Almac Pharma Services To Create 200 Loughborough Jobs

Medical firm Almac Pharma Services is to create 200 jobs in Loughborough after passing a Government regulatory inspection to make new drugs.

The pharmaceutical company, which has its research facilities in Loughborough’s Charnwood Campus, has been granted a licence by the UK Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) to make certain kinds of medicines in the country.

Commenting on the obtaining the licence, managing director of Almac Pharma Services, Graeme McBurney, said: “This is a great achievement and positive reflection of both the investment Almac has made in the site and of our staff operating the facilities. We are looking forward to beginning work for our clients at these world class facilities and already have committed projects which will commence in the coming months.”

Charnwood Campus’ commercial & marketing director, Gosia Khrais, said: “I am thrilled with the outcome of Almac’s MHRA inspection. It is yet another milestone in the development of our science and business park that should give anyone wishing to relocate their operations to Charnwood Campus confidence in the site, its staff and infrastructure.”

“We are proud to initiate activities that benefit our town and its residents, and will continue to consolidate our efforts to help create jobs, business opportunities and bring investment into Loughborough,” added Ms Khrais.

Local MP Nicky Morgan welcomed the news, saying: “I am delighted to hear that Almac Group have successfully passed its inspection by the UK Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency.”

“While the formal title of the accreditation is something of a tongue twister, what it means in reality is that Almac can expand its Loughborough base to include the manufacture of medicines bringing, in time, 200 highly-skilled scientific jobs to our area and economy,” added Ms Morgan.
