November 2017 Time Lapse

APAC / November 2017 5 NEWS , On the 9th Novem- ber, one of the glob- al leaders in pre- filled drug-delivery systems, Vetter an- nounced the official opening of a new branch office in South Korea. The new office in Songdo is lo- cated within the biologics cluster which is often referred to as a ‘sweet spot’ by the industry as it houses numerous prominent bi- opharmaceutical companies and service providers. Strengthening its global footprint in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region has been an ongoing goal for Vet- ter. The company established its APAC hub in Singapore in 2014, and subsequently formed a Japa- nese subsidiary by opening an of- fice in Tokyo in 2015. Although the pharmaceutical service provider had already been active in the South Korean market for years, the establishment of its own local branch office underlines the com- pany’s commitment to the Asia Pacific market, particularly South Korea. With the new footprint, Vetter will be better positioned to support its existing South Ko- rean business as well as that of new local and global customers, helping them to meet stringent development, manufacturing and packaging requirements of their injectable drugs. “Today is yet another milestone for our company. This new office will allow us to directly serve both local and global companies with South Korean market interests,” said Vetter Managing Director Pe- ter Soelkner. “We are certain that our market presence and activi- ties in this market will serve as an additional base and contribution for Vetter’s future global organic growth.” Vetter Expands its Footprint in Asia Pacific Region Vetter, one of the global leaders in prefilled drug-delivery systems, announced on the 9thNovember the official opening of a new branch office in South Korea.
