Pharmatest Services Ltd opens US sales office in Cambridge, MA

[Updated March 21, 2013] Turku, Finland-based Pharmatest Services Ltd (Pharmatest) has opened a new US sales office in Cambridge, MA near Boston. The new office provides an excellent opportunity for Pharmatest to contact and serve customers, with a large number of potential customers located in the Boston area.

Pharmatest offers clinically predictive preclinical efficacy services for the pharmaceutical industry for testing their drug candidates in the fields of oncology and skeletal diseases. Cambridge, MA is one of the central locations of the pharmaceutical industry in America. The Pharmatest sales office is located in the Cambridge Innovation Center, which is centrally located amongst a large number of potential customers.

Despite the fact that Pharmatest has not had any direct US sales activities before, the company has already a wide customer base in the US. With the new sales office and increased US sales and marketing efforts Pharmatest expects to rapidly grow the number of US customers and US sales figures.

In combination with the opening of the sales office Pharmatest hired Andrew Heiniluoma as the US sales representative with responsibility for the Cambridge office. Andrew says: “I am very excited for the opportunity to work for Pharmatest. Cambridge is a perfect site for a US sales office, and the Boston area is unique in the US in terms of the presence of the pharma industry, providing an outstanding opportunity for attracting new customers for Pharmatest.”

Jussi Halleen, CEO of Pharmatest comments: “USA has the biggest market potential for our services and we now have a clear strategy to focus on increasing our US market share. We are very happy to have Andy on board in Cambridge, which allows us to get closer to our customers. I am convinced that this will boost our US revenues in the coming years.”
