Case Study #1
After completing the acquisition of three new brands, a virtual OTC company needed to transition the manufacturing of these products from the former owner’s plants to new contract manufacturing partners. VBP managed the sourcing process to identify these new CMO partners, and then managed the tech transfer project activities between the client, former supplier, and new supplier. As a part of this engagement, VBP also managed all ongoing supply chain activities for this client.
Case Study #2
