Supply chain certifications are becoming more critical for OEMs to ensure their suppliers are adhering to good manufacturing practices to ensure quality and regulatory compliance. Pyramid Plastics, a part of the Industrial Molds Group, recently received its ISO 13485 certificate of compliance to meet the quality management practices required by medical device OEMs.

Tim Peterson, vice president of Industrial Molds Group of which Pyramid Plastics is a part, explains that achieving ISO 13485 Certification has helped the company establish a structure for production and quality control standards that makes Pyramid a better company. “We are seeing the medical device market grow and the demands for suppliers increase,” Peterson says. “We currently have some jobs that are medical but none that require ISO 13485, however we are getting more requests to quote medical work so this certification will prepare us. Having our ISO 13485 Certification will put us a step ahead for OEMs looking to take on suppliers for medical products and make us more qualified to obtain this work.”

Pyramid recently passed its recertification for ISO 9001:2008.  Currently Pyramid operates a White Room area with 11 injection molding presses, ranging from 20-230 tons, each equipped with various types of automation.

Pyramid Plastics currently has 26 injection molding presses total that range from 20-1,000 tons to accommodate customers’ programs involving parts of all sizes. That total includes four new all-electric presses acquired over the past 18 months as the company has upgraded equipment. Secondary operations including automated assembly and testing, sonic welding, heat staking, pad printing, hot stamping, bench assembly, machining and other services as required by customers.
