AbbVie’s business and reputation rely heavily on the effort and
commitment of our suppliers. Our suppliers are our partners, helping
us meet our commitment of having a remarkable impact on patients’
lives. The AbbVie Supplier Triumph Awards recognizes and commends
exemplary supplier performance.
The spirit of this program is to commit to excellence in supplier
management. Together, we are helping to raise the bar—not only within
our corporate operations, but also within the pharmaceutical industry
as a whole. This prestigious award can be bestowed upon any supplier
around the world and all AbbVie employees are qualified to nominate a supplier.
