Spiro Gavaris, President, Mallinckrodt Specialty Generics said, "We are extremely proud to receive the National Association of Manufacturers' prestigious manufacturing leadership awards for the third consecutive year. This recognition further demonstrates Mallinckrodt's history of innovative manufacturing solutions, our focus on being the US-based supplier of choice for specialty generic drugs and active pharmaceutical ingredients, and our commitment to providing patients access to quality medicines."
This year, Mallinckrodt's Hobart, N.Y. manufacturing site was recognized in the Operational Excellence Leadership category for its Packaging Changeover Improvement Project that successfully reduced the changeover time of packaging lines by 50% and decreased the variability of time to completion.
The Hobart site's Packaging Serialization Project was an award winner in the Engineering & Production Technology Leadership category for its achievement in upgrading the facility's packaging lines, which enabled production of fully serialized pharmaceutical finished product with full pallet aggregation two years ahead of FDA requirements.
"We are very pleased that NAM's Leadership Council has recognized our Hobart site for manufacturing leadership in operational excellence, as well as engineering and production technology," said David Hollingshead, Senior Director of Manufacturing.
