DPS has opened a new office in Switzerland after business grows in the country

DPS Group, a global engineering, procurement, construction management and validation (EPCMV) firm serving high-tech process industries, has announced it is expanding its European operations with the establishment of a new office in Switzerland to serve the group's growing client base in the Swiss pharmaceutical and life sciences industries.

Martin Bannister, Managing Director of DPS's European Contract Services division, said that the group already has over 70 people on the ground in Switzerland serving blue-chip pharmaceutical companies.

To continue its growth in the region DPS has opened a new office in Zug. "Our business with the Swiss pharma sector has grown significantly in recent years and we felt that now is the right time to establish a base in Switzerland, which will allow us develop and expand our business in this market," Bannister said.

DPS will offer technical recruitment, staffing services, and full-service engineering to its Swiss clients. "Working as a trusted partner and being fully licensed by SECO to perform labor leasing of contract staff, we can provide highly skilled world class talent to our clients across Switzerland," Bannister added.

Peter Booman, Director of DPS's Contract Services Switzerland operation added: "Contract Services has provided a bespoke service delivering sector-specific talent to high-tech industries across Europe for the past 20 years."

The Switzerland opening is only the latest step in expanding DPS's European operations and further expansion is planned, into other European countries where DPS currently does not have a physical presence.
