Pennsylvania, PA – Thursday, March 7, 2013 – Masy Systems, Inc., a leader in validation services for over twenty-five years is pleased to announce the addition of new personnel operating out of a satellite location in Eastern Pennsylvania.  Sylvan Poeckh joined the team in 2011 focusing on service efforts in the Pennsylvania-New Jersey area.  The continued success in this area required additional staffing.  Matt Groff joined the Validation team to provide a local validation service with highly qualified personnel.

Matt Groff joins Masy Systems from the Collegeville, PA area.  Matt was awarded a full-tuition scholarship at the Webb Institute in Glen Cove, NY where he received his B.S. in Naval Architecture/Marine Engineering.  While attending the Webb Institute Matt worked as a pipefitter on the USS Enterprise, spent two months at sea in the engine room of a Chemical tanker and worked in two design offices doing ship stability calculations and 3D modeling.  Matt spent a summer semester at a Long Island company that manufactures pressure gauges, calibration hand pumps and loop calibrators for the gas industry.  This experience, combined with his previous work and school experience spiked his interest in metrology and validation.

"Sylvan's successful relationships with our customers, Matt's strong technical skills, and Clive Smith as Masy's Validation Product Manager allows us to properly address the needs of current and new customers in the local area.  We have a very strong Validation Team able to service a large footprint with excellent, local representation" said Jason Daoust, Masy's Business Development Manager.

Masy's Validation division provides validation services for sterilizers, chambers and warehouses for numerous clients in North America.  The company is NVLAP accredited to ISO 17025 for calibrations, and ISO 9001 certified.  Masy provides validation and calibration services, equipment rentals, and GMP storage for the pharmaceutical and biotech industries.
