St. Charles Hospital, Catholic Health Services of Long Island, Port Jefferson, NY.

I was fortunate to be linked up with Greg from a colleague at the hospital. He was highly recommended to me for a product that I am developing to solve a problem in my industry. I am a Nurse Anesthetist currently working in acute care settings and I discovered a problem that costs hospitals money, wastes oxygen, and creates a fire hazard in many settings. So I developed an idea for a product that solves this problem. I have been working with Greg Marler for a few years now and his engineering expertise was instrumental in the development of the product making it possible to bring my idea to fruition.  Greg has been great to work with, extremely educational, and inspirational in his wisdom and ideas. He has not only been involved in the engineering of the prototype but also very helpful with his consultation with product development, production, and distribution ideas. I would highly recommend Greg to anyone with an idea that they have interest in developing. He is innovative, knowledgeable about the industry, very trustworthy, and experienced.  As far as my interaction with Greg I’m completely satisfied and look forward to our continued collaboration on this and other projects in the future.

Manager of Operations, Mentor Corporation - A subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson.

Greg possesses superior work ethics and phenomenal creativity, which has been beneficial for an ongoing project at Byron Medical.  With Greg’s excellent engineering knowledge and his creative thinking skills, our manufacturing integration project was successful.  Greg was able to drill down and assess our production procedures, suggest and implement continuous improvement, and pass on important information to the employees in manufacturing.

I highly recommend Greg Marler for critical engineering roles in product development and mechanical engineering.

Alan C. Hinton

Program Director, Supply Chain Quality, Mentor Corporation - A subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson.

Greg has demonstrated himself as a competent engineer and designer supporting a wide range of medical devices manufactured both in-house and through contract manufacturers.  He authored several manufacturing and quality control procedures and work instructions.  He designed and implemented process and product validations, prepared and maintained Design History Files to meet US FDA requirements, and Technical Files in conformance with European Medical Device Directives.

Greg has my highest recommendation.
