My Best Read of 2022

My best read of 2002 has been Homecoming by Rana Foroohar.

She is a first-generation immigrant and a columnist for the Financial Times

She outlines a swing from neo-liberal worship of shareholder value being the only relevant metric for economic success to a rebalancing to stakeholder capitalism approach.

Her narrative also emphasizes the need for democracies to produce a greater sharing of economic success and the need for America to retain its international competitiveness, especially in light of the rise of China.

It was the best book I read in 2022.

Happy New Year!

We look forward to serving all our clients in 2022!

Congratulations to Sneha Durairaj

One of the joys of my professional life has to witness the success of the many people that have worked at Broydrick and Associates over the past 40 years. Let me share an example I learned yesterday–Sneha Durairaj was an intern from September 2018 to May of 2019. It was clear to me from the get go that she was very smart and I encouraged her to think big about herself including becoming a lawyer.

Since then she has received a degree and will receive a Masters in Finance this May from Bentley in Boston as well as working as a corporate paralegal. She wrote me a kind note to tell me that she has been accepted at Harvard Law school for this Fall!

Like many other of our she is on the road to success and Cindi and I couldn’t be happier. Congratulations Sneha!

Nursing Home Money Not Yet Released

Supermax Healthcare Investigates Manufacturing Latex Gloves in the United States

Based in Malaysia, Supermax is a leading producer of latex gloves for the international medical community. Producing approximately 24 billion gloves annually, Supermax produces 12% of the world’s rubber gloves every year. With over 10 manufacturing plants in Malaysia, eight distribution centers, and nearly 1,200 contractors Supermax’s gloves have been used in hundreds of countries and by millions of medical professionals.

After demand drastically increased during the COVID-19 pandemic, Supermax worked around the clock to supply hundreds of countries with vital personal protective equipment. To support the fight against COVID-19 in Malaysia, Supermax also pledged RM75 million (~$18 million US) to the Malaysian government’s COVID-19 fund.

Broydrick & Associates looks forward to assisting Supermax in their efforts to explore manufacturing options in the United States.

We thank Representative Moore in her support throughout the appropriations process and look forward to assisting MMSD further.

Exela Pharma Services CEO Testifies Before House Subcommittee

Broydrick and Associates congratulates Dr. Phanesh Koneru, Founder and CEO of Exela Pharma Services, for his testimony before the House Agriculture Subcommittee on Commodity Exchanges, Energy, and Credit on Tuesday, June 15th. Dr. Koneru emphasized the significance of the United States Department of Agriculture’s guaranteed loan programs in growing Exela from a nascent startup to a company employing nearly 400 people at salaries well over Caldwell County’s average yearly wage.

Dr. Koneru encouraged the Subcommittee to expand the scope of federal guaranteed loans so that Exela and other businesses investing in rural communities can grow, revitalizing the economic health of neglected rural communities. He further recommended that Congress fund a new USDA scholarship program, so that high school and college graduates are incentivized to work, start families, and grow the economies of rural American communities.

Dr. Koneru’s testimony follows 13 years of contributing to Lenoir and Caldwell County, and will hopefully lead to even greater contributions in the near future.

Congratulations to Sen. Tammy Baldwin

Wishing everyone wellness. Let’s celebrate! 

Payments to Cranberry Growers

When the USDA announced a measure to assist farmers negatively impacted by retaliatory tariffs on US agriculture, Broydrick & Associates worked to ensure the Cranberry Growers Coalition was included in the commodities. The USDA authorized $16 billion in relief programs through the Market Facilitation Program, Food Purchase and Distribution Program, and the Agricultural Trade Promotion Program.

The tariffs ranged from 10% on juice cocktails from Canada up to 55% on frozen cranberry imports to China—posing a significant threat to the health of the Cranberry industry. Because of the advocacy work on behalf of Cranberry Growers, the producers were found to be eligible through the Market Facilitation Program. The inclusion ensured that direct payments would go to growers to help the industry survive despite the retaliatory tariffs.

Blueberries Included in the USDA’s Coronavirus Food Assistance Program

The USDA launched the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP) to assist US farmers impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. This program offers direct relief to producers facing additional marketing and operational costs to stay afloat during the pandemic. Because of the extra precautions and logistics required to ensure the safety of workers and continuation of the food chain, many in the agricultural industry were facing significant market chain disruptions and costs, including blueberry growers.

The Munger Farms, a long-time client of Broydrick & Associates, sought our assistance to request the addition of blueberries in the CFAP. Initially blueberries were not listed as an eligible specialty crop, but to qualify for CFAP payments, the fruit—representing a significant portion of Munger Farm’s business—must be included in the specialty crop list. Broydrick & Associates got to work and on July 9, 2020, the USDA announced they would include an additional 40 specialty crops in the list, including blueberries.

Resolution of Dispute with Customs & Border Protection on the Import of Gloves in Malaysia

During the COVID-19 crisis, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection stopped the import of surgical gloves from many of the predominant manufacturers in Malaysia. This detention order included gloves that were in transit to a logistics manufacturing client of Broydrick & Associates.

Broydrick & Associates worked with the Customs and Boarder Protection contacts, as well as our contacts in the Malaysian rubber industry to resolve the dispute as it pertained to our client and release the PPE. This work ensured that the protective gloves could be used by our client’s employees as well as distributed to their customer base, as needed during the pandemic.

California’s Board of Pharmacy Allows Pharmaceutical Shipments for COVID-19 Patients

During the COVID-19 crisis, logistical hurdles were faced by patients in California who required certain regulated medications. Due to shipping regulations in place from the California Board of Pharmacy, some medications were blocked and inaccessible, including critical medications manufactured by a Broydrick & Associates’ pharmaceutical client.

Broydrick & Associates worked with the California Board of Pharmacy to ensure they issued a temporary order to allow for the shipments during this unprecedented circumstance. Our work helped to ensure highly compromised COVID-19 patients and other patients could receive the critical drugs they needed.

Work with the IRS for a 48-Hour Turnaround on a Permit (Instead of 30 Days)

A long-term client of Broydrick & Associates contacted us for emergency assistance with a permit issuance from the IRS. A name discrepancy on the IRS website had blocked the issuance of a crucial permit the client required. The normal turnaround time for a permit is 30 days, but in this case, our client needed an immediate issuance.

Bill Broydrick got to work, cutting through red tape at the IRS and reaching out to contacts to resolve the discrepancy and secure the issuance of the permit. Within 48-hours, we were able to secure the needed permit for our client, so they could move forward with their business.

Securing & Increasing Funding for the Establishment of the Cranberry Research Station

Wisconsin is a world leader in cranberry production, with 250 growers who produce two-thirds of the cranberry crop in the United States (550 million pounds per year). Since the cranberry industry is highly impacted by weather and the economy, the research station allows researchers, growers, and USDA experts to monitor and develop a resilient crop.

Broydrick & Associates has worked with the Wisconsin State Cranberry Growers for decades, including on this project. The research station required grant work to secure multiple funding assistance increases for the growers. Broydrick delivered with the assistance, helping the Wisconsin Cranberry State Growers establish a new research station in Black River Falls. This station will provide data to keep the industry healthy for years to come.
