BPOC, a healthcare investor, has made a strategic growth investment in Networking Packaging Group LLC, a provider of consulting services to medical device and pharmaceutical companies.

Network Partners provides specialized expertise to help bring life-saving products to market for medical device and pharmaceutical companies. The firm has a 250 person team delivering packaging engineering, labeling, regulatory affairs, quality assurance and project management consulting services.

We look forward to supporting the company’s growth strategies and long-term vision through this strong partnership.”
