To scale the production of the SOF® Tourniquet, the TacMed team turned their focus to manufacturing efforts in the United States by leveraging key partnerships with domestic suppliers. This allowed for a consistent supply operation, accelerated sample review, and access to preferred pricing for reliable equipment.
With this new process in place, TacMed Solutions has seen the following improvements and achievements:
* 75 percent reduction in lead times for shipping orders;
* 175,000+ SOF Tourniquets parts manufactured in a 6-week timeframe and;
* 50,000+ SOF Tourniquets delivered by TacMed Solutions™ to Ukrainian war relief.
“When the war in Ukraine started, we weren’t going to let supply chain issues get in our way, said Katie Hembree, Director of Operations for TacMed Solutions. “Having agile, communicative, and transparent manufacturing partner[s] has helped us move quickly to jumpstart production and deliver lifesaving supplies to those on the front lines who need them most.” Will Wenberg, CEO of TacMed Solutions said, “Our goal has always been to provide the highest quality products as quickly as possible to support the abilities of First Responders. These enhancements to our domestic production process have allowed us to dramatically increase the speed in which we can deliver our products to customers.”
