Growing a clinical trials business in Kent Science Park, Swale
NorthWise Services, with headquarters at Kent Science Park, in Swale was established in 2001, building on a strong foundation of very extensive experience by its directors in the pharmaceutical CRO and other industries.
The company offers all aspects of clinical trial support, especially those related to data handling. It operates within a network of consultants and strategic alliances with other companies to offer a wide range of services and products to clients. Services include full support in clinical trials and health economics.
NorthWise Services chose Kent Science Park in the Thames Gateway because of the opportunities it gave them to grow as well as the fantastic accessibility to Europe offered by Eurostar and the airports.
As Managing Director, Dr Philip North explains: “Having decided we wanted to start our own business in Kent, we knew we needed a secure site with flexibility to grow. We also needed to be accessible to clients. Kent Science Park provided us with the perfect solution. The north-west European markets are also important to our businesses, and as we have an office in Ghent, Belgium, Kent offers us crucial close links with the Eurostar services, channel ports and airports.”
