No they dont-The stiff of a company just came out with a notice that in order to save 55k per year in payroll, they will now pay us a week in a rears like most companies. Fine. But in order to do this they have to hold a week back so now in June everyone will miss a weeks pay---oh we will get it when we quit-or we can even borrow it from the company but if not we get screwed a weeks pay---

The stupid thinfg is there are a couple of monthas a year we get an extra week-why not do it then? It has nothing to do with payroll savings-they need the cash-

Get ready for a ride these guys are going to drop this operation once optison comes back and takes market share. They have already suffered with the tech 99 shortage and have a flop of a launch with the MRA agent. Add to that a wierd relationship with Braaco and cardiogen you have the makings of a disaster. Run as fast as you can!!

This is absolutly the most micro managed job I have ever held. Leadership here is non-exisistant. If the economy were better it would be a revolving door for employees. Hey GE, Bracco, Covidien, blood is in the water time to go for the Kill!

Problem is, many of the competitors are killing themselves. GE is basically disecting the medical diagnostics business in both nuclear and contrast media; Coviden isn't much of a market presence, Bayer is combining their Medrad (equipment) and former Berlex (contrast) divisons, and Bracco is fat and happy but not making tons of money with a lot of solid GPO contracts that drive compliance (hence, less need for feet-on-the-street).

Keipert is such a loser... running a once proud and profitable company into the ground. Recall on Cardiolite, no manufacturer for some other products? Botched contractual deals, VP's fleeing .. WTF! He's leading us into the ground. Typical 2nd I mean 3rd string QB abilities!

Well if your waiting for the seas to part and get a great severence package...keep dreaming. All of us need to get out!! With a couple of exceptions the managers in field sales are a bunch of______! Fill in the blank with your own colorful meteaphor. I have never been so micro managed in my life for a two crappy products and failed marketing! I'll bet Pickering is so-o-o-o glad he dusted off Peter Card now! Oh...but I bet that was in the model too! Now they can't pay back the investors or they would have sold us by now.

The only good change will be when they finally put Lantheus out of it's misery. If people could leave they would. Those that can are and have left. Those left behind are waiting for their turn to be on a "plan".

My advice ask around. Find out who other reps are in the district for a contact. What area are you interviewing for? The company is a meat grinder. One good product in bag but at it's at lifecycle limit. No one is happy trust me. If you are unemployed then continue interviewing otherwise keep shopping.

If you think Sales is F/U be glad you're not in Manufacturing or Quality. On a good day it's a sweat shop. Otherwise and most of the time your treated like an endentured servant i.e. "we're paying you so your ass belongs to us and don't forget it"! Management's objective in these departments is to work people into the ground by continually demanding more and more and more from them, and then finally laying them off. The cycle perpetuates itself by asking even more of those remaining employees (slaves) till it becomes their turn to get canned! The way the executive leadership (LOL) is running this company its future may be ending up as nuclear waste site. OMG, I think I just gave Kiepert an idea to run with!!

BD (manufac) & IG (Quality) are hacks and looking to climb as high up the ladder as they can on the backs of working stiffs. Anyone know if IG has learned to speak descernable english yet? The more complex the the topic the less understadable she is. Good strategy on her part to play ignorant by being ignorant.

Well it may all be over soon. Our credit rating was dropped by Moody which will now make it hard to borrow money for a lemon aid stand.

Now Ben Venue in Ohio is telling us that they have decided to repair their operation first, and shutting it down is the best way. In other words by this time in January Feb at the latest inventory is going to be next to nothing,,or nothing..

How does a company make money when they have nothing to sell??? Can you say severance packages all around for everyone????

Ben Venue Laboratories, Inc. Update on Drug Manufacturing

Bedford, OH – December 23, 2011 – Ben Venue Laboratories, Inc., ("Ben Venue") has announced its decision to extend the voluntary suspension of manufacturing at its Bedford, OH facility, originally announced on November 19, in order to uphold its commitment to providing the highest attention to quality and product safety, and to permit the implementation of lasting corrective actions. The original suspension took place after an internal review indicated that routine preventive maintenance and requalification of some manufacturing equipment was overdue. These issues have also been noted in recent inspection findings by the FDA, EMA, and other global regulatory agencies. Ben Venue continues to conduct a site-wide assessment in order to fully understand the potential impact and implement any appropriate corrective actions that may be needed as quickly as possible to ensure that healthcare providers and patients have access to the medicines they need.

Ben Venue has been working with global regulatory agencies over the past few years to balance the need to continue supplying patients and healthcare professionals with safe and effective critical medicines while addressing manufacturing and quality-related issues. However, Ben Venue is now in a position where it can no longer continue to manufacture and remediate simultaneously and must direct its focus on addressing manufacturing-related issues.

