What do KMC Systems, Careers and Family Have in Common?

Friends and former colleagues Gail Wiegand and Christine Long celebrate Christine's retirement from KMC Systems.

Adieu, farewell, but never goodbye. Those are the unspoken rules by which close friends and family agree to upon departing. Such was the case last Friday as Christine Long began her retirement from the KMC Systems family.

Fond memories were shared by all last Friday as we celebrated with a “Happy Retirement” cake and wished Christine well. As she embarks on her long-awaited retirement, a picture of the sun rising over the ocean is still affixed to the wall in her office – representing new beginnings.

Christine worked at KMC Systems as a Supplier Quality Engineer for ten years. Her experience and tenure improved the methods and control of the materials as well as the quality of suppliers that KMC relies on to produce and deliver world-class medical instrumentation to our customers.

Christine shared with her KMC family the wisdom of what’s most important to her in life:

  • Take care of your health
  • Maintain a positive view
  • Treasure your relationships
  • Live your purpose, values, and dreams

Although Christine is now retired, she personifies the strong bond that members of the KMC Systems family share. With common values, passion for continuous improvement and unwavering loyalty to the Elbit Systems of America mission to “provide innovative solutions that protect and save lives,” we thank Christine Long for being a part of the KMC Systems family.

Farewell, Christine. See you soon!

In it, KMC Systems engineers, Jack Kessler and Jerry Sevigny, and senior program manager, Spencer Lovette, discuss three key elements in assessing IVD medical product feasibility and how, “assigning marketing, engineering, or operations as the sole source for defining new product features and functions can yield not only radically different products but, more importantly, products that do not meet customer needs.”
