Elbit Systems of America (“Elbit Systems of America”) and its medical instruments division KMC Systems (“KMC”) today announced a new partnership with start-up company Aza Technology Inc. to provide a rapid blood ammonia detector.
Miguel Diaz-Acosta is listening for the beep. The 58-year-old quality control inspector is ensconced in one of KMC Systems’ inspection floors. His sky-blue anti-static jacket reflects the bright white lights flooding down from the ceiling above. He sports a jet-black face mask, rectangular metal glasses and a short crop of curly black hair.
KMC Systems continued its partnership last year with Nashua Community College’s Microelectronics Boot Camp, visiting the class in December to discuss the company’s life-saving work and opportunities for NCC students to get involved.
KMC Systems and its corporate parent, Elbit America, have responded to the demands of the global pandemic with a host of new safety protocols that have protected workers for months as cases continue to spike across the country.
This year, KMC Systems debuted its new year-long Graduate Rotation Associate Program, giving recent college graduates the chance to work on a variety of teams across the company learning about the day-to-day operations of a medical diagnostics manufacturer.
As KMC Systems continues to surge hiring of manufacturing workers to make COVID-19 testing instruments, long-time electromechanical assembler Bobby Slosek remains a steady presence on the production floor, a skilled trainer of new employees and a trusted pinch hitter for managers under the strain of ever-increasing demand.
Connie Henderson has spent decades at KMC building a reputation as a sherpa of manufacturing to her adoring colleagues. Over the course of a nearly 40-year career with Elbit Systems of America, KMC’s parent company, Henderson has solidified herself as the go-to helping hand for KMC employees old and new.
“Something I can really get behind!” Francesca Lynch, new hire and Account Manager at KMC Systems, recalls what it’s like to join a company during the pandemic that designs, develops and manufactures diagnostic test equipment that has a direct impact on the fight against Covid-19.
