Craigavon, N.I., 22 March 2018 – Almac Group, the global contract pharmaceutical development and manufacturing organisation, has announced it has been awarded CMO Leadership Awards for the sixth consecutive year.
The CMO Leadership Awards recognises top outsourcing partners, determined by feedback from sponsor companies who outsource manufacturing.

Almac Pharma Services received three awards at the prestigious celebratory event held on 21 March in New York which recognised its capabilities, overall compatibility and outstanding quality at small pharma level.
