Pittsburgh-based Intervala LLC, a manufacturer of electronic and electromechanical products, has announced it reached a three-year agreement with OnSite Waste Technologies Inc., Newport Beach, California, to manufacture their TE-5000 medical waste processing unit.
“Our business with OnSite is an excellent example of how Intervala draws on its full-service capabilities—including engineering, materials management, assembly and integration, test and direct-order fulfillment—to tailor a manufacturing experience to each customer’s unique requirements,” says Teresa Huber, Intervala president and CEO. “We are delighted to employ this approach in our work with OnSite and to add this innovative leader to our expanding medical customer base.”
The TE-5000 is a desktop unit that converts regulated medical waste, such as sharps and red bag waste, into sterile garbage that can be discarded in regular trash. Intervala will manufacture the equipment at its facility in the greater Pittsburg area.
As OnSite’s manufacturing partner, Intervala will produce complete, ready-to-use units that incorporate a variety of custom printed circuit boards and electromechanical assemblies manufactured in-house. The company will also provide direct-order fulfillment services, shipping the fully tested, operational units to end users, including medical and dental offices, labs and other small-scale generators of hazardous medical waste.
“Realizing our dream of bringing to market a new method of convenient, safe and cost-effective medical waste technology requires a highly capable and reliable full-service manufacturing partner, and we have that in Intervala,” says Brad Barnes, CEO of OnSite. “The technical expertise, flexibility and customer-service orientation of the Intervala team is second to none, and we are thrilled to have them on our journey to revolutionize the medical waste disposal industry.”
