Vertically integrated to solve problems quickly
Norwood Medical’s philosophy of vertical integration enables us to in-source most processes, leading to maximum quality, shorter lead times and reduced production costs. This philosophy allows Norwood Medical to maintain tight control over engineering, production and manufacturing throughout the project life cycle. It also gives us a significant advantage over other contract medical device manufacturers: it affords us with the flexibility to adapt, solve problems quickly and respond to customer demands.
Quality processes assure excellence
Norwood Medical applies a top-to-bottom approach to quality process excellence through the Six Sigma methodology. Norwood Medical employs a certified Black Belt trainer who provides an organizational approach to quality and increased dedication to providing immediate corrective action in areas that need improvement. Many senior managers, quality engineers, and plant managers have achieved Black Belt or Green Belt certification, and many other employees have completed White Belt training to help instill quality practices in daily operations. In addition, custom training programs are developed to provide specific information on the medical industry supply chain.
