“For over a decade, these awards have been the most meaningful for biopharma organizations striving to obtain optimal outcomes from their outsourcing activities. Our research arm, ISR Reports, which only surveys drug sponsors who have worked directly and recently with specific CDMOs, ensures the validity of these results. Our winners are your gold-medalists of outsourcing.” Louis Garguilo, Chief Editor and Conference Chair, Outsourced Pharma.

The magazine has issued CMO Awards annually since 2011, and AbbVie has received recognition each year. 

“Industry Standard Research is proud to be a part of the CDMO Leadership Awards. ISR’s research methodology ensures that the people who participate in the contract manufacturing benchmarking market research are highly qualified decision-makers with first-hand experience working with the suppliers they evaluate. These awards are based on experiential feedback and enable users of ISR’s market research to make data-driven decisions with respect to choosing an outsourcing partner. It also means the winners of these awards have been delivering the highest quality of service according to their current and recent customers and are deserving of these accolades for their distinction.” Kate Hammeke, Vice President, Industry Standard Research
