In 2013, Pama focused on solidifying its corporate structure and practices.

Now it has set up an efficient Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) structure and a personalized training system for its activities.

The year 2014 is the beginning of many and big changes for the company.
To date, his vision has evolved and the whole team unites to achieve his new goals. The company would exceed industry standards and become THE benchmark!

PAMA was now looking for a new location for its factory that would be able to meet its many projects, including the installation of a sterilization system.

As of this day, the company will define itself as a green company. It will make all the changes necessary to make this ecological shift.

2017

During this year, PAMA will install its specialized sterilizer for the medical field and an ethylene oxide absorber-neutralizer (scrubber). The latter is a key element in the ecological shift of the company.

These are showers that capture gases, clean them and produce ethylene glycol which releases 99.95% pure air into the atmosphere. It is cleaner than the air outside!

2019

In addition to being a year of research and development, 2019 is marked by the start of the automation of the company.

 

Now PAMA has created, with its Quebec engineering team, an automated platform called HMI (Human Machine Software). The HMI allows parametric operation of the sterilization system with ease of use for the operator.

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

On the other hand, the company has developed a sterilization system that reduces sterilization time and immediate release of products, compared to 8 days of waiting for the usual procedures. In addition, this new procedure reduces the exposure time of ETO and reduces the amount used by 50%. This process is much less polluting and PAMA is proud to be the only company to operate this way in Canada.

 

PAMA has also developed its own trays which are 100% recyclable if they are not soiled. These trays make a big difference in terms of ecology, as millions of trays are thrown in the trash every year.

 

Finally, PAMA now offers these products. This is possible with the collaboration of international manufacturers

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

Reducing our environmental footprint

In 2014, we officially made a green shift. Each year, we develop and apply solutions that allow us to favorably reduce our ecological footprint.

So far we have implemented:

  • A building with energy recovery and built with sustainable materials.

  • A 99.95% efficient ethylene oxide absorption system, rather than a catalytic burner that uses hydrocarbon combustion.

  • 100% recyclable medical trays.
