HDMA honors Upsher-Smith with two DIANA Awards

September 25, 2015

Since 1959, the DIANA awards have been presented to healthcare and consumer product manufacturers that set the standard for excellence in new product introductions and promotions. DIANA winners are chosen by HDMA active members who judge companies based on several criteria including: knowledgeable salespeople, high-level customer service, demonstrated flexibility and creativity in marketing, and incorporation of new technologies to ensure product safety and security. Upsher-Smith joins an elite group of past recipients who serve as models for leadership and innovation in the healthcare marketplace.

"Upsher-Smith would like to thank HDMA members for nominating and selecting us for these awards as they further validate our longstanding commitment to excellence and demonstrate the strategic progress we are making to grow our branded pharmaceutical business in central nervous system (CNS) diseases," said Mark Evenstad, President, Upsher-Smith Laboratories. "These advances and achievements would not be possible without the dedication of our employees to whom we attribute our success."

In 2007, Upsher-Smith earned a DIANA Merit Finalist position for the 'Best Overall Generic Pharmaceutical Products Manufacturer with less than $100 Million in Sales to Healthcare Distributors,' and in 2004, Upsher-Smith received the DIANA award for 'Pharmaceutical Support Systems, Supplies and Services Best New Product Introduction and/or Product Promotion.'
