Global IT Company Aequor Technologies Opens Office in Basel, Switzerland
To Better Service Their International Life Sciences and Pharmaceutical Clients.
Piscataway, New Jersey, November 9, 2015: Aequor Technologies, a global IT consulting and solutions company with headquarters in New Jersey, USA, is pleased to announce the opening of their new office in the city of Basel, Switzerland.
The goal of opening a new office in Basel is to expand their footprint and service offerings in Europe to meet the needs of their growing clientele in the global life sciences and pharmaceutical corporations. Aequor also provides IT services across the geographic regions in the Americas, Europe, Middle East & Africa; and Asia-Pacific.
Aequor expects their new office to be up and running by the end of 2015. Aequor will hire locally, starting with a small staff of consultants, and with growth plans to expand its employee count to approximately 100 within a year.
Kamal Virdi, CEO and Chairman of Aequor, is excited about the move: “Finding the most talented people for our new office and being in a life sciences cluster were key for us, when we were looking at the different regions and cantons on our short list. In Basel we found just that: A high-quality talent pool and a true life sciences hub. In addition, Basel has a top-notch infrastructure in place with the EuroAirport, allowing for convenient travel across Europe. We are thrilled about getting started in Basel and would like to thank the team at BaselArea for their great support during the entire site-selection process.”
The new Basel office is strategically located in close proximity to Aequor’s current and future client base in the life sciences and pharmaceutical industries. Basel has one of the highest densities of life sciences companies in Europe, with global heavyweights like Roche, Syngenta, Lonza and Novartis in town. This thriving life sciences cluster was a big draw for Aequor to choose Basel for their office.
Aequor’s CEO and Chairman, Manmeet Virdi, stated, “The move to Basel was perfect in every way… from the beauty of the region to its diversity and thriving economic environment, as well as the political stability of the country. All these positive factors made our decision an easy one. Aequor is very pleased with our decision to locate our business in Basel.”
The BaselArea Economic Promotion Team stated, “We are extremely pleased with Aequor’s decision to select Basel as the focal point for servicing their renowned technology clients. We welcome Aequor Technologies to Basel’s family of prestigious global companies.”
