"Big changes are transforming the pharma and nutra industries. Many aseptic and solid dose manufacturers are re-shoring their processing and packaging activities back to North America, causing a big spike in domestic demand for production line equipment. Additionally, 503B compounding pharmacies are now overseen by the FDA, which means they’re under new regulations. In the nutra space, business is booming in the wake of the COVID pandemic,” said Mark Laroche, Vice President of Sales for NJM. “Susan’s deep technical and application expertise, along with her strong customer relationships, make her a valuable resource for delivering ideal solutions, from standalone systems to fully-integrated, turnkey lines.”