Ben Venue’s operation in Bedford, OH is one of the largest sterile injectable facilities in the world, with aseptic filling, lyophilization and cytotoxic manufacturing in four factories. Due to the distinct technologies and manufacturing processes in each of Ben Venue’s factories, issues are being addressed separately. As we address the facility and equipment issues in each factory, we will resume production, likely one line at a time. We are now working to restore some manufacturing in the first quarter of 2012, and will provide updates as they become available.

A substantial investment of time and resources will be required to make necessary improvements in the North facility, where several sterile injectable drugs currently in short supply are manufactured. The facility requires major reconstruction that may take up to nine months to complete. We anticipate that no products manufactured in the North facility will be available to patients and healthcare professionals before the fourth quarter of 2012. It should be noted that these expectations are based on our current plans and may be revised in the future.

As many of the products that Ben Venue produces are critical to patient care, the impact of our inability to produce these products weighs heavily on us. Our highest priority is to resume manufacturing and delivery of safe and effective products, and we are committed to working as quickly as possible to resolve the issues that have affected production.

We will provide periodic updates on our website as progress is made and additional information becomes available. Questions regarding this notice can be directed to our Bedford Laboratories Client Services Team at 1.800.562.4797 - Monday – Friday, 8am – 5pm EST.

Ben Venue Laboratories, Inc. Temporarily Suspends Manufacturing and Distribution of Drug Products

November 19, 2011 – Ben Venue Laboratories, Inc, (“Ben Venue”) has voluntarily and temporarily suspended manufacture and distribution of products produced in its Bedford, OH facility.

A recent internal review of documentation indicated that routine preventive maintenance and requalification of some manufacturing equipment did not occur at the specified time interval, and is overdue. To uphold our commitment to quality and product safety, Ben Venue is completing a site-wide assessment in order to fully understand the potential impact, if any, and implement any appropriate corrective actions that may be needed as quickly as possible to ensure that healthcare providers and patients have access to the medicines they need.

Ben Venue has notified the global regulatory agencies of this voluntary preventive measure and is assessing stock levels and anticipated demand to minimize impact to product supply in the market place. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has been and will continue to work closely with Ben Venue to address these issues and help resume manufacturing and distribution of products as soon as possible.

Ben Venue is committed to providing pharmaceutical products that improve the health and quality of life of patients. As a provider of many medically-necessary drugs, including several products for which we are the sole-source manufacturer, we recognize the importance of ensuring that healthcare professionals and patients have access to the products they need, when they need them, with the highest attention to quality and product safety.

Questions regarding this notice can be directed to our Bedford Laboratories Client Services Team at 1.800.562.4797 - Monday – Friday, 8am – 5pm EST.

Ben Venue Laboratories, Inc. to Transition Out of the Contract Manufacturing Services Business Over the Next Several Years

CLEVELAND, OH – August 18, 2011 – After more than 70 years of continuous service, Ben Venue Laboratories, Inc. (BVL) has decided to transition out of the Contract Manufacturing Services business over the next several years. BVL is working with its customers to develop and implement comprehensive long-term transition plans in order to minimize potential impact of product supply. Throughout this transition process, our highest priority will remain the supply of medically necessary products for patients.

Following the multi-year transition out of contract manufacturing, BVL will dedicate its facility to manufacturing product for its Bedford Laboratories generic injectable business.

This decision is specific to the facility located in Cleveland, OH and does not alter Boehringer Ingelheim’s dedication and firm commitment to its global contract manufacturing business and its valued customers.

About Ben Venue Laboratories, Inc.

Ben Venue Laboratories, Inc. Named Recipient of the Governor’s Award for Outstanding Achievement in Environmental Stewardship

BEDFORD, OH – December 8, 2008 – Ben Venue Laboratories, Inc. is pleased to be the recipient of the 2008 Governor’s Award for Outstanding Achievement in Environmental Stewardship presented by Governor Ted Strickland and the State of Ohio Environmental Protection Agency on December 3, 2008. The award recognizes Ben Venue for its environmental, health and safety management system that strives to promote a safe and healthy manufacturing environment, including brownfield reuse and re-development, LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) construction design and application for Silver Certification for its recently completed 90,000 square foot Lab and Office facility, recycling and reuse, energy saving, and water conservation.

Coordinated by the Ohio EPA, the award seeks to acknowledge Ohio businesses and organizations demonstrating a commitment to go above and beyond compliance, maintain aggressive environmental performance goals, and provide a process for communicating with others about program activities and progress toward established goals. Submitted nominations were rated and the Ohio EPA completed site audits with the finalists to select the eight chosen honorees. "I'm honored to recognize these forward-thinking award winners, which have all demonstrated cutting-edge achievements and a commitment to environmental stewardship in Ohio," said Ohio EPA Director Chris Korleski in a press release issued by the Governor’s office. Governor Ted Strickland added "These companies are leaders in protecting Ohio's natural resources while implementing innovative approaches that reduced the cost of doing business, improved company efficiency, and enhanced the quality of life and the environment in their communities. I commend their efforts," More information about the award is available at: http://www.epa.state.oh.us/ocapp/stewardship.html.
Ben Venue Laboratories, Inc. Cares

