Global biopharma and medical devices companies operating in Asia have chosen the Netherlands headquartered consulting firm Buck Consultants International as best Supply Chain Consulting Partner. The annual industry awards are assigned to supply chain partners with exceptional expertise that facilitates biomanufacturing and supply chain excellence at enhanced speed, reduced cost and superior quality. The organizer IMAPAC and its judging panel announced that Buck Consultants International received the highest number of votes from the life sciences companies that participated in this industry contest.
Sui Leng Khoo, Vice President Asia Pacific, (based in Singapore) is humbled that Buck Consultants International has been chosen by the judging panel for this prestigious award. “Healthcare is a fast growing industry in the Asia Pacific region. Countries to watch in the next years are Singapore, South Korea, China, Taiwan, Thailand and India. With its 33 years of experience in the biopharma and medtech industries Buck Consultants International is in a unique position to help life sciences companies with their manufacturing, supply chain and location strategies. This award is truly an honour and we thank the many healthcare companies who gave us the vote of confidence as their preferred strategic consulting partner.”
Patrick Haex, global leader of the supply chain consulting practice of Buck Consultants International, comments: “This is a great achievement of our team, not only in Asia, but also in the US and Europe. After all, a substantial part of our advisory work in Asia comes from European and American companies. We recognised ten years ago that supply chains and location choices for manufacturing plants and distribution centers would become more global. By setting up US offices in Atlanta, Silicon Valley and Los Angeles and in Asia in Singapore and Shanghai we offer our services all over the world. This recognition by the health care industry will be a boost for accelerated growth”.
The award was presented this week to BCI at the Asia Biomanufacturing and Biologistics conference and exhibition held in Singapore.
