DDL Expands the Product & Material Testing Division

DDL, leader in medical device package, product and material testing, is taking strides to expand their Product and Material Testing Division by promoting Mark Francis to division manager.

Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) March 12, 2010 -- DDL, leader in medical device package, product and material testing, is taking strides to expand their Product and Material Testing Division by promoting Mark Francis to division manager.

DDL has been helping medical device manufacturers get to market for almost 20 years. Their primary division has been package testing and in 2004 recruited MTS veteran, Alan Gale, as its materials and product testing engineer. Now, in an effort to further expand the Product & Material Division, DDL has promoted Mark Francis, from project manager to Product and Materials Division manager.

DDL recognizes that the material and product testing market is rapidly growing, particularly in the medical device industry. The Product & Materials Division tests medical devices and materials (including packaging materials) to ASTM, ISO, IEC and other established test standards. The division also designs custom tests for a variety of products both within and outside of the medical industry. Advances in materials, increased regulation and increased outsourcing have provided the division with multiple opportunities.
“Moving Mark to manager of the Product & Materials Division was a strategic move on our part to further expand our product and material testing department,” Pat Nolan, DDL President, said. “We are eager to take advantage of his tenured experience and product and material testing expertise.”

Mr. Francis has a bachelor’s degree in Ceramic Engineering from Alfred University and a master’s degree in business from the University of Illinois. In addition to owning his own consulting company, Mark worked at a local exercise equipment company as new product development manger and engineering director.

“Our charge is to grow in the regulated medical industry. We currently offer over sixty-five standard tests and are constantly adding more. We have a strong staff that is completely capable of handling our anticipated growth. We are looking to not only expand in our core areas but add more electronics testing to satisfy the demand that we see in the medical device industry. 2010 holds a lot of promise for DDL,” Francis said.
