York, England, Mar. 28, 2017
– ACM Global Laboratories
, the largest independent central lab in the industry specializing in high-quality central laboratory testing and diagnostic lab services, today announced a grand opening event on April 6 that will celebrate the expansion of its European laboratory operations with a new, state-of-the-art facility in York, England. Guests, including the honorary York Sheriff and Sheriff’s Lady, will tour the 15,000 square-foot facility at 11:00 a.m. local time, followed by a ribbon-cutting ceremony and event reception.
Located at 36 Hospital Fields Road, Fulford, York, YO10 4DZ, the facility will be used to assemble and ship investigator collection kits to sites throughout Europe, including Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The new expansion comes at a time when kit volumes have increased significantly and ACM prepares for further expansion and growth in this area.
“We are excited to showcase our commitment to the region with this grand opening ribbon-cutting ceremony and look forward to offering guests an opportunity to meet with staff and view our new laboratory operations,” said Jerry Boxall, managing director, Europe and Asia at ACM. “The new site doubles our footprint in York and allows for further expansion and growth in the coming years.”
ACM announced its relocation to the expanded facility in response to growing client demand for its clinical trials testing services throughout the region. The new European hub is nearly twice the size of its previous facility in York, which opened in November 2012, and will serve as home to ACM’s expanding laboratory operations, as well as to its growing staff of data analysts, project managers and quality assurance specialists.
