May 2008—Integrated Service Solutions, Inc. announced today that May 21, 2008 marks its 10th year anniversary.
LANSDALE, PENNSYLVANIA – Since May, 1998 the Company has evolved from employing a handful of technicians and offering a limited scope of services to the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device industries into a thriving business that employs nearly 50 full-time personnel and delivers single source solutions to the life sciences sector including; preventive and corrective maintenance, qualifications, certifications, training and custom project work all designed to ensure full compliance with FDA rules.
Today, the Company holds ISO 9001:2008 registration by Underwriter’s Laboratories (UL) and ISO/IEC 17025 A2LA accreditation all in support of more than 250 FDA-regulated customers. To guarantee that drug making companies as well as start up biotechnology businesses are in compliance with strict government rules, Integrated Service Solutions, Inc. developed a robust infrastructure. In addition to full-time employment for trained field service specialists, engineers and chemists, the Company also has experienced quality assurance, customer service, finance, operations and business development teams.
“What began 10 years ago in a small office in my home, has today grown to a 20,000 sq. ft. contemporary facility that provides equipment support services to more than 250 life science companies,” said Joseph Uricchio, Founder and President of Integrated Service Solutions, Inc.
“Integrated Service Solutions was founded on the principle of delivering a fast speed of response and technical expertise to the life sciences community with a vast portfolio of services that is constantly expanding to meet customer demands. What makes this company successful and the reason why customers want to do business with us, is that with one phone call or email, they can get all of their equipment serviced—everything from pipette calibrations all the way up to providing preventive maintenance on bioreactors. So, instead of a company having to call multiple original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to service their broad range of equipment, with us they have a single source solution,” added Uricchio.
“Our continued growth and having reached this important milestone expresses the success we have achieved by providing excellent service and a broad service portfolio to our customers,” says Uricchio. In addition, moving into our new facility last spring helps to support our future growth potential and expanded service capabilities along with the capability to conduct training for our employees as well as our customers.”
