Due Diligence Essential in Selecting CMO

Firms Must Look Beyond Credentials to Find the Right Partner for Their Manufacturing Needs

  • Global Concerns

    Whether a company works with a global CMO or remains in country is a strategic decision. “Valeant doesn’t own manufacturing facilities in the U.S. We outsource,” Vadal said.

    A few years ago, Valeant began nearshoring its CMO work, bringing manufacturing closer to U.S. operations without actually bringing it into the U.S. Valeant currently works with CMOs in Canada, Mexico, Brazil, and Poland. That approach takes advantage of the lower pricing possible in other nations, proximity to raw materials, and the logistical benefits of working in compatible time zones.
