Bilcare GCS Opens New Global U.S. Headquarters

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - July 31, 2008) - Bilcare Global Clinical Supplies, a leading single-source provider of clinical trial services, announced that it has opened its new global U.S. headquarters in San Francisco. The headquarters, which will be led by CEO Vito Mangiardi, operates as the company's corporate hub to drive growth in Bilcare's American, European, and Asian regions.

"This year has been one of substantial growth in every area of our global business, from staffing and facilities to equipment and services," said Mangiardi. "While our U.S., India, and Wales-based facilities manage the increased demand for research and packaging services, our headquarters will dedicate itself to furthering global integration and growing the company as a full-service solutions provider that can take customers from research and development, to Phase I and II trials, and through longer-term Phase III trials."

The opening of Bilcare GCS' global headquarters marks the latest development in the company's significant growth. During its 2007-2008 fiscal year, Bilcare GCS nearly doubled its global workforce, including significant additions to its executive team; completed a US$2.3 million capital investment program in the U.S.; expanded its facility in Rajgurunagar, near Pune, India; plans US$21 million towards a new clinical supplies facility in South Wales; and made significant global investments in technology, project management, and quality standards to help drive customer satisfaction and success. Other investments include new integrated business processes that span the entire clinical supply chain and cutting-edge technology solutions including interactive voice response/interactive web response (IVR/IWR) services.

"Bilcare has built its reputation on providing customers with the highest-quality clinical supplies and research services, delivered on time, every time," said Mangiardi. "Our new headquarters will allow us to take our services to the next level while continuing to provide the quality and attention that customers expect and deserve."
