Outsourced Manufacturing Makes Sense for Healthcare

Partner with Jabil to address labor shortage, flexible scaling, and technology demands

As a contract manufacturer, Jabil helps bring its customers’ visions to life. For our healthcare customers, the need for a proven, experienced partner in engineering, production, and supply chain is more intense than ever. Geoff Crouse, CEO at Candela, explains how they benefit, “Jabil brings a level of manufacturing expertise and external knowledge from multiple medical device worlds that increases our skills and capabilities exponentially.”

While today’s reasons for outsourcing are similar to the past, the tight employment market and increasing demands for technically sophisticated devices are driving more companies to outsource specialized tasks. Tania Boler, CEO and Founder of Elvie, explained how Jabil supports her teams, “One of the things I appreciate most is Jabil’s ‘work cell’ model,” Boler adds. “We have a dedicated team to ensure consistency and iron out problems in real time. With Jabil, we have a 24/7 partner who’s there if, and when, we need them.”
