Diabetes Monitoring And Management Company Also Purchases Two Buildings In Fort Lauderdale, FL
Fort Lauderdale, FL – Nipro Diagnostics, Inc. has won the Manufacturers Association of Florida (MAF) 2011 Manufacturer of the Year Award. The company was recognized in the large-company (500+ employees) category. The award, based on evaluation of leading-edge management practices, manufacturing and process quality, and other performance-excellence criteria, was presented at the 2011 MAF Manufacturers Summit & Marketplace award ceremony on December 1, 2011. The event was attended by Florida’s leading manufacturers as well as Florida Governor Rick Scott.
“This award is a tribute to the employees of Nipro Diagnostics,” said CEO and President Scott Verner. “We build excellence into every aspect of our operations, and this recognition exemplifies our dedication to manufacturing quality blood glucose monitoring systems. I congratulate every employee who has helped us achieve and maintain our quality/value leadership position in our industry.” Nipro Diagnostics – formerly Home Diagnostics, Inc. – is a leading manufacturer and marketer of diabetes monitoring and management products with headquarters and manufacturing facilities in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
Governor Scott, commenting on Nipro Diagnostics’ MAF award, said: “Congratulations to Nipro Diagnostics on receiving this recognition. As a low cost manufacturer of products for people with diabetes, the company plays a vital role in making healthcare more affordable."
Out of the nearly 18,000 manufacturers in Florida, just seventeen were selected as finalists. “Every organization that makes it to the finalist round of the Manufacturers Association of Florida competition is very deserving. Competing against the other great companies in our category like Anheuser-Busch InBev, Inc., BAE Systems, Georgia-Pacific Corporation and Publix Supermarkets, makes this achievement have greater significance,” Verner commented.
The criteria for winning Manufacturer of the Year includes leadership, strategic planning, customer and market focus, measurement, analysis and knowledge management, workforce focus, and process management. The panel of judges visited each finalist company’s facility to evaluate organizational practices pertinent to the six judging criteria categories.
Nipro Diagnostics also announced the purchase of two buildings in Fort Lauderdale. The company will expand manufacturing, as well as other operations, in these two facilities. “The acquisition of these buildings solidifies our presence in South Florida and is another example of our commitment to growing our business,” Verner stated.
“Our company, products and employees have received significant recognition – including having our TRUEresult® and TRUE2go® Meters highly rated by a leading independent consumer magazine, two Manufacturer of the Year awards, and Vendor of the Year from our customers – and we look forward to building on these successes.”
Earlier this year, Nipro Diagnostics was named South Florida Manufacturer of the Year in the 200+ employee category. The award was based on exemplifying benchmark-level quality with the recognition awarded by industry peers.
