PAMA IN EVOLUTION
PAMA Manufacturing and Sterilization
Since 2012, we are specialized in manufacturing medical devices and ethylene oxide (EtO) sterilization.
More specifically, we manufacture single-use custom medical kits (kitting) and accessories for other companies, with a private label service and we have our own PAMA brand.
We make kits for all types of medical procedures, and they are also adapted to professional health workers’ needs. Our kits are assembled and sterilized at our plant in Mirabel, in a class 7 clean room.
Our team of engineers have developed a new process for EtO sterilization. We are proud to say that our EtO sterilization system is eco-efficient, cost effective, safe and compliant.
PAMA Manufacturing and Sterilization offers innovative sterilization and medical devices that meet regulatory requirements and customer needs.
Ethics and Professionalism;
Social and ecological commitment.
We are part of the Ethylene Oxide Sterilization Association (EOSA), which is a non-profit organization whose members are medical device manufacturers, sterilization consultants, laboratories, contract sterilizers and equipment manufacturers. To having a common interest in promoting the use of ethylene oxide.
We are also part of the Medtech Canada. Medtech Canada is the national association representing Canada's innovative medical technology industry.
Representing approximately 100 medtech companies (ranging from Canadian-owned to multinationals), Medtech Canada works closely with the federal and provincial-territorial governments, health professionals, patients and other stakeholders to deliver a patient-centred, safe, accessible, innovative and sustainable, universal healthcare system supported by the use of medical technology.
Founded in June 2012, the PAMA Manufacturing company already sees a great future ahead of it. Created to meet a need and a social responsibility, the company has provided, from the first year, the equipment necessary for several surgical procedures in Quebec.
In March 2016, the arrival of two new partners will allow the realization and execution of the company's projects. During this year, Mr. Luc Clouâtre, General Manager, and Mr. Sylvain Robitaille, main investor, will inject more than $ 13 million into the company.
In April 2016, construction of the new building will begin in Mirabel and in September of the same year, the PAMA team will move to its new place, where the first sterilization system will soon be installed.
PAMA sterilization system will obtain a first contract for 5 million swabs with the authorities of the Public Health Agency of Canada. It is also in 2020 that PAMA will obtain their pharmaceutical product establishment licenses (LEPP).
In this year when the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) concerns us all, the company has become aware of making medical equipment for us and for us.
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.
During this year, the company invested in the training of its team, which allowed it to establish an efficient quality management system that meets the requirements of the industry.
During this year, PAMA's engineered team will start work on a new ethylene oxide sterilization system. The latter is a key element in the ecological shift of the company.
In 2021, it is with great success that PAMA passes the unique Medical Device Single Audit Program (MDSAP) and as a result they obtain their ISO 13485 and ISO 11135 certifications for their sterilization system.
The beginning of many and big changes for the company.
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. They will make all the changes necessary to make this ecological shift.
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.
Also, they engineer team is still working on their ethylene oxide sterilization process that is going to be eco-efficient.
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.
PAMA is still in full development and there is no shortage of projects!
The team continues to work on automating the business and looking for more solutions to promote its green aspect.
For the future, the company plans to expand its operations to the international market.
