The contributions of Jubilee Syringe Manufacturing Company to the healthcare needs and development of the country have again by acknowledged with a special recognition healthcare excellence award 2021.
The JSM stood out last weekend at Lagos, for manufacturing locally- made syringes and contributing to Nigeria’s healthcare sector.
The award was presented to the company at the Nigerian Healthcare Excellence Award 2021.
Established in 2017 and located in Akwa Ibom, Jubilee Syringe Manufacturing company is Africa’s largest syringe making company, with a daily production capacity of over two million syringes.
The project coordinator of the award, Dr Shola Alabi said the company has distinguished itself in various aspects including: a daily production capacity of over two million syringes, effective quality control mechanism, staff welfare and contributions to the welfare needs of Nigerians.
Alabi noted that several companies were considered for the award but “JSM stood out in all aspects. If you visit the company in Onna Local Government Area, Akwa Ibom, you’ll see a unique facility that is environmentally-decent with highly intelligent workers and quality services.”
He urged the management and staff to keep up the good works and do more to help society and humanity.
The managing director of JSM, Mr Akin Oyediran thanked the organisation for the award, saying they had impacted the healthcare sector and lives of Nigerians by consistently providing only high quality syringes.
Oyediran described their syringes as safe to use because they undergo an extensive process of quality assurance.
“We have empowered young and mid-level healthcare professionals with over 50 per cent workforce of pharmacists, nurses and other healthcare professionals.
” We also empower other local manufacturers who supply the raw materials for production.
” We produce 2.5 million syringes daily, we have three types of disposable syringes (2ml, 5ml and 10ml) made with state of the art technology and quality medical grade raw materials,” he said.
Oyediran said that they would continue to produce good and high quality syringes as their contribution to the improvement and development of the Nigerian healthcare sector.
“Recently, the Senate passed a bill that healthcare providers should support locally made syringes in Nigeria which made hospitals to accept our products.
“A lot of bad syringes are been imported into the country right now, which is not good for our health system.
“The Federal government wants to ban the importation, the impact of the ban will make Nigeria access quality health devices.
“We are looking forward to that move, because it will help manufacturers to grow, expand and produce good quality syringes made in Nigeria,” he said.
