-- Hobart, N.Y., Site Honored for Enabling Manufacturing Excellence --

STAINES-UPON-THAMES, United Kingdom, March 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Mallinckrodt plc (NYSE: MNK), a leading specialty pharmaceutical company, announced today it has been recognized as a Frost & Sullivan Manufacturing Leadership Award winner for its outstanding achievement in three categories – Operational Excellence Leadership, Supply Chain Leadership and Sustainability Leadership.

The company's Hobart, N.Y., manufacturing site earned all three awards through its highly successful implementation of key two-year initiatives designed to enhance multiple aspects of its manufacturing operations. These projects included:

  • Operational Excellence: The management team set the goal to become the agile supplier of choice while engaging employees in a culture focused on serving customers through sustainable delivery of high quality products. They developed a forward-looking strategy, identifying areas for improvement and taking strong actions to ensure the established objectives were met.
  • Supply Chain: Working collaboratively across the plant, as well as with commercial and other support functions, and benefiting from operational changes, the team implemented process modifications in inventory forecasting and scheduling. These resulted in value-added customer service and more effective cost management.
  • Sustainability: The Hobart leadership team manages sustainability through a site-wide governance process to ensure they are thoroughly embracing manufacturing processes that are non-polluting, conserve energy and natural resources, and are economically sound and safe for employees, communities, and consumers.

"We are very pleased our Hobart site has been recognized by Frost & Sullivan's Manufacturing Leadership Council for manufacturing excellence in not just one but three categories," said Dr. Frank Scholz, Executive Vice President, Global Operations and President, Specialty Generics for Mallinckrodt. "The team has worked hard these past few years to enhance processes and outcomes at the site, and we are proud of the employees' efforts to ensure we are a supplier of choice when it comes to these important products."

Mallinckrodt will be recognized at the 14th Annual Manufacturing Leadership Awards Gala, which is to be held on the last day of the Manufacturing Leadership Summit, June 11-13, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort and Spa in Huntington Beach, Calif.
