Nypro Healthcare, a developer and manufacturer of diagnostic, pharmaceutical and medical devices, recently won the 2014 BD Global Award for Partnership Supplier of the Year. The award recognizes Nypro Healthcare’s world-class capabilities and performance beyond the customer-vendor relationship and showcases the company’s value as a strategic collaboration partner.
Inaugurated in 2010, the BD Supplier Recognition Program honors those suppliers who have made significant contributions to advancing or supporting key BD initiatives, products, processes and customer satisfaction. The program aligns with BD’s overall global procurement strategy of achieving the best supply base to help the company drive innovation, continuous improvement and operational excellence.
“The award is a major accomplishment and great source of pride for us,” said Randy Myers, VP and general manager at Nypro Healthcare. “It underscores our dedication in building a partnership with BD that extends well beyond transactional business support. The partnership now spans from addressing source and supply to manufacturing and global supply chain development to support new product platforms and new product design.”
On hand to speak to the importance of the relationship with Jabil and to hand out awards were Steve Sichak, senior VP of integrated supply chain; James Borzi, VP of global manufacturing; and Chris Shanahan, VP of global procurement.
“We congratulate Nypro Healthcare for winning the BD Global Award for Partnership Supplier of the Year. In 2014, our two companies successfully executed several strategic projects, including critical launches for new products across several BD divisions that accelerated both time to market and helped us to optimize cost structures,” said Sichak. “Nypro Healthcare continues to work hand in hand with BD’s Expectation for Suppliers program by helping us roll out the program to BD’s supply base and exemplifying the partnership that has led to this recognition.”
Receiving the award for Nypro Healthcare on May 5th at BD’s headquarters in Franklin Lakes, NJ were Myers; Brent Stellburg, business unit director; Ed Werner, senior director of business development; and Mike Mahaz, business unit director.
