CORPORATE PRESS RELEASE
NORGINE REJOINS THE UK PHARMACEUTICAL TRADE BODY ABPI
London. 16 February 2017, 10:00 AM GMT. Norgine B.V.‘s UK affiliate today announced that it has rejoined the UK pharmaceutical trade body, the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI).
In the UK Norgine employs around 770 people. Norgine employs around 400 people at its manufacturing and research site in Hengoed which makes it the largest pharma employer in Wales. At its Harefield office, Norgine employs around 370 people in UK sales and marketing, global and corporate functions.
Peter Martin, COO at Norgine said: “Norgine is committed to the UK and is welcoming the opportunity to work with the ABPI. The work of the ABPI is fundamental in ensuring that the interests of large and small pharmaceutical companies are well represented when leaving the EU and ultimately, to ensure that UK patients are not left behind when the rest of Europe are accessing new treatments.”
Norgine B.V. is also a member of EUCOPE, the European Confederation of Pharmaceutical Entrepreneurs and the UK Ethical Medicines Industry Group (EMIG).
In October 2008, Norgine resigned from the ABPI because it believed that it did not represent the interests of small specialist pharmaceutical companies.
