Marken continues their expansion of services in Latin America, by augmenting their new purpose-built Buenos Aires facility.
“The expansion of our services in Latin America enables our clients to better recruit in treatment naive populations and work with previously unreachable investigator sites, assuring quality and regulatory documentation through the entire supply chain.” said Wes Wheeler, Marken’s chief executive officer.
Marken is implementing their stated plan to build an advanced, fit for purpose clinical distribution network to serve the pharmaceutical community. The new Argentina depot builds on Marken’s current Latin America business which serves over 1200 clinical research investigator sites in the region, and enables the company to grow from its current industry-leading life sciences logistics platform. Marken is developing further depot facilities in Europe, Asia and the Americas.
The Argentina depot joins Marken’s already operational Mexico and Singapore depots offering the full range of temperature controlled storage capabilities. Each of Marken’s depots provides drug and equipment distribution solutions. Additionally the network manages specimen kit distribution, interim specimen storage and management.
