Prestwick, Pharma Plexus form strategic alliance
Prestwick Chemical, a chemical services company for the life sciences industry, has formed a strategic alliance with Pharma Plexus Holland, a provider of pharmaceutical optimization and development services. The two companies will work together on a significant lead optimization project recently won from a major pharmaceutical company.
With this new partnership, the two companies can offer enhanced multidisciplinary research services to life science companies worldwide. The two companies will be working together to provide lead optimization and library services, large-scale synthesis and expect to offer further drug discovery services in the future.
“Prestwick Chemical was looking at solutions to expand its capacity and ability to handle larger projects in the face of growing demand,” said Professor Thierry Langer, CEO of Prestwick Chemical. “The collaboration with Pharma Plexus Holland in Weesp near Amsterdam is a great opportunity to do just this. It also allows us to address the additional needs of our clients and prospects. In Weesp, we have found scientists and entrepreneurs whose culture for excellence is perfectly aligned with that of our own scientists and we are looking forward to a long and successful collaboration.”
