“It was a great honor to receive the Faces of Manufacturing Award from the Georgia Manufacturing Extension Partnership at Georgia Tech,” said Prashant. “I could not have done it without the support of my entire manufacturing team who is like a family to me. It has been enormously satisfying to be a part of Triatek’s growth and I hope that my contributions will benefit the company, its employees, and our customers by providing important, life-saving products for healthcare facilities and laboratories for years to come.”
As the Director of Production and Procurement, Prashant designed Triatek’s production workflow, continuously works to improve production processes, and ensures a quality product is manufactured.
