Over the last couple of years, the medical industry has seen a roller coaster of challenges. The pandemic caused a sudden spike in demand for personal protective devices, respirators for hospitals, and barriers for social distancing practices. Since then, the industry has been faced with procurement challenges as lead times and supply chains have been disrupted due to a lack of raw materials and staffing shortages. It is imperative that medical device manufacturers adapt to these obstacles since doctors and patients still need access to these vital products. Fortunately, VELCRO® Brand Medical solutions can help fill the gaps in supply chains with medical device contract manufacturing.
