Sales Manager

Dialed in for quality control. 

SSR is ISO 22442-2 compliant and sources porcine tissues from three SQF-certified Johnsonville facilities (abattoirs) located in Wisconsin, Illinois, and Kansas. We understand the importance of highly-specific preparation in a controlled environment. We can utilize designated medical-material rooms at our abattoirs when there is a need for a controlled environment and specific preparation steps for porcine tissues. These rooms are staffed by Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) trained personnel who process, inspect, package, and ship porcine tissues according to the standard operating procedure (SOP) defined in partnership with our customers. 

A higher standard for success.

At SSR, good enough is never good enough. These five pillars form the foundation of our company and ensure the highest standard for our partners.

Animal Welfare

Consistent with the practices and values of Johnsonville LLC, we are committed to the well-being of our animals. Our moral and ethical obligation is to ensure our animals are treated humanely. We always strive to meet and exceed industry animal welfare and husbandry guidelines. We continuously improve equipment and facilities, educate our members in ethical treatment practices, and actively pursue new technology to further enhance our handling practices.


SSR stands for “Sustainable Swine Resources,” and we don’t take the responsibility of that name lightly. We stand by the principles of sustainability in the use of high-quality porcine materials. We strive to be the best stewards of our animals, using the entire animal to improve, prolong, and save human lives or feed and advance the health and well-being of other animals. We ensure the total utility of the animal by working in partnership with customers who utilize essential porcine materials and products for various industries.

We focus on lasting partnerships with our customers to address their needs and strive to be the global leader in supplying reliable porcine materials and products. Our consultative approach starts with understanding our customer’s needs and specific requirements. We work closely with our customers to design the best process to deliver high-quality, customized materials that consistently meet their requirements and standard operating procedures.


With a desire to move the world forward, our culture is based on exploration, experimentation, continuous learning, and discovery. We welcome critical feedback from our customers and research partners to continuously innovate and improve our practices and processes for delivering high-quality porcine tissues.


Above all else, we are committed to delivering the best products possible. We follow rigorous quality procedures that meet or exceed industry and regulatory standards.
