At Armedica Manufacturing, we are committed to our customers and dedicated to producing exceptional products.
When we started Armedica in 1998, we were determined to build durable and dependable treatment tables for the healthcare professional. With over 40 years of manufacturing experience at the helm of our company, the difference between acceptable products and exceptional products was clear. Our commitment was to build exceptional products and support these products for as long as they were in use. Since that time, our catalog has expanded but our commitment to building exceptional products has remained the same. Every Armedica product is designed, manufactured and backed with the same commitment to quality and customer satisfaction.
Another commitment that we made was to keep all manufacturing here in the USA. Many other companies have moved their manufacturing to other countries so they can reduce costs and improve their profit margins. We concluded, for a number of reasons, that it was more important to keep all our operations here in the USA. We believe it is important that we keep manufacturing jobs here in the USA. We also feel a responsibility to current and future employees of Armedica. For those reasons we decided to give up the extra profit that manufacturers outside of the USA might provide. But not only does this decision benefit the US economy, this policy also helps us to better support you. This means that when you purchase Armedica products, you can count on Armedica to help you keep your equipment functioning for as long as you own it. The very first table manufactured by Armedica is still being used regularly to treat patients!. Armedica employees, who have hands-on product knowledge, solve problems and provide quick service response. Since they work here at the manufacturing facility, they have easy access to valuable resources to help troubleshoot and solve problems. We also stock replacement parts in our warehouse, here in Greenwood, Arkansas so that they are normally available to ship when needed.
By keeping all facets of design, manufacturing and service within one operation, Armedica can control and fine-tune each step of the manufacturing process. This means that we are able to assure the quality of our products as we build them and provide a better value for you. And, we do not depend on an overseas operation that we canít directly supervise. Nothing ships from our facility that has not met our quality standards at every level.
As a USA medical device manufacturer, we must meet the regulatory requirements established by the FDA. Inspectors from the FDA examine our manufacturing facility to verify that we are designing and building safe and reliable products. Armedica is also a certified ISO 13485 Medical Device Manufacturer which means we set and adhere to more stringent manufacturing standards than required by law, formally assuring our customers that we build to a higher quality standard. The ISO inspector visits our plant regularly to not only inspect, but to advise us on methods to improve our processes. ISO certification is not a required certification that we must maintain but a certification that we choose to maintain as formal evidence of our commitment to design, build, and distribute the highest quality product to the industry (at the lowest cost possible).
In summary, when you purchase any Armedica product, you will be purchasing a well designed product, manufactured by skilled and conscientious employees, in a facility located right here in the United States of America .
