Solar Atmospheres (Hermitage, Penn.) announced that it has received MedAccred Heat Treating accreditation. The company became the eighth plant internationally and fifth plant nationally to receive the certification.
According to Performance Review Institute, MedAccred is an industry managed supply chain oversight program that focuses on patient safety. It ensures that requirements are met and helps identify how the requirements apply to critical processes used when making medical devices.
“It seems only natural that the medical device industry develops its own accreditation program, like Nadcap, to protect and reduce risk to patient safety,” Michael Johnson, sales manager of Solar Atmospheres of Western Pennsylvania, said. “Being accredited by this oversite program not only sharpens our quality system even further, it also places Solar Atmospheres on a very short list of heat treaters capable of passing the arduous audit criteria.
