The new HQ is equipped with state-of-the-art, fully enclosed temperature controlled ambient and cold room storage facilities.

“The facility and location proved a perfect fit for our company,” said Mr. Parkar. “Its proximity to a significant number of global pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, including our current clients, made it particularly attractive. New Jersey’s excellent transportation network also enhances our ability to deliver products quickly and efficiently throughout the region and around the world.”
