This week is Manufacturing Week, which is when people all over our country celebrate the workers who manufacture the goods that are required to keep our daily lives going.
Because of that, we thought we’d take a moment to reflect on why the medical device manufacturing industry is such an amazing industry to be part of. Our team broke down why we love our jobs, and why we think you should consider joining our industry, too.
The Importance of STEM
Careers within STEM fields continue to create valuable outlets for technological advancements. Maybe that’s why they’re such a great fit for creative or inquisitive minds. If you’ve ever wanted to know how a machine works, or said, “It would make more sense if they did this instead,” then you’re the type of person we’re talking about.
STEM fields propel advances that can benefit our day-to-day lives. If you work in the medical device manufacturing industry, you aren’t just running numbers. You’re creating tangible devices that can shape lives in intangible ways. That sort of potential is incredibly inspiring to the people on our team.
A Promising Future
The medical industry has traditionally been a fast-growing sector. In fact, the medical device manufacturing industry alone is expected to reach $41 billion in revenue in 2019 alone. That means that a job in medical device manufacturing can turn into a career in no time.
At MediSurge, we make sure that all of our team members feel empowered to uphold quality standards for our devices. Why? Because we work better when we all know we’re part of a team. It’s also because we know that today’s interns and youth will be the professionals of tomorrow. It’s important for us to empower them and help them create the innovations that they’re passionate about.
The Chance to Give Back
The medical device manufacturing industry is, at its core, about giving back to patients. These devices are made to shape and change lives in ways that go beyond imagination. When you work with a medical device, you know that you’re actually manufacturing an improvement in someone’s quality of life.
Now more than ever, people are searching for jobs that feel like they make a difference. Our industry is dedicated to doing just that, and our team members all feel the weight of their impact.
As one of our product assemblers, Brooke, puts it, “[MediSurge gets] orders for 800 heart pads, and some of them are pediatric. That means 800 babies need open heart surgery, and it’s really rewarding to be part of a team that makes that happen inadvertently.”
