Seabrook’s Managing Director Sean O’Sullivan has written an insightful guest article on the benefits of paperless manufacturing for medical device manufacturers for MedTech Intelligence.

In the piece, Sean provides a detailed overview of five key benefits for those who make the switch, including enhanced productivity and a reduction in costs.

With constantly changing regulations and growing device complexity, medical device manufacturers need systems such as MES to ensure quality and compliance. Companies that introduce paperless manufacturing have fewer non-conformance issues, increased efficiency and more consistent product quality, allowing them to focus on innovation and improving the end-user experience.

 Pictured at the Siemens Channel Partner Conference in Phoenix, Arizona, for the official signing of the US channel partnership contract are Seabrook Technology Group’s Managing Director Sean O’Sullivan, and Siemens PLM Software Vice President of the Americas Channel, Craig Radomski.

Seabrook Technology Group is delighted to announce a significant US channel partnership deal with Siemens PLM Software. The partnership enables Seabrook to offer Siemens’ PLM products to new and existing clients in the US, with particular regard to the medical device manufacturing and biotech sectors.

It follows Seabrook’s 2015 channel partnership agreement in Ireland and the UK. Seabrook expects that the partnership will lead to the creation of four new high-level jobs – three in technology and one in sales. Seabrook has been in operation for 27 years, and in the past four years has tripled its workforce and opened offices in California, Indiana and the UK.

Commenting on the news, Seabrook Technology Group Managing Director and founder Sean O’Sullivan said: “We are delighted to announce this very significant partnership with Siemens PLM Software. To date, our client base in the US has grown by 80% in the last 4 years, and, with the advent of Industry 4.0 and the increased need for smart manufacturing, it is an incredibly exciting time for the industry.

“We are pleased to be leading the roll-out of this pioneering technology, which is expected to be especially beneficial to pharmaceutical and medical device industries.”

Given the growing consumer demand for wearable medical devices and for greater transparency in product production, PLM should have an immediate and positive effect on the product end-user experience. The PLM industry is predicted to be worth US$50.7 billion by 2017 (CIMdata).

“We are pleased that Seabrook has joined the Siemens Solution Partner Program as a Software & Technology Partner, “said Craig Radomski, VP Americas Channel, Siemens PLM Software.

“Seabrook provides our customers complimentary solutions that add value to their PLM software investment.”

Seabrook was recently appointed the main distributor of Siemens PLM Software for the entire Irish manufacturing sector. For the past ten years, the company has been a Channel Partner for Camstar MES.

Seabrook’s commitment to manufacturing innovation underpins their presence at this year’s GTMA Manufacturing Solutions Conference in association with the Limerick Institute of Technology, which takes place on May 27th.

Seabrook will be exhibiting at the event and hosting multiple demonstrations of their cutting-edge technologies, including Teamcenter PLM, Camstar MES and Polarion ALM throughout the day.
