A spokesperson told us the expansion, which adds 4327 sq. ft. to the contract research organisation’s (CRO) site, is attracting new clients.
“Global pharma are very interested in the functional outsourcing/FSP [functional service provision] capabilities which Clintec has, and the expanded Glasgow office supports these clients in analytics, functional resourcing, client relations and quality assurance.”
“We are getting more and more requests from small/medium sized biotech companies mainly from the US who are tapping into our capabilities and expertise especially in the oncology and rare diseases area,” said the spokesperson.
The Clintec spokesperson told us the expansion will create new jobs with varying skill requirements.
“Additional jobs are being created in most areas of our business in the Glasgow HQ including our clinical research functions such as Clinical Operations and Biometrics, alongside corporate functions including client relations and business development.”
“We are creating opportunities for experienced individuals as well as trainees, and are committed to developing the next generation of talent within clinical research,” said the spokesperson.
UK / US relationship
Clintec said the expanded headquarters will manage operations across Europe, and emerging territories including Turkey, the Middle East and Africa, as well in the US, where is it growing its client base.
“We have embarked on a long-term vision to develop a leading capability in North America.”
“There are strong business links between the UK and USA, and it has been a natural fit to fully support the US operation from the Glasgow HQ,” said the spokesperson.
