Quintiles has opened the Quintiles Greater China Regional Headquarters 17 years after Quintiles first opened an office in Shanghai with 20 employees across Greater China. Quintiles’ 43,000 square feet headquarters in Shanghai’s Feng Lin Science Park now has almost 300 employees and is designed to host 450.
Vice District Mayor Wang Hongzhou of Xihui District, Shanghai, said, “The Feng Lin Science Park is the centerpiece of our efforts to bring together academic and industry leaders in a central location where innovation and collaboration can thrive. We look forward to our continued partnership with Quintiles as we strive to integrate science, technology and healthcare to save lives and alleviate suffering.”
Ling Zhen, Quintiles general manager of Greater China, said, “Many of Greater China’s home-grown biopharma companies are looking to expand globally. Our investment is designed to help them develop their innovative pipelines with global market access in mind, opening the large markets of Japan, U.S. and Europe to their products. At the same time we’re increasing our capabilities to help multinational companies expand in Greater China.”
Quintiles Greater China has employees in almost 30 cities and offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Dalian, Hong Kong and Taipei.
