REDCOM EMS, a business unit of REDCOM Laboratories, has been experiencing exponential growth over the past few years. During this period of growth, REDCOM has been expanding its production capabilities with the addition of new equipment while going after certifications to help expand into new markets, such as aerospace and medical. None of this growth and success is accomplished without a hardworking team in place.
Lauren Iuranich is a Quality Engineer for REDCOM EMS. Within her position, she manages the quality of all products being manufactured on-site in Victor, NY and runs all certification efforts for REDCOM EMS. Most recently, Lauren led the company in obtaining the AS9100D certification and she’s in the process of obtaining ISO 13485:2016. There is a lot of work that goes into getting our site certified, including updating procedures and documents, meeting standards, going through audit processes, as well as physical preparations out on the floor.
Another big part of Lauren’s job is her ongoing efforts to continuously improve upon everyday processes and procedures. She’s passionate about tackling these projects and enjoys looking at a situation or problem and thinking of ways to fix things and make everyday workflow for the team more efficient. One project Lauren is working on currently is an MES, or Manufacturing Execution System, for our manufacturing facility. This would enable REDCOM EMS to go paperless, and every operation on the floor will be set up with a laptop and a scanner. Right now, most quality data is based on returns or captured manually. With the MES in place, traceability will vastly improve, data can be easily collected and retrieved, and quality records can be better tracked.
Lauren grew up in Western New York. She was born and raised in Buffalo and went to college at RIT where she got her Bachelor of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering Technology. Lauren only started working at REDCOM in 2017, but since joining the team she has become a vital asset in paving the way forward to manufacturing growth and success.
