Eden Prairie, MN, United States, 2006/08/31 - Medical device package, product and environmental testing laboratory, DDL Inc, responds to increased business with a new Technical Director at DDL West and a new Project Manager at its corporate headquarters.
DDL, a leading medical device package, product and environmental testing laboratory is expanding both of its facilities with two new hires, Karen Greene and Kelley Newman.
Karen Greene joins California-based DDL West from Seltzer Nutritional Technologies, where she was Director of Package Engineering. In her role as Technical Director, she will focus on increasing DDL West’s package testing business.
Originally from the Spalding Corporation, Kelley Newman is a Package Engineer who will aid the DDL corporate offices in a project management role. Newman specializes in Quality Assurance.
“We are delighted to welcome Karen Greene and Kelley Newman to DDL,” said Patrick Nolan, COO of DDL Inc. “We are confident that Karen will be instrumental in growing our DDL West facility, and Kelley’s expertise in Quality Assurance will help us both maintain and exceed our high standards in medical device package testing.”
Package testing is imperative to maintaining the sterility and efficiency of a packaged medical device. A recent product recall report issued by the FDA revealed that a large portion of medical device recalls were due to defective packaging. DDL is committed to high quality testing that will ensure that a sterile medical device reaches the end user in perfect condition.
“When it comes to medical devices, there is no room for error,” said John Hart, CEO of DDL. “DDL takes its responsibility very seriously and makes sure that packaging is put through an extremely rigorous testing process.”
DDL offers expert package testing, product testing and material testing services including shock testing, vibration testing, tensile testing, leak testing and validation. DDL package testing clients find value through its growing suite of PackServices: PackAdvice, a zero-cost package testing consulting service, and PackReview, a DDL approved certification to demonstrate compliance with ISO 11607 (clause 7). DDL Testing Services maintains full service testing labs in Minnesota and California.
