CHARLTON, MA – (October 12, 2016) –MTD Micro Molding, a long-time leader in micro-injection molding for the medical device industry, is the first micromolding company in the world to achieve MedAccred Certification.
MedAccred, administered by Performance Review Institute (PRI), is an industry managed, consensus-driven approach to ensuring critical manufacturing process quality throughout the medical device supply chain. MedAccred establishes stringent industry consensus audit criteria based on industry standards and specific OEM requirements that ensure quality and compliance of medical devices.
Following the receipt of the certificate, Dennis Tully, president of MTD Micro Molding commented, “I am extremely proud of this achievement. The fact that we are the first micro injection molder to receive MedAccred sets MTD Micro Molding apart from its competitors. As a company we work to our core values of ‘Be the First, Be the Best’ and ‘Ever Forward’ and this accreditation from MedAccred epitomises both those ideals. Through MedAccred we have proved our critical manufacturing processes for micro injection molding including our unrivalled experience in bioabsorbable molding are the best and demonstrated that we are able to embrace change and position ourselves yet again as leaders in our field.”
MTD was the first micromolding company to complete the pilot audit for the Plastics checklist, with overmolding and injection molding jobs being closely examined along with the quality system. MTD also was represented on the Plastics audit checklist task group with MedAccred, working alongside various MedAccred subscribers (major medical device companies) including: Stryker, Philips, BD, Johnson & Johnson, Medtronic, and Boston Scientific Corporation.
Advantages of MedAccred:
