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.”
