Expansion the Result of New ISO Certification for Medical Device Manufacturing
OTTAWA, Nov. 5, 2014 /CNW/ - L-D Tool & Die has successfully completed the ISO 13485:2003 certification, allowing them to launch an aggressive expansion plan that will benefit the Ottawa economy.
The company plans to leverage the cost savings of manufacturing plastic parts in Canada to improve cost efficiency for medical device production. This will improve the competitiveness of local medical device manufacturing in the global market, increase revenues for L-D Tool & Die by 30%, and create 20 new local jobs.
L-D Tool & Die's Laurie Dickson couldn't be more thrilled by this announcement. "The passion of our team inspires me every day," says Dickson. "I've been making moulds for over thirty years, and have never been more proud of what we're accomplishing. This certification will create growth at the company and high-quality manufacturing jobs in our community."
The company's success is part of a trend playing out on the global stage. Canadian manufacturing was once a stable sector that provided high quality jobs before overseas competitors eroded this stability in the 1980s and 90s. Today, companies like L-D Tool & Die play an important role in bringing skilled manufacturing jobs back to Canada.
Is this good for local business? Resoundingly, yes. Just ask Ottawa-based biotech company DNA Genotek who manufactures devices to collect and stabilize DNA from multiple sample types for human genetics, microbiome and infectious disease applications. "Quality and service are very important to us in selecting a manufacturing partner. We are pleased to say that we have found both with L-D Tool & Die" says Ian Curry, DNA Genotek's President.
L-D Tool & Die is a privately owned manufacturing firm in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Specializing in moulds and custom injection moulding, they offer manufacturing services on a turnkey basis. With 24 years in business and nearly two centuries of experience from the management team, L-D Tool & Die adds significant value for customers.
