Pharmatest Services Expands into the US Market

Pharmatest Services Ltd, the contract research organisation specialising in clinically predictive preclinical efficacy services, is delighted to announce that it has opened a sales office in the US. Based in Cambridge, MA near Boston, the new office is perfectly situated to meet the demands of existing clients and also reach the substantial number of potential clients located in the Boston area.

Offering the pharmaceutical industry clinically predictive preclinical efficacy services for testing drug candidates specifically for oncology and skeletal diseases, Pharmatest selected the Cambridge Innovation Center as its US base, as not only does the area serve as a hotspot for the US pharmaceutical industry but it sits amongst a large number of the company’s targeted customers.

Already serving a wide customer base in the US, Pharmatest is very excited at the prospects a dedicated sales office can offer. The company is increasing its marketing efforts and, in turn, expects to see rapid growth in terms of the number of customers and sales figures.

Taking responsibility for the Cambridge office is newly hired Andrew Heiniluoma. Speaking of the appointment, Andrew stated “I am very excited for the opportunity to work for Pharmatest. Cambridge is a perfect site for a US sales office, and the Boston area is unique in the US in terms of the presence of the pharma industry, providing an outstanding opportunity for attracting new customers for Pharmatest.”

Jussi Halleen, CEO of Pharmatest comments: “USA has the biggest market potential for our services and we now have a clear strategy to focus on increasing our US market share. We are very happy to have Andy on board in Cambridge, which allows us to get closer to our customers. I am convinced that this will boost our US revenues in the coming years.”
