Almac Clinical Technologies Expands Yardley, PA Headquarters
January 7, 2009
Almac Clinical Technologies announced today that it has added 6,000 square feet of space at its Yardley, Pennsylvania USA headquarters to support the company’s continued growth. The decision to expand the headquarters is part of the company’s strategy to provide an environment that spurs innovation, high quality project management, and customer service excellence.
President Jim Murphy comments on one of the reasons for the expansion:
“Almac Clinical Technologies has experienced consistent growth the past few years, as several pharmaceutical and biotech companies have joined the ranks of our client base. The major overhaul of our technology platform from 2005-2007 has given us an edge over our competitors because our phone and web systems are truly integrated and our unique system architecture allows clients tremendous flexibility in support of their evolving technological standards and requirements. Our strong technology and unrivalled track record for service quality have been key drivers of Almac’s high client satisfaction ratings and ultimately our consistent growth”.
Karen Borda, Vice President of Production IT states that the expansion offers Almac Clinical Technologies the opportunity to build upon its strategy of creating synergistic teams that focus on high quality project management, technological innovation, and customer service excellence.
“The addition of 6,000 square feet of new space offers Almac the opportunity to continue creating a work environment in which system developers, testers, project managers, R&D personnel, project support staff, and senior management can freely interact with each other and clients in an ideal setting. Our new space allows us to continue to foster a workplace in which face to face interaction between team members enhances training, mentoring, and information-sharing. Our focus is on delivering the highest quality systems and project management in the industry and this new space helps us achieve that goal.”
Almac completed the expansion and reorganization of its Yardley, PA offices in the week between Christmas and New Years, and will be offering its clients tours of the new expanded facilities during the next few months. This increase should accommodate growth until Almac Clinical Technologies moves into its new Headquarters based in Lansdale (PA) in 2010.
