The new site will be an integrated part of the global business, including research and development for CRF Health’s product lines, and expanded customer service capabilities.
The Romania operation has already brought considerable opportunities to the region with the office employing a current staff of forty, which is expected to grow to more than a hundred by the end of 2017.
