band that we order even with the tight tolerance too. They always makes the parts per drawing specification.

Strengths: Supplier for precious metals, alloys, Nitinol

Needs to improve: None standard size too long time to delivery or fabricate

Precious Metals

R & D / Engineering, Medical Device

Speed 2 / Price 3 / Quality 5

Always go to them for platinum components. Pretty much the only ones that specialize in small precious metal parts for medical industry. They missed their promised delivery dates several times for my orders.

Strengths: They are experts in providing small precious metal parts.

Needs to improve: They're turnaround times are not always accurate.

Decent choice for machining but overpriced

Finance/Accounting, Medical Device

Speed 4 / Price 2 / Quality 3

My start up uses Johnson Matthey for prototyping since they provide the largest selection of precious metal marker bands and chemical preps. They are a good supplier for stock sizes since the turnaround is decently fast. Their staff is knowledgeable and offer good insight. However their pricing is comparable to more high end vendors and it is not warranted for the average level of work product they produce. Overall we were decently satisfied.

Strengths: Knowledgeable staff, quick turnaround

Needs to improve: High price for average work

Precious Metal Division - Medical Device Components

CEO/Owner, Medical Device

Speed 4 / Price 4 / Quality 4

I've worked with the Johnson Matthey Precious Medal Division, specifically the Medical Group. They have routinely provided quality Platinum and Gold marker bands and Fine Diameter Platinum/Tungsten Wire. Their prices are competitive and quality good. I have also used their precious metal recycling to reclaim the value of the precious metal scrap generated during our manufacturing process. They also have a generous sample policy, sampling up to 10 marker bands per request which is great for prototyping.

Strengths: Quality Medical Device Components, Customer Service, Generous Sample Plan

Needs to improve: None

The most reliable precious metal vendor

R & D / Engineering, Medical Device

Speed 3 / Price 3 / Quality 3

Marker band supplier

Manufacturing, Medical Device

Speed 3 / Price 3 / Quality 4

I've used Johnson Matthey many times for prototyping since they normally carry the largest selection of precious metal marker bands. They are a good supplier for stock sizes since the turnaround is decent and pricing is on par with competitors. Their lead times could be improved for custom orders though, especially for the first few initial runs. Best to just order a lot

Strengths: Precious metal tubing, marker bands, quick turnaround for off the shelf parts

Needs to improve: Long lead time for custom marker bands

Johnson Matthey is one of the industry standard precious metal manufacturers. We have used JM's precious metal fine wire components. Their quality is excellent and customer service is superior.

Their prices were slightly more expensive, but the reliability in their quality is worth it.

A good start for raw material needs

Manufacturing, Medical Device

Speed 4 / Price 5 / Quality 4

We used Johnson Matthey for platinum marker bands, however, moved to another source because they weren't great with customization. At the time they provided a good selection of catalog sizes, but couldn't spec them down to size, so we did the customization in-house until we found another supplier. This a good place to start for marker bands and other raw materials.

Strengths: Quick

Needs to improve: Customization is limited
