Minneapolis, MN, December 6, 2006 – http://www.testedandproven.com – DDL Inc, a leading medical device package, product and material testing laboratory, has been named the #42 fastest growing company in the Twin Cities in a recent Growth 50 honor roll released by the Minneapolis St. Paul Business Journal.DDL, which has experienced an average annual revenue increase of 25% since 2003, has moved up 8 places from its #50 position in the 2005 Growth 50. DDL attributes much of its growth to its ability to read the needs of its customers.“Many package engineers and manufacturers are looking for re-assurance that their packaging will not fail its validation testing,” said Patrick Nolan, COO of DDL Inc. “DDL offers comprehensive pre-testing consultation via our PackAdvice service pledge, so that the customer feels that the packaging is properly prepared for its testing.”In 2006, important revisions were made to ISO 11607, the foremost guidance document for medical device package testing. DDL helped prepare and guide packaging professionals through these revisions with a series of 3 webinars. DDL has also just launched its “Industry Standards Alert” service, which invites industry professionals to sign up to receive a notification by email or by RSS feed when an industry standard is updated.“DDL wants to be more than a package testing laboratory,” said John Hart, CEO of DDL Inc. “We want our customers to trust in DDL as an educational resource to guide them through their testing and ensure a positive outcome.”More growth lies ahead for DDL, who recently announced its expansion into the Boston area.
