Upsher-Smith Laboratories Receives DIANA Award

Upsher-Smith Laboratories, LLC is a company well-known for taking pride in its commitment to product and supply excellence, and today it received some industry validation of its dedicated efforts by receiving a DIANA Award during this year’s Healthcare Distribution Alliance (HDA) virtual Business and Leadership Conference. The DIANA is one of the pharmaceutical distribution industry’s most prestigious awards.

The Maple Grove, Minn.-based pharmaceutical company was honored with the HDA 2021 DIANA Award for the Best Overall Branded Pharmaceutical Product Manufacturer With Less Than $300 Million in Sales to Healthcare Distributors. Each year, HDA distributor members are asked to nominate their top five manufacturer partners and the award is given out based on that process. Upsher-Smith has earned 12 DIANA awards throughout its history, and the award itself has been around since 1959.

“Winning the DIANA for the Branded Rx area says so much about how our wholesaler partners see Upsher-Smith,” says Mike McBride, VP Partner Relations with Upsher-Smith. “As a company, we seek to consistently provide exemplary product quality and supply across both our brand and generic product lines, and we’re proud of our continuing history of product and supply excellence, especially during the unprecedented circumstances of 2020.”

Because of the pandemic, this year’s award ceremony took place online and the Upsher-Smith team participated in a virtual photoshoot to mark the occasion.
