To Our Valued Customers,

As we enter 2023, I wish to personally thank you for your continued support and partnership. The post-pandemic political and global climates have certainly tested our resilience in over-coming disruptions in supply chains, rising costs and interest rates, and filling supply and demand with a fiercely competitive and limited human capital resource pool.

Throughout these challenges, we have partnered to address issues through give and take, mutual respect, and an unwavering shared commitment to saving and improving lives around the world.

For our part, we continue to invest domestically and internationally in fully integrated capabilities, equipment, automation, and nearshoring opportunities that not only ensure business continuity for our customers but also streamline processes, optimize output, and ensure the highest quality products that doctors and patients can rely on.

We are grateful to begin 2023 as your partner in innovative solutions. We remain fully committed to operational excellence and delivering superior quality products and services that provide peace of mind and exceed expectations for our shared goals of making our world a better place.

Wishing you a year of peace, health, and prosperity.

Jason Howey
