Dr. Stephan Kutzer, CEO, President and Chairman of Alcami Corporation, sits down with the Triangle Business Journal to discuss the transition of Alcami's global headquarters to Research Triangle Park (RTP).
From a business strategy perspective, why did Alcami decide to move its planned headquarters expansion from Wilmington to Durham?
Our Wilmington operation is an instrumental part of our service offering. Over the last three years, we have invested heavily in new laboratory and manufacturing capacities, and the site enjoys an excellent reputation with the regulatory authorities and our clients. As we continue to grow and expand into new technology platforms, for example HPAPI (highly potent active pharmaceutical ingredients), controlled substances and biologics, we learned that this expansion has to happen in a pharmaceutical hub.
