Bilcare Global Clinical Supplies has opened its new global U.S. headquarters in San Francisco, CA. The headquarters, which will be led by chief executive officer Vito Mangiardi, operates as the company's corporate hub to drive growth in Bilcare's American, European, and Asian regions.
"This year has been one of substantial growth in every area of our global business, from staffing and facilities to equipment and services," said Mr. Mangiardi. "While our U.S., India, and Wales-based facilities manage the increased demand for research and packaging services, our headquarters will dedicate itself to furthering global integration and growing the company as a full-service solutions provider that can take customers from research and development, to Phase I and II trials, and through longer-term Phase III trials."
Bilcare GCS nearly doubled its global workforce during the 2007-2008 fiscal year, and also completed a $2.3 million capital investment program in the U.S., expanded its facility in Rajgurunagar, near Pune, India, and made plans for a new clinical supplies facility in South Wales during that period.
