Vice president, co-founder

Packaging Compliance Labs

Ryan Erickson is making an impact in the health care industry in more ways than one.

He is the co-founder of Packaging Compliance Labs, a health care packaging design, development and validation firm that places an emphasis on patient safety and FDA compliance for sterile medical device products.

In 2020, Erickson and his partner expanded their business by creating Packaging Compliance Medical, a contract manufacturing/packaging business that supports small businesses that are in the process of launching new medical technologies in the market.

Along with being able to work with medical manufacturers to ensure that products are properly packaged to meet federal standards, Erickson said he is proud of the employment opportunities he has been able to provide.

“I’m most proud of the 30-plus full-time jobs we have created within a few short years, allowing dozens of families in the community to have stable and secure footing they can rely on,” he said.

Outside of his profession, Erickson also is supporting individuals who need a helping hand. He is the husband of a disabled military veteran. His wife is a 12-year Army National Guard veteran who was deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. When she returned, she developed a chronic illness related to her military service.

Despite the disability, the Ericksons recently were able to help another veteran who was struggling financially because of mental health issues by furnishing an apartment.

“Even now, despite her illness, she continues to be a champion for our local veterans and is always finding opportunities to enhance the lives of those around her,” he said.
