Last week, MTAC President Joe Sculley visited member company Whelen Engineering. Whelen’s goal is to bring innovative, life-saving products to market more quickly while maintaining strict quality control throughout the process. They have accomplished this through a vertical manufacturing initiative to eliminate or reduce out-sourcing; the use of robotics and state-of-the-art production equipment; and, perhaps most importantly, a motivated workforce of over 1,100 employees. This allows Whelen to meet and adapt to their customer’s changing needs in the shortest amount of time.
Many thanks to Rick Alexander at Whelen Engineering for the warm welcome and detailed tour of the facility in Chester, Conn.
