Ron Jellison appointed Head of KMC Systems

MERRIMACK, N.H., July 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ron Jellison was appointed Vice President and General Manager of KMC Systems, a leading medical equipment manufacturer and a division of Elbit Systems of America, LLC effective July 1, 2013.  Jellison has been with KMC Systems for nine years as the Director of Business Development, securing new medical device contract manufacturing customers and the growing existing customer relationships.


"Jellison's business development experience and industry knowledge made him the natural choice to succeed outgoing General Manager Pat McNallen," commented Raanan Horowitz, President and CEO of Elbit Systems of America. "Pat has provided KMC with superb leadership over the past 25 years, and I have full confidence Ron will build on this strong foundation and lead KMC to additional growth and success.  Pat will now focus on assisting Elbit Systems of America with new business growth areas and will also be available to provide Ron and his team support as needed."

"I see so many great opportunities for KMC in this rapidly changing market," said Jellison. "We will continue to leverage our 30 years of experience and focus our attention in the areas of rapid product development, technology development and expansion into adjacent markets. With KMC Systems continually providing innovative solutions that protect and save lives, it's an exciting time to be in the medical device industry. We are known for our depth of experience and services for the contract development and manufacturing of IVD instrumentation."

Jellison points out that KMC Systems has been achieving high customer satisfaction and year-after-year revenue growth, through such strategies as rapid product development, forward-thinking investments, off-the-shelf technologies and increasing disposable design capabilities.

Off-the-shelf medical device technologies can be integrated into medical programs with precision and speed. "These technologies ultimately benefit our customers with reduced development times and costs, and lower manufacturing costs," stated Jellison. "In other areas such as optics, microfluidics and sensors, we will look for companies that want to partner with KMC so that we can continue to provide innovation to our customers."

KMC has also implemented discreet event simulation allowing systems engineers to explore various concept architectures' ability to meet product requirements. "This provides our OEM customers with a high degree of confidence in how system variables affect product performance," commented Jellison. "This ultimately saves time and costs in medical device development and minimizes design risks early on in the process."

Jellison further stated: "The emergence of point-of-care (POC) instrumentation is driving the need for more focus on the relationship of instrumentation to the disposable or consumable. We are seeing more complex cartridge-based systems that are moving instrument functionalities to a single-test, single-result disposable."
