Strouse Completes Establishment Registration with FDA

Strouse, an industry leading adhesive tape converter and custom manufacturer is proud to announce its medical device establishment registration with the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The registration builds on Strouse’s wide range of adhesive tape converting capabilities and allows for deeper penetration into medical device projects and the overall medical and healthcare market

“Our investment in quality has always been a building block for our success,” says Sue Chambers, President and CEO at Strouse. “With our quality management system already registered to ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 13485: 2016, FDA registration was the logical next step.”

The FDA regulates food, drugs, biologics, and medical devices with the main goal of minimizing use-related hazards and risks so that users can use devices and products in a safe and effective manner.

“We’ve long taken pride in being able to solve customer challenges and manufacture products that our competition deemed too difficult or impossible,” says Chambers. “In order to bring these difficult projects to life, we’ve built controllable processes and instilled continuous improvement in everything that we do.”

Completing an establishment registration with FDA is important to medical device manufacturers as it indicates a commitment to compliance with FDA 21 CFR 820. The registration makes their process and path to product launch easier while allowing Strouse to continue expanding offerings for customers.

“We are proud of this achievement that reflects the quality processes that we continually improve to exceed customer expectations,” says Chambers.

In addition to ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 13485:2016 and FDA registrations, Strouse is a certified Woman Owned Small Business (WOSB) and has an ISO 7, Class 10,000 cleanroom with humidity controls. The WOSB provides customers and prospects with additional benefits during the RFP process while an ISO 7 certified cleanroom with humidity controls provides an additional layer of control to the environment during the manufacturing process.
