Maria has contributed to substantial changes and improvements in the Largo packaging Operations, from both an equipment and a packaging system standpoint. She implemented a new packaging sealing platform together with new packaging system designs for new and legacy products. This complex effort involved 20+ process validations and more than 20 packaging system qualifications. As a result, she was able to improve quality which led to a reduction in internal and external complaints related to package integrity. She has helped drive and implement a Corporate Packaging strategy to try to harmonize packaging procedures across ConMed sites.
