Are you experiencing headaches from trying to get the parts you need for your medical device?
Is the manufacturer discontinuing production of a particular part you need?
Has the cost of a necessary part gone up so much it is affecting your profit?
Supply chain interruptions can wreak havoc on your ability to deliver a product on time and budget. Your medical device is a carefully crafted piece of equipment, with each piece serving a specially designed purpose. If even one part is missing or altered, the whole device could cease to function or be ineligible for sale on the market.
Sterling can help.
