Accupac Launches Innovative Customer Service Model
Accupac redefines its already outstanding customer service for the world’s largest pharmaceutical and consumer products companies. This leader in liquid contract manufacturing had always dedicated a project manager to each client to serve as an on-call advocate. How does it get better? Now, Accupac is creating customized teams for each client.
“Our clients have always appreciated having one point of contact for all their needs,” said Mark Hinkel, Director of Marketing and Sales. “We are taking our customer service to an even higher level by having an entire dedicated team at their disposal.”
The customized team drives, launches and manages projects from start to finish with the client and internally at Accupac. As the client’s account needs change, Accupac adds the needed resources. Each team member is an expert in their own area of specialization, such as engineering or sales.
To execute this new phase in their rewarding business partnerships, Accupac has added qualified experts to the company over the last several months.
Andrew Zelez has come aboard as Regional Director of Sales. He brings Accupac 30 years of direct industry experience, most recently with Catalent Pharma Solutions. Zelez handles materials management/procurement; planning and scheduling; operations management; project management and sales and business development.
