The leading fastener supplier to the MedTech industry
Posted by Paul Medeiros Last updated on Feburary 3, 2023 3:30:00 PM
With its headquarters located in the heart of Silicon Valley, it’s no surprise that Olander supplies fasteners and parts to some of the most innovative manufacturers in the world. This is especially true for the medical technology, or MedTech, industry.
In just the last two years, Olander has delivered over 35 million parts to 200 MedTech manufacturers. These parts are integral to the end products which serve to improve people’s health. Olander supplies these customers in multiple ways: with established account purchases, via ecommerce, and through over a dozen vendor-managed inventory services, also called VMI.
Our fasteners and other parts are found in a wide range of innovative MedTech applications across medical dental and cosmetic categories. Some examples include robotic and laser surgical systems, skin treatment and rejuvenation devices, 3D imaging, prosthetics, and medical tools.
Olander is a preferred supplier to many of these companies because of its rigorous compliance and certification standards and processes. Last year, Olander received ISO 9001:2015 certification for its Sunnyvale headquarters, joining the Woodinville, Washington location, where it was previously attained. This level of quality standard gives MedTech customers peace of mind that they are working with a verified, quality distributor. Rather than having to audit Olander as a new supplier, MedTech customers can partner confidently with us due to our ISO 9001:2015 certification. Additionally, we have dedicated compliance and QA resources to ensure our fasteners and parts meet the exact standards and certifications which may be required for medical end-use.
Olander also deploys a dedicated VMI team which provides delivery of parts to ensure a continuous inventory supply chain to our MedTech customers.
