Based in Lakewood, New Jersey, J. Knipper and Company is on a mission to service the life science, pharmaceuticals, and healthcare industries with logistics capabilities and state-of-the-art systems, which guarantee customer satisfaction. Now celebrating its 35th anniversary, Supply Chain World speaks with Knipper leadership team to reflect on the company’s past achievements, and the success yet to come.
Impressive developments have taken place the past 5 years. In 2016, Knipper opened a Midwest distribution facility located in Charlestown, Indiana. This facility is centrally located and can expedite shipments to any destination point in the US. In 2017, the company established its custom pharmacy solutions business unit, KnipperRx. This independent specialty pharmacy was designed to help companies overcome the complex barriers that often hinder patient access to drugs. At the start of 2020, Knipper acquired Eagle Pharmacy, which helped manufacturers overcome obstacles that prevent or delay patients from accessing the therapy they need. In 2021, Knipper expanded the Midwest facility to address the growing needs of its customers.
Throughout its tenure, the company has assembled a noteworthy group of offerings for its customers. With Knipper Marketing and Samples Management business unit and Knipper 3rd Party Logistics, they were able to focus on distributing pharmaceutical samples to physicians, which than leads to samples in patients’ hands. One aspect that Knipper is incredibly proud of is its capability to redefine its services over the years, investing heavily in advanced technologies to offer the best-in-class systems. Another key differentiator, as Senior Vice President of Operations, Vic Ricci, expresses, is the advanced technology implemented regularly over many years to help the company further increase its efficiency. “We provide unique, tailored solution for each and every client.”
As Knipper celebrates its 35th anniversary, the company is excited about the future and potential that lies within their company to serve the ever-expanding needs of the health care industry.
