Norwich, New York – December 11, 2012 – Norwich Pharmaceuticals, a provider of full-service contract development and manufacturing services for the pharmaceutical and biotech industry, announced today that the company has been recognized as Manufacturer of the Year by the Chenango County Chamber of Commerce.

“Norwich is honored to receive this important recognition from Commerce Chenango and the member companies of the Chamber,” said Terry Novak, president of Norwich. “We constantly are focused to ensure that the life-saving medications we produce meet high quality standards for our customers, for patients, and also for our local community. Norwich Pharmaceuticals is proud to be a business partner for Chenango County, its businesses and residents.”
