Poly Hi Solidur Receives Prestigious Supplier Award
For the second time in three years, Poly Hi Solidur MediTECH® has been named Supplier of the Year in the Raw Material/Engineered Product category by Smith and Nephew Orthopedics at its annual invitation-only supplier symposium. Poly Hi Solidur MediTECH® manufactures a special formulation of TIVAR® and Chirulen® which is used to produce orthopedic implants.

Poly Hi Solidur MediTECH® was the only supplier in this category to achieve 100 percent quality and 100 percent delivery during the year 2002. According to Smith and Nephew Orthopedics, “Poly Hi Solidur MediTECH® rose above this elite group due to their partnering attitude, clearly exemplified in their work with the Smith and Nephew Orthopedics.”

Smith and Nephew Orthopedics hosts the symposium each year to help educate its top suppliers on the status of Smith and Nephew Orthopedics’ business, future direction and the overall health of the orthopedic industry. Only the top 20 suppliers, those that meet certain volume, predetermined quality and delivery require-ments, and are considered essential to the success of the Smith and Nephew Orthopedics organization are invited to the symposium.
