Quoted from Pinball-is-great:
To meet demand, can't a certified medical equipment company (XYZ) subcontract work to a company such as Stern, provided that XYZ has Stern follow their certified quality work procedures & processes, and Stern employees receive necessary training, with monitored oversight by XYZ to ensure compliance? Seems like that could be done in a matter of weeks if necessary.
The main issue is Stern doesn't really Manufacture much in the building. They are an assembly company. Companies like Biomet, Zimmer, Paragon, etc actually manufacture the parts they sell. All of which is done in close to a sterile environment. Far from what a pinball factory looks like. I spend a Lot of time in the medical Manufacturing facilities and trust me the only thing Stern could produce is the welcome sign on the front door sorry.
