Education tracks include: Manufacturing Operations, Equipment & Technology, Regulatory, Facilities and Project Management. Rounding out this year’s Education Program is the new Training Workshop Series. Topics include: Stability Considerations in Design and Manufacturing of Pharmaceutical Products, How to Write Effective CAPA Investigation Reports for the FDA-Regulated Industry (Two Days) and Quality Risk Management and Design for Shipping/Transportation Studies of Pharmaceutical Products.

Building off of last year’s successful educational program, INTERPHEX Puerto Rico has worked closely with their partners – INDUNIV, PRTEC, PRMA, USGBC Caribbean Chapter & LASCE – and their Advisory Board to create a program that is focused on the latest industry topics and trends. With educational sessions and technical seminars given by experts, attendees will learn from in-depth analysis, case studies, lively panel discussions and take-a-ways aligned to meet their career priorities.

Ivan Lugo, Executive Director of INDUNIV, explained that “INTERPHEX is known for effectively delivering the necessary tools that professionals need to optimize production and improved the quality of their company’s products and services. We have procured world renowned speakers recognized for the successful integration of innovative processes in their companies that can be easily emulated by businesses located on the island”. A sample of headlining speakers include: George Bandy, Vice President of Sustainability of Interface; Mike Salinas Director of Manufacturing Technology for M+W U.S., Inc.; Bill Constantino, Founder and Sr. Partner, W3 Group; and Jean Pierre Allard, Serialization Product Manager for Optel Vision, among others.

On subjects like sustainability, the participants will have the opportunity to hear about strategies implemented by George Bandy in his lecture titled Practical Energy and Supply Chain Management Strategies. Bandy is known internationally for implementing innovative processes in Interface, a carpet manufacturing plant, whose mission is to be 100% sustainable by year 2020. His initiatives have also had an effect on the economic development and job creation for rural areas. In the Philippines for example, where millions of pounds of torn fish nets were thrown into the ocean, he helped create a fisherman’s credit union. This new association of workers now recollects useless fishnets, made with the same nylon fabric used to manufacture carpets, and sells them to Interface, promoting recycling and economic development of the area.
