Xerimis Expands BD Team

Xerimis is expanding its Business Development group due to increasing opportunities worldwide. This uptick of interest in Xerimis is due in part to the opening of its purpose-built, 13,000-square-foot United Kingdom facility in 2016. This is the second location for the privately held, New Jersey-headquartered clinical packaging provider. Located thirty minutes west of Heathrow and within easy access of London, the MHRA-approved space is designed to receive, store, label, package and distribute clinical supplies worldwide. The facility holds WDA, MIA-IMP, MS and MIA licenses. Three QPs named on the MIA-IMP license provide services ranging from QP Declaration for CTA submission to QP certification of finished, packaged supplies.
