Genesis Plastics Welding Adds AED Unit

Genesis Plastics Welding Adds AED Unit to Manufacturing Facility

In matters of life and death, single moments matter. Automated external defibrillators (AEDs) are an important lifesaving technology that can increase the chance of survival for those who suffer heart-related emergencies, such as a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). Genesis Plastics Welding is proud to have an AED unit joining its Indianapolis-area advanced manufacturing plant.

What Is a Cardiac Arrest?

A cardiac arrest occurs when the heart unexpectedly stops beating. It strikes people of all ages, even children and teens. When it occurs, the individual collapses, doesn’t respond or breathe normally. They may gasp or shake. A cardiac arrest can lead to death in minutes, if the individual does not get help immediately. Survival depends on bystanders calling 911, starting CPR and using an AED, if available. Read more

Genesis Plastic Welding’s Tom Ryder Talks 2019 Outlook

2019 is looking bright for many industries, including medical device. Industry experts predict overall revenue growth driven by continued innovation and emerging technologies.

As markets evolve and drive opportunity, it should be a banner year for contract manufacturers, as well. Growth for many medical device OEMs is presenting capacity questions – expand or farm out. With ever-narrowing margins and increased competition, strategic outsourcing bridges the gap quickest and most efficiently.

Additionally, industry leaders outside of medical device are setting their sights on acquisition and targeting the purchase of medical-based companies in order to diversify and break into the lucrative market. Contract manufacturing partners with medical device design, development and production expertise will be key in helping these specific manufacturers hit the ground running. Read more

Manufacturing Day | Inspiring the Next Manufacturing Generation

The lights come up, the hour is over, and you’ve learned quite a bit from a “how-to” video tutorial in your Manufacturing 101 class. And while classrooms are integral to the education process, many of us may remember that an actual hands-on learning experience gave us an on-the-job and real-life view of business that we just couldn’t get inside of a classroom.

Manufacturing Day

Friday, October 5 is National Manufacturing Day—a day set aside as a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire a future generation of manufacturers. You might say that at Genesis Plastics Welding we celebrate that day every day. Even though we aren’t in a classroom ourselves every day, we haven’t forgotten how important it is to offer the next generation of innovators and potential medical device workers hands-on internship experiences that expand their learning realm and inspire a future career in the manufacturing industry.

“There are so many unknowns in the world for today’s students considering career path options. Hands-on internships can be very enlightening for most students and such a great experience and added value for the employer as well,” said Genesis Plastics Welding President and CEO Tom Ryder.  Read more
