Update on our Puerto Rico Bard-Parker Production

June 8, 2018

***FINAL UPDATE***

Dear Valued Customer,

At Aspen Surgical we have continued to monitor the recovery effort in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria and worked to limit disruption in the supply of Bard-Parker® products to our customers.

Our facility is running at full production, and we have added extra shifts to help fulfill customer orders as quickly as possible. We are continuing to receive a steady stream of product from our facility in Puerto Rico, with significant improvement to our backorder and inventory position over the last month. We are excited to report that we have removed all codes from allocation, and most codes are now up to their planned safety stock levels at our Caledonia Michigan distribution center.

As we have reviewed our inventory position and historical customer sales, we now feel confident that we can not only fulfill current orders, but also support bringing back any remaining customers that had moved away from Bard-Parker for a brief time following the hurricane. We ask that you please communicate with your local Aspen sales rep or prime distribution partner to work through this transition as appropriate.

In addition, to mitigate the risk of similar events in the future, we have made significant improvements at our site, including:

  • Standalone well water supply
  • 3 diesel suppliers approved for our production site
  • 10,000-gallon tank of diesel secured for peak hurricane season
  • Employees fully prepared with generators

You may also be aware of other infrastructure improvements in Puerto Rico such as a stronger electrical grid system, two airports fit to carry air freight (one added since September of 2017), and four additional ports of entry on the island. We are also planning to hold additional weeks of supply beyond safety stock at our Caledonia distribution center to help give us cushion in the event we experience another severe storm in the future.

Above all, we appreciate your partnership, and we are delighted to work with you to fully service our mutual customers with the Bard-Parker product line.  Please note that this will be our final email/website update for the Bard-Parker recovery effort.  Should you have any questions/concerns that arise, contact your local Aspen sales representative, or customer service at 888-364-7004.

My best,

Monte Dillow,

Vice President and General Manager, Aspen Surgical

Dear Valued Customer,

As noted in our prior communications, we at Aspen Surgical, are continuing to monitor the recovery effort in Puerto Rico following the recent hurricanes and are working to limit disruption in the supply of our Bard-Parker® products to our customers.

Our facility is running at full production, and we have added extra shifts to help fulfill customer orders as soon as possible. We are continuing to receive a steady stream of product from our facility in Puerto Rico, with significant improvement to our backorder and inventory position over the last several weeks.

As of May 23rd, the three codes below are deemed on back-order to our direct customers with zero inventory on hand in our main Aspen distribution center.  If you order your product through a distributor rather than direct from Aspen, we ask that you reach out to that distributor partner for the most up-to-date information on their inventory levels.  

  • 371156 Bard-Parker Safety Lock Carbon Rib Back Blade Size 22, Sterile
  • 371712 Bard-Parker Stainless Steel Blade Size 12b, Sterile
  • 373822 Bard-Parker Safety Scalpel Size 22, Non-Sterile

We are excited to report that our current back order list remains very small. In addition, only one code is on allocation, and we expect the all codes to be off allocation and in a healthy inventory position in approximately three weeks.

We will post regular updates on our Bard-Parker production and product to this site. If you need more information on affected codes or the status of specific orders, please reach out to your preferred distributor partner, your local Aspen sales representative, or customer service at 888-364-7004.

Aspen thanks you for your partnership!

We will post regular updates on our Bard-Parker production and product availability at this site. If you need more information on affected codes or the status of specific orders, please reach out to your preferred distributor partner, your local Aspen sales representative, or customer service at 888-364-7004.

Dear Valued Customer,

As noted in our prior communications, we at Aspen Surgical, are continuing to monitor the recovery effort in Puerto Rico following the recent hurricanes and are working to limit disruption in the supply of our Bard-Parker® products to our customers.

As of the last several months, our facility is running at full production, and we have added extra shifts to help fulfill customer orders as soon as possible. Also, electrical grid lines have been reconnected, and the site is being fully energized on the grid. We are continuing to receive a steady stream of product from our facility in Puerto Rico, with multiple shipments to Caledonia per week. The temporary back-order list below has been adjusted accordingly based on product received up to this point.

As of February 20th, the codes below are deemed on back-order to our direct customers with zero inventory on hand in our main Aspen distribution center.  If you order your product through a distributor rather than direct from Aspen, we ask that you reach out to that distributor partner for the most up-to-date information on their inventory levels. We are happy to report that our most popular styles of carbon and stainless steel #10, #11, #15 sterile blades remain off the backorder list. (Please note that items with an asterisk have been added this week).

  • 371112 Bard-Parker Carbon Rib-Back Blade Size 12, Sterile
  • 371122 Bard-Parker Carbon Rib-Back Blade Size 22, Sterile
  • 371150 Bard-Parker Safety Lock Carbon Rib-Back Blade Size 10, Sterile
  • 371212 Bard-Parker Stainless Steel Blade Size 12, Sterile*

  • 372620 Bard-Parker Safety Scalpel Size 20, Sterile*

  • 373915 Bard-Parker safety Scalpel Size 12, Sterile
  • 373920 Bard-Parker Safety Blade Size 20, Sterile
  • 374305 Bard-Parker Safety Blade Size 15c, Sterile

We apologize for any inconvenience the existing backorder may cause.  Upon request, we will provide a list of products that are not sold by Aspen Surgical but which you may find to be a clinically-acceptable substitute while your Bard-Parker product is on temporary back-order.

We will post regular updates on our Bard-Parker production and product availability at this site. If you need more information on affected codes or the status of specific orders, please reach out to your preferred distributor partner, your local Aspen sales representative, or customer service at 888-364-7004.

Aspen thanks you for your partnership and want you to know that we are focused on continuing to serve you, our valued customer, despite this temporary disruption.

Thank you!
