March 2014 – Galway, Ireland
syncreon proud to be recognized by Boston Scientific
On Wednesday March 26, syncreon’s Pat Burke and Darren Casey attended for the Boston Scientific Galway 2013 Supplier Achievement Awards to accept the award in behalf of the company.
Each year BSC Galway reviews and rates the performance of its suppliers. They look at key areas: Quality, Cost, Service and Innovation. Suppliers that BSC feels have contributed most in terms of the above are selected to receive awards.
This year syncreon was chosen based on the fact that the company contributed an effective solution to an business challenge that BSC encountered in 2013. This coupled with the the general manner in which syncreon has engaged with BSC over the years made BSC want to recognize syncreon.
