Five new depots added in the Asia Pacific region
Almac’s Clinical Services business unit, a leading provider of contract services to the clinical trial supply industry, has increased its presence in the Asia Pacific region by adding five new depots located in Japan, Thailand, Hong Kong and Taiwan to its extensive global depot network.
These latest developments in the Asian market enable Almac to provide customers with even more flexibility in their supply chain solution for their specific country clinical trial requirements. The number of depots within the network is now 36 with a further five planned for 2012.
Almac’s Global Depot Network is managed by dedicated depot management teams who serve as the central contact point for the network and also perform regular visits to the depots which are fully audited and GMP compliant. In line with continuous depot expansion the resources within the Depot Management Team have also increased over the past six months. There are now 15 members of staff who are located in the UK, US and Brazil and are dedicated to managing protocols across the depot network.
‘The latest depots are a very welcome addition to our network and have been strategically positioned in locations worldwide to ensure we can supply emerging markets with a consistent high level of service,’ said Mark Woolf, global depot manager for Almac’s Clinical Services business unit.
