Utilizing Small Businesses for Medical Devices
The medical device industry has traditionally relied on foreign sources for the products they need. However, during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s become clear that the healthcare system needs to be utilizing domestic resources, too.
Here’s some of the best reasons to switch from overseas suppliers to domestic, small business medical manufacturers.
Time and Cost Savings
Importing can be costly. Of all the products we manufacture, design, and produce, there is only one single component that we source from outside of the United States. In fact, every other part is created right here in Michigan.
That means that when we work with customers, we don’t have to charge them for import or export fees. We also aren’t waiting on clogged supply chains to ship through ports that may not be open.
Additionally, this means designs can be easily and swiftly altered. If something in a medical device needs to be adjusted for quality or safety, we don’t need to wait on international shipping or foreign parties to do it. In fact, our entire team works in the same building, so our engineers and our decision makers can make changes a reality before most companies can even coordinate a meeting.
Small medical device businesses are excellent at adapting to their surroundings. There are no parent companies to fall back on in times of need, so small business owners are experts at figuring out a way to excel when they need to most.
For example, MediSurge has taken to restoring medical devices that are brought in from China and other countries. Once the device reaches us, we take the time to examine it, alter the design if necessary, and then put it through our extensive quality assurance procedure. Each one is treated as if it’s one of our own products, so we can confidently deliver quality products, no matter what.
We can also offer these medical devices quickly. Our customers can ship directly from us in Michigan, instead of waiting to import. In the end, it means that patients get the medical devices that they need, while the healthcare facilities save money in the process.
