Sciformix Corporation has announced the opening of their new offices located in Manila, the Philippines. The expansion into Manila comes as part of Sciformix‘s continued growth and provides the opportunity for the company to utilize the region’s extensive resource of talented medical professionals.
Philippine Labor and Employment Secretary, Rosalinda Baldoz, welcomed the move by Sciformix and the opportunity for medical professionals to remain in the Philippines with attractive salaries and career opportunities.
“Sciformix’s continued growth and success has created an opportunity for our expansion into Manila, which is an important piece of our strategy and global footprint. As a leading SPO, this move takes us forward with the goal of adding more than 200 highly skilled employees in the Philippines”, said Manish Vinayak Soman, Sciformix President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
Sciformix, recent winner of Frost & Sullivan’s Pharmaceutical Knowledge Process Outsourcing (KPO) Entrepreneurial Company of the Year award, has experienced remarkable growth to become an SPO, a sub-category of KPO specializing in life sciences.