Caring for the environment is one of the many ways Ben Venue works to make a difference. Each day, employees work to fulfill the company mission to provide their customers with pharmaceutical products that improve people’s health and quality of life. This commitment to others also stems deeply into how the organization gives back to the community through many avenues including responsible environmental stewardship. With support from all levels of the organization, the environmental health and safety management system continues to take on new life with each passing year. From activities including the careful consideration for environmentally-friendly construction design to numerous grass-roots employee efforts, Ben Venue cares about the footprint it maintains and the impact on the environment. Employees started a Waste Minimization and Recycling Team in 2005 to identify routes to recycle waste streams. Successes include saving valuable landfill space and significantly reducing waste disposal costs. The company recycled and reused 35 tons of material in 2005, 360 tons in 2006 and over 730 tons in 2007. A precious-metal recycling program that began in 2007 recovered over 170 troy ounces of platinum for a return of more than $265,000. A water reclamation system installed in 2006 saved more than 7 million gallons of water in 2006 with a cost savings of $57,000. The most recent accomplishment was the completion of the LEED Silver Certification application for its newest facility, a 90,000 square foot Lab and Office building. President and COO, Thomas Murphy stated, “This commitment is at the heart of how we conduct business today and is sure to bring about even greater results for the future.”

Hey Bill Dawes,try using some of your superlative adjectives -"fantastic, tremendous, unbelievable", to bs your way out of putting all your eggs in the BVL basket. What's your plan now- fire some more people so you can keep getting your inflated salary a little longer. Maybe you should fall on your sword before someone stabs you in the back.

Well, now that this information is out in the light of day my guess is that management will shortly come out with a statement about it. It will start with something like this- in the interest of full disclosure and our policy of maintaing honest communication with our dedicated employees...yadah yadah yadah. You get the picture. Don't be surprised if employees are asked to sacrifice something to keep the business afloat. I suggest they start with canceling Executive and Leadership team bonuses and their pay raises due in 2012. After all their decisions are responsible for the current situation. Funny how they always take credit for successes but never the blame for failures. You and I and our peers would be and have been fired for miscues of far less impact than this. The people running this company are scoundrels, which includes several turncoats that have done so to feather their own nests.

Success has a thousand fathers while failure is the lost orphan. Hopefully someone will by the business like GE or Cardinal and provide retention bonuses to those long time employees who actually built the business. Hopefully that $ will make up for all the cuts and no annual increases to employees during LMIs watch. Im sure SLT will still get the biggest retentions..its a joke...hopefully someone can see the greatness of this company and come in and clean house to start a new.

I guess it's possible but think it would be a real magic trick to get a regcognized, reputable player to buy and revive the business at this point. After all, current management hasn't been able to successfully steer the ship thus far, so why would one think they could negotiate a deal with a "real" company? Don't be suprised if they sell off the rights to the products they own--Definity, Neurolite and the Cardiolite & Technelite trade names and just make a deal for the site to someone that wants to run the cyclotrons. All the manufacturing lines, technical equipment, utilities and instrumentation can be disassembled sold to the highest bidder. The buildings can be leased by the new owners.

If there were to be any interest in buying the whole business it might come from a second tier player like Pharmalucence. If this happened, I think it would be run on a much smaller scale as a manufacturing site only and therefore be a much dfferent looking company than it is today...bye-bye Sales, Marketing, R&D, etc. etc. etc...

The most unforgivable part of the current situation is that the supplier risks have been well known for years and years, but leadership was never willing to invest in mitigating the risk. I have personally heard leadership acknowledge the need to address these issues, going back 5+ years. So the current situation is not an unfortunate, unforeseeable event but the result of incompetent management. Glad they got golden parachutes while the rank and file gets cement shoes.

I completely back up your claim. The only thing I would add is that each time these types of issues came up in the past, Management looked for and assigned the blame to a scapegoat among their subordinates. Typically laying the blame on an individual or two that they already had in their crosshairs and using it as an excuse to drive a stake through the heart. I know of multiple occassions where hard working and dedicated people were blamed for problems they did not create nor able to correct because of Management's refusal to bring "bad news" to the forefront. Anyone that warned of problems was considered NOT a team player and delt with accordilngly. Baically the message from upeer managment has always been don't make me look bad by bring up problems that are too difficult to deal with--just be cheerleader and kiss my a**. Alternatively, the a** kissers could continuely f/u and management would sweep it under the rug. That's how we've gotten to this point. A sad state of affairs but one that has been totally predictable for some time now.

This used to be the greatest company to work for! Now the culture is completely gone and the whole company is being run into the ground. It is so sad especially for those of us who helped build it. Everyone who knew how to run this company is now gone. The few old timers left are not a strong enough force to make a dent in what has gone wrong. We all used to complain about "Corporate" but oh how I would love to go back to those days!!
