MedAccred recognizes Solar Atmospheres of Western PA for its commitment to continual improvement in medical device heat treat and brazing quality


February 20, 2018 – Solar Atmospheres of Western PA is pleased to announce that it has received the prestigious MedAccred Heat Treating accreditation.  Becoming only the eighth plant internationally and the fifth plant domestically to receive this certification, it demonstrates Solar’s ongoing commitment to quality by satisfying customer requirements while complying with future medical industry specifications.

Performance Review Institute (PRI) states that MedAccred is an industry managed supply chain oversight program that bolsters patient safety.  It does this through clarification of requirements and better identifying how they apply to critical processes used in the production of medical devices.

“It seems only natural that the medical device industry develops its own accreditation program, like Nadcap, to protect and reduce risk to patient safety,” says Michael Johnson, Sales Manager for Solar Atmospheres of Western Pennsylvania. “Being accredited by this oversite program not only sharpens our quality system even further, it also places Solar Atmospheres on a very short list of heat treaters capable of passing the arduous audit criteria.
