Who We Are

The New Jersey Life Sciences Vendors Alliance (NJLSVA) is a coalition of businesses, individuals and academia who provide goods and services to New Jersey’s life sciences companies.

The NJLSVA was founded to educate suppliers on trends in industry procurement and public policy that affects the life sciences industry.

Dear New Jersey Life Sciences Vendor:

As a supplier to New Jersey life sciences companies, you are a member of the state’s premier industry and play a vital role in supporting the industry’s mission to advance global health. As a member of New Jersey’s life sciences vendor community, you also play a key role in sustaining and expanding an industry that is essential to the growth of New Jersey ’s economy.

With its unparalleled cluster of biopharmaceutical and medical technology companies, New Jersey is known as the “medicine chest of the world.”

During the past century or more, a sophisticated and comprehensive network of specialized life sciences industry vendors has developed to support this critical sector of our state’s economy. This network is a major key to the state’s ability to draw new biopharmaceutical and medical technology companies to our state and for those who are already here to comfortably expand.

New Jersey’s biopharmaceutical and medical technology companies generate more than $104.7 billion in annual economic activity in New Jersey, including:

  • Awarding more than $6.2 billion per year in contracts for goods and services to local businesses in this state and
  • Supporting more than 440,000 jobs, directly and indirectly, in the New Jersey.

To strengthen the relationship between New Jersey’s biopharmaceutical and medical technology companies and New Jersey’s vendor community, we created the New Jersey Life Sciences Vendors Alliance (NJLSVA) to bring together those who share a common interest in advancing and protecting this critical segment of our state’s economy.

More than 600 of your fellow vendors have already joined the NJLSVA, and we invite you join the alliance as well. Membership is free and benefits include:

  • Invitations to attend meetings on the latest trends in industry procurement.
  • Opportunities to network with industry executives and fellow vendors.
  • Private meetings with members of Congress and State Legislature.
  • Updates on issues impacting the life sciences industry.

I hope you will take this opportunity to join the New Jersey ’s community of life sciences vendors.
