ClinTech Relocates To Scotland

Tuesday, December 11, 2007 06:21 AM

ClinTec International, a CRO based in the UK, is moving it global headquarters to Scotland from its current offices in Windsor. The office will be in Glasgow, Scotland.

The headquarters will house all of the company’s corporate functions including sales, human resources, IT, finance and marketing as well as clinical operations. The move is being assisted by a $2.7 million Regional Selective Assistance Grant from the Scottish Enterprise—an economic development agency funded by the Scottish government.

ClinTec has pledged to create 240 new jobs over the next three years. The company stated one of the incentives to relocate to the region is its highly skilled talent pool available due to the many universities and academic research institutes. More than a dozen CROs maintain operations in Scotland, including Quintiles, Aptuit, Charles River Laboratories and BioReliance.

In August, PPD obtained a $9.1 million RSA grant to the construction of a 34,000-square-foot office in Lanarkshire, Scotland to support its late-stage services.
