From May 24th to the 25th, Medical Component Specialists was thrilled to attend and sponsor the MedDevice Forum, an MPO Summit Event. Taking place in picturesque Costa Rica, the event was modeled after other MPO Summits designed to address critical issues for all stakeholders within the medical device industry focused on medical device manufacturing outsourcing and innovations within the space. 

At the forefront of everyone’s minds included issues such as supply chains and resiliency, regulatory changes that impact supplier quality, and strategic sourcing of suppliers. With over 60 years of experience, MCS has been providing solutions as a trusted supplier for medical OEMs across the world with master grinding capabilities to produce components such as custom mandrels. 

At MCS, we pride ourselves on our quality and our responsiveness to customer needs. Our Quick Ship Program enables us to provide our customers with quick shipping times for catheter-forming mandrels and raw materials. With over 400 different products in stock for next-day shipping, this ensures our customers get the products they need, when they need them, which can help overcome supply chain challenges. Additionally, as customers continue to evaluate where their suppliers are located, our Providence, RI location handles our custom mandrel grinding, while our Bellingham, MA location oversees the manufacture of orthopedic pins, staples, and other orthopedic medical device components. This helps to reduce the supply chain risk of importing from other regions of the world. 

However, if you’re looking for a custom mandrel, our custom grinding capabilities allow us to produce products to your exact specifications. We’ve recently expanded our production capabilities with automated grinding tools, such as additional high-speed Swiss CNC equipment to enhance our precision grinding capabilities and flexible finishing options that enable quick, nimble, and responsive production of high-quality parts at an exceptional value. 

You can also feel confident with our ISO 13485:2016 certification. As an ISO-certified manufacturer, we ensure lot traceability and complete certification for every product. And, all materials used to make MCS products meet ASTM-F899 (304SS), ASTM F-138 (316LVM), ASTM-F1537 (Cobalt-Chrome), and ASTM-F2063 (Nitinol) standards. This is just one of the many reasons medical OEMs have been turning to MCS for over 60 years. 

If you were unable to attend the MPO Summit, please get in touch with our experienced team if you’d like to learn more about our services and capabilities. We look forward to assisting you as you create strategies to maintain your supply chain and ensure vendor quality.
