Pharmatech Associates, a California-based consulting firm, has launched a new subsidiary headquartered in Doha, Qatar, that will offer global pharmaceutical companies a wide range of consulting services.
The new operation will offer single-source platforms for clients and investors to help produce next-generation pharmaceutical facilities that can be designed, constructed and operated globally, the company said.
The new subsidiary has been dubbed Pharmatech Associates International Contracting and Services (PAICS).
“Neither the high costs of construction nor lack of local manufacturing expertise should prohibit opportunities for growth and expansion,” Bikash Chatterjee, Pharmatech’s president and chief science officer, said in a statement. “We are extending the Pharmatech brand … to create new, local facilities that integrate product and process development, compliance, regulatory affairs and validation from drug design to commercialization.”
Earlier this year, Pharmatech expanded its executive management team with the promotion of Michaela Mueller as its CFO and corporate secretary. Prior to that, Mueller served as CFO and VP of human resources.
