Copley is investing heavily into infrastructure, by expanding its UK HQ to reinforce the company’s export base, which currently supplies to over 90 countries globally. The investment also encompasses recruitment, with the current focus on strengthening customer-facing teams.

As the construction of the company’s new, extended HQ nears completion, Copley has welcomed a new recruit into its commercial and technical customer support team. With an MSc in Drug Discovery and Pharmaceutical Sciences and a background in contract research, Anna Sipitanou joins Copley as Business Development Manager.

Her appointment will provide Copley with additional technical and clinical expertise, and comprises another step in the company’s significant investment in business growth.

Mark Copley, Sales Director at Copley Scientific, comments “As a family run business, for over 70 years, Copley Scientific has put customer service at the heart of our business. We have always recognised the importance of training, technical support, and sharing of application knowledge with our customers. Our strong product portfolio, unparalleled market expertise and focus on customer service underpin our ongoing success. We are therefore investing in all of these areas in 2017, and we see the addition of new skills and extended capabilities into our teams enabling us to support more customers and more products, more frequently. With the addition of Anna to the team, I am looking forward to expanding the range of application support options available to enhance the sales experience.”
