Modality Solutions has hired Andrew Larrigan as consulting engineer, which involves writing proposals and reports for a distribution and thermal testing.
His main tasks include conducting transportation simulation testing, designing and implementing thermal packaging applications, and updating standard operating procedures and forms.
He will work at the Advantage Transportation Simulation Laboratory™, which provides valuable data on the impact of environmental hazards temperature, humidity, pressure, shock, and vibration and the effect they have on the critical-to-quality attributes of products.
Modality Solutions’ key areas of service are to ensure regulatory compliance; deliver cold chain thermal packaging designs, qualifications, and controlled-environment logistics solutions; conduct transport simulation testing; decrease development cycle times for a faster route-to-market; develop transport validation strategies to support global regulatory applications; and manage clinical trial operations’ cold chain.
Prior to joining Modality Solutions, Larrigan worked for Camelot Trucking in Alvada, Ohio. In operations and dispatch, he used his organisational and communication skills to coordinate jobs with drivers and logistic companies.
Modality Solutions’ principal and chief financial officer (CFO) Daniel J. Littlefield said: "Andrew’s high levels of organisation and teamwork were part of what attracted Modality Solutions to invite Andrew to join the team."
Larrigan attended Ohio State University, where he received his degree in Chemical Engineering. While at university, Larrigan immersed himself in the Air Pollution, Experimental Design, Modeling and Simulation, and Fuel Cells courses. It was in these he found his passion for learning and educating about the environment.
