Millstone Medical Outsourcing Completes Move
Millstone Medical Outsourcing has completed the move of its Memphis, Tenn. operations to the city’s suburb Olive Branch. As of Jan. 7, Millstone reports that the company is fully operational in the new state-of-the-art facility after a two-stage move that required validation of equipment and processes and approval from close to 35 customers.
The new facility has 150,000 square feet of operational space—more than three times the size of the previous facility—for mechanical inspection, world-class loaner kit processing, bone and tissue storage, innovative packaging services, and distribution. Millstone is an outsourcing partner to orthopedic companies; the growing company provides advanced inspection, clean room packaging, loaner kit processing, and distribution services to medical and dental device manufacturers worldwide.
According to Millstone, the relocation was prompted by an expanding client base. In addition to significantly increased space, the new facility provides high-speed data lines for the company’s enterprise resource planning system; new equipment, including high speed autoclaves, freezers, backup generators, and racking for storage; and enhanced security systems.
“With professionals from both the Memphis and Fall River locations working round the clock and over weekends, Millstone was able to finish the complicated move without disruption within three days,” said Karl Neuberger, vice president of Memphis operations at Millstone. “The additional operational space allows Millstone to expand programs for existing customers and to bring on new customers. We are tremendously excited about all the possibilities the new facility will deliver for the company and our customers.”
Millstone's headquarters are in Fall River, Mass.
