The company won in every category: Quality, Capabilities, Compatibility, Expertise, Reliability, and Service across all three groups of respondents (Big Pharma, Small Pharma and Overall (combined Big and Small Pharma).

The company has now won 30 CMO Leadership Awards since 2014. The awards will be presented at The CMO Leadership Awards Reception at Convene, at 237 Park Avenue on March 20, 2019 in NYC.
For the 2019 CMO Leadership Awards, Life Science Leader magazine teamed up with Industry Standard Research (ISR) to determine the award recipients. More than 120 contract manufactures were assessed by 23 performance metrics in ISR’s annual Contract Manufacturing Quality Benchmarking survey. Survey participants were recruited from Pharma and Biopharma companies of all sizes and were screened for decision-making influence related to working with contract manufacturing suppliers. Respondents only evaluate companies with which they have worked on an outsourced project within the past 18 months. This level of qualification ensures that survey responses are based on actual involvement with contract manufacturers and clear experiential data.
“Each year, the value that CMOs bring to individual biotech and pharma companies increases, as does the overall importance of the service sector to our entire and global drug development and manufacturing industry,” said Louis Garguilo, Chief Editor and Conference Chair, Outsourced Pharma.
“Amid growing industry competition, the fact that SEQENS North America continues to win CMO Leadership Awards, especially across all categories, is a testament to our people, training and equipment as well as to our results-driven culture – particularly since winners are based on input from people who work with us,” said Ed Price, president and CEO of SEQENS North America. “While we’re now known as SEQENS North America, part of a global CDMO that can offer more resources and even deeper expertise, our commitment to being responsive to our sponsors remains a core value.”
