A lot of us are on the lookout for good news lately so we thought we would share some with you from inside the medical device manufacturing supply chain world.
One of our medical device start-up customers needed to meet a firm delivery deadline provided by their biggest client, a large international medical device company – despite the pandemic. As their product development and low-volume manufacturing partner, Inertia was able to turn around our client’s first set of production parts in just six weeks. Completion and delivery of all 33,000 parts took only 12 weeks, right in the midst of COVID-19 restrictions.
Inertia’s ability to quickly adapt to our new pandemic operating environment enabled us to successfully deliver 130 unique parts, 33,000 total parts, 99 tools from 13 manufacturing partners. On top of that, it was delivered safely, on time, with zero international travel. Some of the most common manufacturing processes we support include:
- urethane casting
- plastic injection molding
- reaction injection molding (RIM)
- electronic PCB assembly
- membrane switch panels
- machining & fabrication
- pad printing
We have been delivering this kind of outstanding customer service for years at Inertia. With some slight changes lately to how we collaborate and communicate, we continue to deliver success despite interruptions to traditional manufacturing supply chains.
We believe collaboration is key not just when bringing new products to market but also for getting through this pandemic too. If you are finding that your manufacturing supply chain has become stuck, please contact one of our supply chain experts.
