U.K.-based global CRO ClinTec International has opened offices in China, Singapore and Thailand, consolidating its presence in the Asia Pacific region.
Over the next quarter, the company said strategic moves into South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia and Indonesia will also take place. The expansion has also been strengthened by the recent appointment of several regional CRAs, plus Mary Pan, director of Asia Pacific, who has over 12 years of international experience in clinical research.
ClinTec said while other CROs have tended to acquire local companies in Asia Pacific to expand their geographical presence, ClinTec has kept its strategy of organic growth and employing its own local staff members, guaranteeing the same ClinTec culture, values and international standards in the region from the start of its operations.
In the past two years, ClinTec has entered 25 new countries worldwide.
