At Sterling Medical Devices, we know even small disruptions in the supply chain for the parts needed to produce your device can lead to big consequences for your business and patients.
Obsolescence is a challenge many manufacturing companies face, but it is especially problematic in highly regulated fields like the medical device industry. It can happen for any number of reasons including delayed or discontinued production of a part, updated regulation requirements, or increased security measures. No matter the reason, not having what you need to build your product means broken commitments, damaged relationships, frustrated customers, and lost revenue.
Sometimes the best, and maybe only, option is to redesign your medical device.
