Connexion was recently honored during an awards ceremony at the AD’s annual North American meeting. AD’s theme for this event was: OWN IT. The award we accepted was the “Giving Back” award.

The success of our Science Connexion program – and the schools and students that benefit from it, is largely due to the efficiency and dedication of our Operations and Logistics teams. Working behind the scenes, they’re making good things happen for our customers and the communities in which we live.
