Finding the right contract medical device manufacturing partner for your medical device production is the key to getting the most successful results. The benefits to be had include increased efficiency, productivity and profitability. But, how do you know where to find the right contract medical device manufacturer for your needs? What qualities should you look for?
As a UK medical device manufacturing company with many years of medical device experience behind us, we know and understand what it takes to make the process as effective and successful as possible.
In this blog we look at the 8 ways a contract medical device manufacturer can increase your efficiency, productivity and profitability.
1. A Specialist, Fully Trained Workforce
It’s vital that all members of the team handling the production of your medical device are fully competent in their field. This means having received the most up-to-date levels of training, ensuring work is carried out to the highest standards and in full compliance with all of the latest and applicable regulations.
2. Production Facilities Equipped With The Latest Equipment
In addition to a well-trained workforce, having the correct and most up-to-date equipment and facilities will allow a contract medical device manufacturing specialist to provide you with the highest levels of service. Our customers, for example, benefit from state-of-the-art facilities, which house a range of processes including clean room injection moulding, clean room assembly, HF welding, bonding and packing operations.
Meridian Medical regularly invests in the latest technology to improve our production capabilities and provide our customers with the most efficient, productive and profitable results. We have also recently carried out major refurbishments and opened more new premises to allow us to expand our cleanroom and moulding capacity, and provide additional space for the increased stock holding of components and finished goods.
3. Expertise In Manufacturing Medical Devices
Any contract medical device manufacturer should be willing to work closely with you to ensure the highest levels of satisfaction. However, because we specialise solely in the manufacture of medical devices this has enabled us to become experts in our field.
Having the very best team of specialist, fully trained professionals who come with many years of medical device experience and knowledge is what enables us to deliver our promises to customers who regularly comment on our speed of response, interest in their project and understanding of what they want to achieve.
4. Reliable And Robust Supply Chain For Parts And Components
A contract medical manufacturing partner should have a robust supply chain network in place that will ensure the cost-effective supply of the parts, components and processes required. Instead of having to spend time sourcing parts and materials from multiple suppliers, you should be able to benefit from the reliability of a high-quality, established supply chain framework that is dedicated to medical industry production.
5. Speedier Design Phase With In-House Design For Manufacturability Services
Your contract medical devices manufacturer should have advanced design capability, with in-house expertise and state-of-the-art technology to carry out the complete design and prototyping process quickly and cost effectively. When time is tight for the production of your medical device, having this level of in-house capability can be invaluable. At Meridian Medical, our medical device manufacturing customers are able to benefit from such facilities as Solidworks and Solidworks plastics mould flow software.
6. Storage Space And Stock Keeping Facilities
It may be that you do not require delivery of your medical products as soon as they are produced. For this reason a good contract medical device manufacturer should have the storage space available to store your products for an agreed length of time.
In addition, they should have enough space available in which to keep the parts used in the production of your medical device. This will help reduce any potential delays in production as and when you place another order.
7. Support Navigating Regulatory Requirements
When launching a new medical device or updating the specification to an existing product, it’s vital that the appropriate regulations are adhered to before releasing the device for human use or general sale. Your contract medical device manufacturer should be experienced and knowledgeable enough to be able to assist you in ensuring this is the case.
8. Faster Time To Market
By offering all of the above services, your contract medical device manufacturer will be able to reduce the time that it takes for your medical device to come onto the market, while supplying you with a product which has been manufactured using the highest levels of expertise.
For this reason, you can be sure of a successful launch of your medical device or product, because increasing efficiency and productivity can only help to increase profitability, too.
