Hear from our Senior Director of Manufacturing Operations

Ted Carlson, Senior Director of Manufacturing Operations at Upsher-Smith Laboratories

I get asked by people all the time what makes Upsher-Smith special. I tell them "We're an awesome place to work!"

Our culture honors its employees and the company has a mission they can feel proud about. The Upsher-Smith mission - to make quality affordable medications that improve the lives of patients and families - which made a huge impression on me, was a major factor in my own decision to join Upsher-Smith.

Some of the many benefits we offer in our manufacturing and packaging division include competitive wages, educational reimbursement and ongoing training designed to help employees grow in their careers. As we like to say, we’re big enough to attract the right people, and small enough to care about them. We treat coworkers like family, making a point to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries and offer other fun perks you won’t find everywhere else.

When you’re an Upsher-Smith employee, no matter what your role, you can feel proud knowing the work you do makes a difference. Join me and Upsher-Smith, so that you, too, can make a difference!
