The best team working for the best company

J. Knipper and Company provides a welcoming and enjoyable atmosphere where our Contributors share a common goal: to improve the lives and health of patients. Our organization helps pharmaceutical and life sciences companies get drug samples and informative literature into the hands of the patients that need them. We refer to our employees as Contributors because we all contribute to the success of the overall organization from the pick pack operator that fills the box to ship out, to the customer service representative that takes patient calls, to the executives meeting with the clients to work through strategy development.

Each individual contributor has a unique perspective and an exciting purpose here at J. Knipper and Company. Our culture revolves around five core values represented by the acronym CHART. Chart stands for Caring – Honesty – Accountability – Respect – Trust. These five values are at the center of our mission to create relationships, both internally and externally, and to strategically develop solutions for our clients. Our teams incorporate professionals from diverse backgrounds and industries to provide us with an edge in strategic development and execution.

At the heart of Knipper, comes a family-centric environment focused on getting to know colleagues like family and a work-life balance giving Contributors the ability to go home and recharge at the end of the day. We work in an environment that allows our Contributors to build those long lasting, professional relationships with their colleagues as well as with our external clients. When your daily interactions revolve around such positive values like CHART, it’s hard not to start building those types of bonds. Our Contributors are nominated through our C.H.A.R.T. Recognition Program for acting and working in a CHART-like manner. Receiving this distinguished award helps promote and enhance career development and leadership throughout the organization.

Knipper is an integral part of the communities where we work and live. A dedicated team, made up of all levels of the organization, leads community service activities and initiatives throughout the year. In addition to the work that Knipper does as an organization, our employees donate their time and money, as individuals, to support causes across the state and the nation.

Knipper was awarded the Clara Barton Corporate Humanitarian Award by the American Red Cross and the Corporate Citizen of the Year award by Catholic Charities for all of the volunteer efforts of Knipper and its employees.

Due to our family-centric environment, many of the activities planned by the Knipper Activities Committee (KAC) includes the Contributors’ family members. There are a number of events planned such as Bring Our Sons and Daughters to Work Day, Contributor Picnics, and our Annual Holiday/Anniversary Party.
The Committee also plans community events such as fundraisers and internal events such as Get Fit Friday, where Contributors gather together to bond over healthy snacks and good conversation. The KAC has members from all levels of the organization so hopefully we’ll see you at the next meeting!

Through recycling, conserving water, and utilizing alternative energy we empower our Contributors to participate in our companywide environmental sustainability commitment. Each employee receives a re-usable water bottle and coffee mug, as well as, the ability to utilize our glassware, utensils and glass dishes for guests, candidates, and clients. Our distribution centers have solar panels that support 50% of the energy required to run our operations. As a company we are Growing Greener Every Day.

Knipper and Company currently has five locations in New Jersey – Lakewood (2), Somerset, Lawrenceville and Lyndhurst. In 2016, we expanded to the Midwest to Charlestown, IN to increase our reach to the West Coast and utilize the expansive shipping hub near Louisville, KY. This shortens our shipping times to the West Coast significantly and allows us to better meet our clients’ needs.

“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
