Clinigen Group, a global specialist pharmaceutical products and services business based in the UK, has opened a new £350,000 Global Operations Centre in Stretton, near Burton-on-Trent Staffordshire.

Peter George, chief executive of Clinigen, said: ‘We are continuing to expand and have ambitious plans for the future. It is essential that we have the right resource and facilities to service our clients, both now, and as we continue to develop.’

The firm says the new 8,000ft2 warehousing and distribution facilities will enable it to stock and distribute pharmaceutical products to its global customer base in a fast and efficient manner.

The new Operations Centre combined with the company's headquarters in Burton, have created more than 30 new jobs in recent months. In total the firm employs 300 staff.

Clinigen Group was formed in 2010 by the merger of three companies: Clinigen CTS (formerly Keats Healthcare) and Clinigen GAP, which make up Clinigen's services division, and Clinigen Healthcare, the Group's products business.

The Group operates across the clinical lifecycle of a drug, from Phase 1 clinical trials to the end of patent and beyond.
