On June 14, 2022, The Manufacturers’ Association honoured outstanding members and organizations at the Association’s 116th Annual Event at PeoplesBank Park, York, PA, USA.
SCHOTT North America was presented with the Manufacturer of the Year award for their contribution to the local economy. SCHOTT, employing over 300 at the plant, has manufactured glass pharmaceutical vials since 2004 in Lebanon County.
Last year the company made a multi-million-dollar investment to triple its manufacturing capacity to meet the need for 5 billion COVID Vaccine doses. This demand led to a record year for the company.
SCHOTT vials are being used in 75 percent of all COVID-19 vaccine projects and every second, 20 people from around the world receive medicine from a container produced by SCHOTT. As an Association member, SCHOTT has also invested significant resources in leadership training through the Association for their employees. Chris Cassidy, Vice President, Pharmaceutical Systems at SCHOTT North America, accepted the award.
