How We Hire
DIVERSITY IN OUR WORKPLACE
Through the last three decades, Knipper has continued to embody a family-like environment. Our family of contributors come from all walks of life, bringing their own experiences with them each day, some with a long history and others just starting their work journey.
We cherish our contributors’ rich and diverse backgrounds. We recognize that it is through our contributors’ unique qualities that they bring to work each day that propels Knipper to be innovative in our solutions and focused on the good work to be done each day, creating the shortest path from patient to therapy.
“I started at Knipper in 1995 as a Network Administrator. Throughout the years I have been able to witness and participate in many facets of Knipper’s ascension to the largest provider of sample management services. Change is constant; from the sale of the company to McKesson, to the divestiture back to Jim Knipper, and throughout the numerous acquisitions there has never been a lack of opportunity for growth as evidenced by my current role as Senior Vice President.
What does not change is the most important which are the values and principles instilled into the company by Jim and his father Joe from inception. Today, these values are represented in our CHART principles and provide a foundation for our actions.
As we continue to evolve and embark on our next chapter it is still exciting to be part of a team that is focused on delivering value to our customers, community, company, and contributors.”
– David Merkel, Senior Vice President
I joined J. Knipper & Co. in 1992 for a short-term, temporary project; twenty-five years later I am still here. I began as a line assembly worker and over time was able to utilize my skillsets in other departments and positions. I was able to learn and grow into my current position as Sr. Manager of Operations.
The work we do here is not only important to the success of the pharmaceutical companies we service but to the health of patients as well. My time here at J. Knipper and Company and the work we perform has been challenging and satisfying.”

“I had the good fortune of meeting a man by the name of Joseph Knipper over 20 years ago. Joe was an amazing man and I was impressed by the respect that he had for his employees. Joe knew everyone by their first name, and he would walk out onto the production floor and give a big hello to anyone who crossed his path. Over the years, Knipper has grown and continues to add employees to our team, but in my opinion, we never forgot our roots or what brought us to where we are now – it still feels like the old days. I have always been proud to work for this organization and grateful for what I have learned, and the growth opportunities and career goals that Knipper has helped me to achieve.”
