“As a manufacturer of a portfolio of FDA approved medical devices, we made a decision 2 years ago to re-design one of our product lines and move the production from China to the United States. Making that decision meant we were immediately faced with a host of sourcing and supply chain issues that needed to be tackled before we could introduce our Made-in-USA product. Our initial search for high quality materials for our product led us to several companies who recommended we talk to MMI Textiles. From the initial meeting, Amy and her team from MMI demonstrated their tremendous breadth of knowledge and expertise in the Textile industry, their attention to detail and their sincere willingness to help us with our endeavor. For months, they efficiently and expeditiously helped us identify, sample and choose materials that would give our device the high-quality look at the affordable cost-basis that we desired. They were true consultants for us – trying to identify the materials that would work the best for our application, whether they were stock products or custom manufactured based on our needs. Their efforts to find solutions to our problems and challenges were tireless. They also opened their extensive rolodex of companies in the industry and ultimately helped us find companies that soon after became our primary domestic manufacturers. Having now been in production for over a year on these new products, I can say that our account management team at MMI is consistently responsive to our needs, fast to react to unforeseen challenges and availability issues, accurate with delivery times and invoicing, and proactive in helping us identify alternative solutions to manage cost. Every one of their courteous, professional and personable office staff is a joy to work with, and is always willing to go the extra mile to help out, even if they haven’t been directly involved in the project. As we recently have looked to expand our product line, we turned to MMI first to help strategize on new materials and new methods of production. They rose to the challenge, familiarizing themselves with materials that were new to them, and ultimately played an integral role in helping us design an innovative new product line that we will be proud to launch in the coming months. One of the rewards of running a small business is surrounding yourself with supplier partners who share your business ideals, can help you grow and be successful, and who are fun to work with. I can honestly and unequivocally say that MMI has been a true partner for us in this challenging process. And who knew we’d find them in our backyard. We look forward to working with them for many years to come. ”
