Imperial expands European footprint with U.K. acquisition
Imperial, a clinical research support organization comprising DAC Patient Recruitment Services, ClinicaLingua Translation Services and Imperial Graphics, is adding Four Point Printing to its family of companies. Located in Shepperton in the U.K., Four Point has specialized in the production of printed clinical trial and regulatory materials since 1979.
“For more than a decade, Imperial has been supporting clinical research in the E.U. through its sales office and strategic partners,” said Steve Swanson, president of Imperial. “We are committed to expanding our production capabilities and global footprint. Four Point’s capabilities are complementary with those of Imperial and allow us to further support our clients and their E.U. sites. Four Point allows us to improve our E.U. delivery times and our competitiveness.
“Over the next several months, Imperial will be integrating systems and investing in infrastructure at Four Point,” Swanson said. “We will be expanding the capabilities in Four Point’s facilities to support both DAC Patient Recruitment Services and ClinicaLingua Translation Services. Four Point’s focus during this time will be servicing existing clients and successfully implementing changes related to the acquisition. Our clients are accustomed to a certain experience when working with any of our companies, and we want to ensure that will continue wherever they are interacting with us.”
