MEDRAD Honors Classic Industries
Latrobe, PA May 30, 2011 — Classic Industries received two honors during the MEDRAD, Inc. (a division of Bayer Medical) annual Supplier Day Event: the “Technology” award for 2010 and two “Significant Contributor” awards in recognition of outstanding performance on Project Cooper.
For the second year in a row, Classic received the “Technology” award for demonstrating leadership in product and process technologies that enable MEDRAD design innovation, assure product quality and reduce product costs. These core competency additions include true two-shot molding, pulse cooling implementation, Priamus system integration and additional use of servo drive motors.
Additionally, Classic Industries was honored with the “Significant Contributor” award for both the Wimmerton and Eastpointe facilities. Project Cooper was kicked off as a result of an immediate emergency interruption in MEDRAD’s existing supply chain. To address MEDRAD’s needs, Classic formed a specialized team to qualify and validate a large number of transfer tools in a short period of time. This team was successful in performing their tasks in a manner that resulted in no customer or product interruptions.
