Innovating for Mothers

Elvie

As the world’s largest healthcare manufacturing solutions provider, Jabil enables brands to bring consumers products better designed for their health.

The design of the breast pump for nursing mothers, for example, hadn’t changed for decades. It needed to be plugged into a wall. It also was noisy and often painful to use. Tania Boler, the CEO and founder of Elvie, envisioned a revolutionary new design—so she developed a device that upended tradition—a product tailored to the needs of modern women and families.

The Elvie is the world’s first silent wearable breast pump. Jabil worked with Boler and her team to bring it to market, integrating our expertise in consumer electronics, digital healthcare and regulatory experience to address the biggest engineering challenges. By also leveraging Jabil’s highly developed electronics supply chain for the healthcare sector, we were able to move quickly and optimize the supply chain experience, which has a tendency to be traditionally slow and expensive.

“We needed expertise in everything from hardware and firmware to software. Selecting Jabil as our best-in-class manufacturing partner was a no-brainer decision because they brought so much experience across so many different partners and product categories.”
— Tania Boler, CEO and Founder, Elvie

Jabil was also able to support Elvie through the complex FDA regulatory requirements to bring the new pump to market. And, following the launch, we met the demand for doubled production within weeks of its release due to its unprecedented popularity.

Jabil is proud to be a partner to Elvie, to be able to showcase Jabil’s manufacturing agility and engineering prowess to make a difference in the lives of the women and families. For more information on this partnership, please visit the case study and video on our website.
