Officials at Trumpf Medical Systems Inc., part of the global Trumpf Group and a leader in LED Surgical Lights, ceiling-mounted equipment management systems and surgical tables, announce its Charleston, SC, manufacturing facility has received ISO 13485 Certification. ISO 13485 is an international standard that requires a manufacturer to demonstrate comprehensive quality management systems suitable for manufacturing medical devices.
According to Andy Reding, president and CEO, Trumpf Medical Systems Inc., ISO certification offers customers an added level of confidence that they will consistently receive the quality products and service that he feels the market has come to expect from Trumpf.
“To be truly competitive in today’s market, a company must have a quality system governing all phases of its business operations,” says Reding. “ISO certification independently confirms that such systems are in place here at Trumpf. It also speaks to our commitment to keep the bar high, as we strive for continuous improvement in everything we do.”
Lindsey Ronnenberg, Trumpf’s Manager, Quality and Regulatory Affairs, echoes that sentiment, saying the decision to pursue the optional third-party accredited certification is consistent with the Trumpf Group’s expectation of its manufacturing facilities and its overall commitment to quality. The Trumpf Group operates 60 subsidiaries globally and Trumpf Medical Systems is represented in more than 80 countries.
