A PHARMACEUTICAL company is to create 54 new jobs in Flintshire in a £2.7m investment in a new headquarters and manufacturing facility.
Quay Pharmaceuticals says operations at the new site will include early stage research and development and clinical trials manufacturing for the global pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.
The company is quitting its present site at Bromborough, Wirral, which it says has reached capacity. The firm is expanding and moving operations to a new facility on Deeside Industrial Park, four times the size of its current premises, in a move supported by the Welsh Assembly Government that will also safeguard 30 jobs.
Chief executive Mike Rubinstein said the range of support offered by the WAG to small- and medium-sized businesses had made Wales an attractive proposition for Quay Pharma’s expansion.
He said: “The support from the Assembly Government is great for a small company and of particular help in the current economic climate.
“Not only does it provide advice and access to knowledge but also provides businesses with a high level of promotional and marketing support at overseas events.
“We are operating in a growing market and now have the opportunity to take advantage of this. Our new premises will enable us to take on larger sale projects and manage contracts through to the final stage.”
