On the Friday evening before Labor Day weekend, Sterling was contacted by a client that had a very urgent need. Due to a requirement to launch and produce 50 million units per month of a new novel Covid-19 test, the client needed a team of validation engineers to be on site when the Labor Day weekend was over. The client is a medical device and healthcare company. They rank in the top 5 on the list of largest diagnostic companies. This client recently received emergency FDA approval to produce rapid Covid-19 tests.
Sterling worked through the holiday weekend and met onsite on Sunday to estimate the manpower needs to complete this project. Within four days of the request, Sterling brought in a team manager and 7 Sterling validation resources. The project manager led the Sterling team and 6 of the client’s validation resources to validate over 500 pieces of equipment in four weeks’ time to meet the needs of the massive manufacturing push at their facility.
