Letter from the President
Jeff Beard, MCA President
With the changing of seasons comes a natural evolution in manufacturing processes and challenges. As we embrace the transition from one season to another, it is an ideal time to reflect on the pivotal role that the Manufacturing Cleaning Association plays in navigating these changes and driving progress in our industry.
Our association has always stood at the forefront of innovation and best practices in manufacturing cleaning, and this commitment remains unwavering. We understand that the manufacturing landscape is ever shifting, presenting new opportunities and complexities. It is our duty, as members of the MCA, to adapt and excel in this dynamic environment.
I’m delighted to share with you details about our upcoming event How Clean is Clean: Medical Devices – which promises to be a milestone in our journey towards excellence. On Thursday, Oct. 19, we will convene at the Heritage Room in Winona Lake, IN, for an event that will take us deep into the intricate world of cleaning within the medical device manufacturing industry.
