Midmark Receives Certificate of Commendation from Ohio Secretary of State’s Office

Dayton, OH
Recognized for exemplary work, outstanding employees and the STEMM program

DAYTON, Ohio, Aug. 29, 2017 — Midmark Corp., a leading provider of medical, dental and veterinary equipment and technologies, received a Certificate of Commendation from the Ohio Secretary of State’s Office of Jon Husted for exemplary work, outstanding employees and recognition for supporting the STEMM program. STEMM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in five specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine.

Midmark was recognized as an important member of Ohio’s STEMM community and has achieved great success by focusing on quality and its customers. Dr. Tom Schwieterman, VP clinical affairs and chief medical officer stated, “Midmark plays an important role in developing innovative products and solutions for healthcare providers. In many ways, our teammates exhibit perhaps one of the purest examples of how a STEMM education is being utilized to solve complex problems.”

As Midmark grows and extends beyond equipment and into a company that is creating advanced solutions for disease management, its local talent needs for STEMM will only grow. The company has every intention to continue to embolden local support of STEMM programming in local schools. Through its workforce development program, the company partners with several local high schools in Darke County.

Midmark also offers a four-year, $20,000 college scholarship for a local student pursuing a degree in a technical field, which includes co-op experience as well as a full-time job opportunity after graduation. The company hires several co-ops each term in electrical, computer, mechanical and biomedical disciplines.

Sue Hulsmeyer, senior director, human resources commented, “We encourage students to figure out what they want to do when they finish high school. If you want to go to college after high school, we have jobs for you. If you want to go right to work after high school, we have jobs for you.”

In May, Midmark announced the construction of a technology center on its Versailles, Ohio, campus to facilitate the company’s recent and future growth and strengthen its new product development process and technological capabilities. The company is currently in the initial phases of the project with the goal of breaking ground late in the year or beginning of 2018.
