Implant Sciences Corporation, a high technology supplier of systems and sensors for homeland security and defense markets, announced today the start of a new ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 training program. This project supports the Company's expanded world class manufacturing operations.
The training program is funded by a Workforce Training Fund grant through the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, executive office of Labor and Workforce Development. The grant program is administered by the Commonwealth Corporation.
"One of the major drivers of our recent move into our new 58,000 square foot facility was to have the room to grow our manufacturing capability to meet anticipated demand. This will require training many new employees in the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 practices demanded in our industry," commented Brenda Baron, Implant Sciences' Vice President of Manufacturing.
"We use contract manufacturing for the QS-H150, but build the QS-B220 product in our facility," added Glenn D. Bolduc, President and CEO of Implant Sciences. "Orders continue to come for our QS-B220 product, and we currently have shipments scheduled into next quarter. We are pleased to receive the state grant, which helps train our employees, while we increase U.S. manufacturing jobs."
