Brecon Pharmaceuticals has followed its strong 2009 performance with a record performance in 2010 – the company’s 30th anniversary – as clients in the global pharmaceutical and healthcare industries recognise the value and buy into the company’s portfolio of commercial packaging and clinical trials services.
Recent months have seen Brecon secure several major projects; including the launch of new over-the-counter and prescription drugs, packaging a range of fluid-filled lenses and managing both packaging and logistics for a range of animal health products. In the clinical supplies arena, Brecon has successfully bid for a number of new contracts covering packing of Phase II and III trials supplies, with associated storage and distribution services.
Brecon also reports growth in demand for Late Stage Customisation (LSC) solutions and increased call on facilities for storage of controlled drugs, requirements that are being satisfied by continuing investment in facilities and technology at the company’s Hay-on-Wye site.
Brecon business development director Steve Kemp says the sales success “is a reward for our dedication to delivering the most up to date and innovative range of technologies and services so that we can tailor our offering to clients’ needs – a policy the company has maintained for every one of its 30 years. It also underlines our commitment to supporting clients’ products throughout their life cycle, from early clinical trials to full commercialisation. This frees up pharmaceutical companies to focus on their core competencies of drug development and manufacture, while outsourcing key support functions such as clinical supply, analytical and regulatory services, commercial packaging, and storage and distribution.”
“It’s a strategy that’s more relevant than ever in the prevailing economic climate – but it does depend on service partners that are up to the task. Here at Brecon we aim to excel on every front: training, technology facilities and customer service.”
Kemp adds that as a member of US healthcare services specialist AmerisourceBergen Corporation, Brecon works closely with sister companies to offer co-ordinated global solutions that comply with EU, US and other international legislatures.
