An Inside Look at the Logistics of Sterile Processing Products and Manufacturing

When the Discovery Channel released the first season of “How It’s Made?” over 20 years ago, few people knew how big of a hit the documentary-style film series would be. Showing how everyday items like bubble gum, car engines, and guitars would become. The audience for the show has been growing ever since its January 6th, 2001 debut.
