MDM works with all sizes and levels of organizations and does not require a firm forecast to build product. We have the flexibility and capacity to build quantities as low as clinical builds to as high as mass production.

While we do not have a "minimum order" policy, we do look for feasibility of production.

MDM purchases, receives, inspects and warehouses components for many of their customers. Over the years we have built a very robust and reliable supply chain network that we use to source products.

At MDM we have ample dedicated warehouse space for your finished goods and components. Products can be shipped to you as and when needed, based on your convenience.

If you require we can create custom labels for you.

The lead times are directly associated with the scope of the project and falls into the "Critical Path" objectives. This is another way of saying - lead times depend on many factors such as product complexity, logistics, resource requirements and the likes.

LSO/MDM does not have a manufacturing operation outside the US, with the exception of our partner facility in Tijuana, Mexico. For more information, visit our Offshore Manufacturing website.
