Cardiac Mechanical Heart Valve

Cardiac Mechanical Heart Valve

When a small medical device company acquired a critical technology, they recognized the need to upgrade their facility and ramp up their production. The existing team was excellent, but dwindling supply and limited production abilities left them in a tough spot. They called Waddell Group.

Our project leader created a plan to bring the new technology up to production within nine months. This plan involved hiring 80+ people, as well as purchasing and bringing in several pieces of equipment to improve manufacturing volume and quality. For example, an electron microscope with automated testing capability was brought on line for inspection, which allowed for a more efficient and accurate testing process.

When the production ramp-up launched, the company had only two weeks of inventory remaining – a testament to their sales team. With the successful completion of their project, production volume capacity increased tenfold. Additionally, and importantly, it was delivered on-time and on-budget.
