Manufacturing Excellence
Pall’s microporous materials and filtration devices are manufactured under precise, highly controlled conditions. Our global manufacturing operations employ Lean Manufacturing and Six-Sigma principles, and internationally recognized quality systems, to produce products of exceptional quality and value. Pall’s OEM device manufacturing facilities utilize the most advanced sealing technologies, vision systems and robotics platforms to ensure optimum operational flexibility, fast response times and lot-to-lot consistency.

Regulatory Compliance
All Pall Life Sciences facilities maintain certification to the ISO9001 Quality Management System (QMS) Standard. The medical device manufacturing facilities are FDA registered establishments qualified to manufacture and distribute medical devices and comply with FDA Quality System Regulation, 21 CFR Part 820. Additionally, these facilities maintain QMS certification to ISO 13485 and the Canadian Medical Device Conformity Assessment System (CMDCAS) and have the authorization to CE Mark finished medical devices as appropriate.

Supply-Chain Initiatives
Our commitment to total customer satisfaction does not end with an on-time delivery of a quality product. We partner with our customers to implement continuous supply programs designed to reduce inventory costs and increase the efficiency of the supply chain. Pall’s consignment inventory and Kanban programs together with our global manufacturing and service networks are value-added resources that can significantly reduce your total cost of ownership.

Pall is committed to continual improvement to meet the unique quality demands of customers worldwide.

  • For the past 10 years, Pall has received praise for producing the cleanest and most reliable IV filters on the Japanese market.
  • Five years ago, Pall Ann Arbor initiated an internal Kanban program with our suppliers. It was so successful at reducing our inventory costs that we went on to launch successful Kanban programs for many of our clients. Kanban and consignment inventory programs can reduce your carrying costs while minimizing lot inventory sizes. Our ability to electronically interface with you keeps you at the forefront of supply chain management.
