High Force Research sets sights on the USA

Chemical research and development company, High Force Research is looking at entering North American markets as part of the next stage of its development.

High Force Research, which supports medical and scientific research advances, has seen significant business growth both in the UK and further afield.

The firm recently increased its headcount to 34 employees and doubled its presence at the Wilton Centre, Redcar, where it opened a new laboratory.

After having successfully joined a Department for International Trade (DIT) Life Sciences Trade Mission to Boston earlier this year, it is now looking at entering North American markets.

Members of High Force Research’s business development will be returning to North America later this month for meetings with renowned academic institutions and leading private sector firms based in the east coast’s successful pharma, biotech, medical device and digital health sectors.

Head of business development, Stella James, said: “The DIT Life Sciences Trade Mission to Boston earlier this year was a great opportunity to extend our network in the US further. From our base in the North of England, we are increasingly working with clients from around the globe and as a major hub of America’s Life Science sector, Boston is an important market for us.

“The trip provided opportunities to develop a number of valuable relationships with private sector companies as well as major research institutions and we’re looking forward to returning to Boston and New Jersey in the coming weeks to explore these opportunities further and also pursue a number new opportunities.”
