MARLBOROUGH – Web Industries Inc., a precision converter and contract manufacturing organization (CMO), has been named Manufacturer of the Year for the Eighth Middlesex District by the Massachusetts Legislative Manufacturing Caucus.
A framed certificate commemorating the award was presented to Web Industries President & CEO Mark Pihl by Representative Carolyn Dykema at the company’s Holliston, plant in conjunction with the Massachusetts State Legislative Manufacturing Caucus’s “Reimagined” 5th Annual Manufacturing Awards Ceremony.
The term “reimagined” indicates that this year’s awards ceremony was held virtually. Fittingly, the award was presented during October, Massachusetts’ official Manufacturing Month.
According to Pihl, Web Industries and the Eighth Middlesex District have a mutually beneficial relationship.
“We have enjoyed the support of Representative Dykema and local government,” Pihl says, “and that has reinforced our efforts to ramp up production of lateral flow immunoassay (LFI) COVID-19 rapid diagnostic tests and hire hundreds of employees at our Holliston LFI Center of Excellence. Ultimately, this contributes to the district’s, the Commonwealth’s and the nation’s economic vitality while helping us to combat the COVID-19 pandemic and return the country safely back to work.”
Web Industries’ LFI Center of Excellence is a one-stop manufacturing solution that offers a reliable path from small-scale test development to high-volume commercialization of new LFI devices. Purpose-built for automated reel-to-reel medical device production, it features an in-house biochemistry lab, reagent deposition, LFI strip manufacturing, device assembly and packaging.
