New of­fice for grow­ing busi­ness


MAC­CLES­FIELD MP David Rut­ley was among the guests at the of­fi­cial open­ing of new of­fices for a con­sul­tancy busi­ness.

AMICULUM Lim­ited, based at Clarence Mill in Bolling­ton, is an in­de­pen­dent health­care com­mu­ni­ca­tions and learn­ing busi­ness, pro­vid­ing ser­vices and con­sul­tancy to phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal com­pa­nies, with clients in Europe, Asia and the US.

It was founded by doc­tors Richard All­corn and Jenny Putin, both from Bolling­ton, in 2001.

It now em­ploys a team of 120 pro­fes­sion­als in the UK, US, Sin­ga­pore and China.

Ap­prox­i­mately onethird of the global team is based in Bolling­ton.

Dr Putin, who is re­spon­si­ble for AMICULUM in Asia, said: “Our new of­fices pro­vide space for the ex­pan­sion of our Bolling­ton team which plays a vi­tal role in our global busi­ness”.

Dr All­corn added: “We now have ca­pac­ity to con­tinue to build teams in our growth ar­eas in­clud­ing health­care learn­ing, dig­i­tal ser­vices and a new agency which works ex­clu­sively on the devel­op­ment of new treat­ments for rare dis­eases”.

Mr Rut­ley con­grat­u­lated the AMICULUM team on its new premises and praised the grow­ing busi­ness.

He said: “Cre­at­ing and build­ing a global busi­ness like AMICULUM from a two-person start up is a great achieve­ment.

“En­tre­pre­neur­ial com­pa­nies such as AMICULUM make an im­por­tant con­tri­bu­tion to both the lo­cal econ­omy and the UK’s po­si­tion as a lead­ing cen­tre for the devel­op­ment of new medicines. The fact that they are plan­ning to ex­pand their team in Bolling­ton is a clear in­di­ca­tion of the ex­tent of phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal and sci­en­tific ex­per­tise in the Mac­cles­field area.”
