I had the pleasure of utilizing ValSource to commission and qualify a multi-million dollar clinical manufacturing facility. ValSource provided resources that integrated seamlessly into our corporate culture and became an integral part of the project team. Leveraging ValSource’s technical knowledge and industry experience allowed the project team to enhance the quality of the work and deliver it ahead of schedule. We were able to establish a true team environment with everyone aligned toward common goals. ValSource was willing to work with us on all aspects of the project including feasibility assessments, budgeting, scope definition, scheduling, resource loading and executing work.
The flexibility ValSource provided allowed the project team to adapt to scope and schedule changes along the course of the project. Ultimately the ValSource team delivered project objectives ahead of time and within budget. ValSource is the industry standard for validation services and I wouldn’t hesitate to utilize them again on my next project.

I appreciate how flexible “our ValSource professional” is and his ability to adapt to the ever-changing priorities at Regeneron. His quality of work and attention to detail is something that should be recognized. He has very much become a ‘go to’ resource here.
It’s great to have the AstraZeneca ValSource staff continuing to support our operations. Ricardo Rivera and Kevin Williams are valuable contributors to updates around computer validation and periodic system reviews, along with validation maintenance. Adam Yacoub is a significant contributor with extraordinary effort around cleaning validation, validation maintenance, continuous process validation and SOP reviews and revisions.

I would like to thank you for your leadership and dedicated hard work qualifying the projects. As an integral member of the core team, your organization, subject matter expertise, and experience contributed to the successful, on-time handover of the facilities for production.
The capital projects were highly complex and schedule-critical in an existing facility with unknowns discovered along the way. Thanks for the real-time solutions and collaborating with the construction team.
Please extend my appreciation to your team in the field.
Looking forward to working together on future projects.
Associate Director, Engineering
Final analysis, I am a very satisfied customer, I have and will continue to recommend Val Source and you will be my first call for additional validation work and activities if and when they arise.

The truest artists are the ones who make it look easy. All of these gentlemen are true artists at their trade, and my hat is off to them. It was a distinct pleasure to work at their side, and I’ll look forward to the next opportunity to do so.
I had the privilege to work with Jeffrey Horne on the Suite 1 projects at Genzyme. Mr. Horne was one of the most knowledgable, discipline, dedicated and detailed oriented individual that I have worked with. There wasn’t a situation that was presented that Jeff couldn’t offer great insight. He can work in a very complex environment and have excellent analytical and reasoning skills and comes up with strategic and efficient solutions for any issues. He consistently was a key player to the project challenges, and work with the project team to solve them and move forward to meet aggressive schedules. He is always motivated and maintains a great attitude. I would not hesitate to recommend Jeff for any position that he is interested in.

Steve (Stern) did a fantastic job on the…Filler SIP and Tunnel Temp Map studies. Thanks to his help we were able to complete both projects on time without any major issues occurring. If any future projects come up, I will definitely be sure to recommend ValSource again.
Contractors cannot receive “own it awards,” so I just wanted to let you know that Mike Kelley has been really doing a great job with the changeover activities. He has driven a lot of the changeover activities and is pretty much solely responsible for turning around table 3’s and getting them reviewed. That’s owning it, if you ask me! Nicely done Mike!

I have been in this industry for 20 years in various roles with several companies, and I can say without a doubt that John Sorrentino is one of the most productive individuals I know. He works hard, and his work is of top quality. Recently I was assigned a periodic review of one of our engineering drawings. Without my input, John took it upon himself to walk down to the area with the drawing, produce needed redlines, and provide changes and reasons for the drawing updates. In another case, I had some valves that urgently needed tagging for use in our production areas. Once I had the tags made, John promptly picked them up and coordinated the tagging of the valves. John’s attention to detail is outstanding as well.
Thank you very much, ValSource, for providing John. We could not ask for a better individual to fill the role he has in our department.

“This was a very focused effort that was championed by Bob Taylor. His effort has assured a safe system was provided and subsequently set up for continued safe operations. This also provided our company with a great learning opportunity. His effort to continually champion all details of the project, understanding of issues, communicating appropriate requirements and assuring proper systems/ methods/ processes were implemented has a direct relation to the success of the project.”

It is at moments like this that we know we as a team did our jobs to reach one of the goals of this project under our responsibilities. I am very grateful for your efforts and overcoming all the hardships that came our way. Today we can breathe easily knowing that all your hard work has paid off.
Thank you to Derek Torre and all the ValSource members who participated in all the related activities to support the warehouse. Thanks also for the continued support during the quarterly and seasonal studies. It was your teamwork that provided the way to fulfill the requirements to have all the areas qualified and ready to initiate GMP operations.
It was a privilege to have led this team.
