PLASTICS' medical device and pharma committee elects two new members

The Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Applications Committee (PMDAC) of the Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS; Washington, DC), formerly SPI, announced yesterday the election of new members to its Executive Committee: Holly Bilinski, Regulatory and Materials Manager, Amcor Rigid Plastics USA LLC (Ann Arbor, MI), and Kristi Ritter, Regulatory Affairs Specialist, Berry Plastics Corp. (Evansville, IN).

Bilinski and Ritter will serve two-year terms on the Executive Committee, which directs the activities of PMDAC, a PLASTICS member group consisting of business owners, senior-level executives and quality and regulatory specialists representing raw material suppliers, formulators and compounders, auxiliary equipment manufacturers, moldmakers, processors and OEMs.

Ritter started working at Berry Plastics in 2003 after graduating from Millersville University with a B.S. in chemistry education. She started out as a lab worker and transitioned into her position of regulatory affairs specialist.

Bilinski formally began working in the plastics industry when she took a scientist position with Amcor. Soon after, she became exposed to the regulation of food, pharmaceuticals and packaging. As the corporate lead for Regulatory Affairs and Materials Technology at Amcor’s Rigid Plastics Division, Bilinski successfully navigated the company through its first FDA medical device establishment inspection.

“We believe the addition of Holly and Kristi will greatly strengthen PMDAC with the diversity of their backgrounds and their commitment to the pharmaceutical and medical device industry,” said PLASTICS Director of Industry Affairs George M. Southworth. “The entire PLASTICS family congratulates them on their election and looks forward to growing from the benefit of their insights.”
