Swindon-based Wasdell Group is continuing its international expansion,
thanks in part to the efforts of local Qualified Person Raj Gaur.
As the pharmaceutical company’s latest recruit, Raj has been
instrumental in the international development of the business, leading on the
establishment of the Group’s quality testing laboratory in their Dundalk
premises in Ireland.
The laboratory is an extension of Wasdell’s service in
testing pharmaceutical products to ensure that they meet regulatory standards
and are safe and consistent for the general public.
Raj joined Wasdell in Swindon in September 2020 with 27
years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry, including roles such as
Associated Director of Quality, Head of Quality, Qualified Person and RP(I).
In order to successfully establish the Dundalk lab, which
has now been approved by the Irish Authority and the Health Products Regulatory
Authority and is fully functional, Raj specified the scientific instruments
required, as well as the necessary quality management system and standard
operating procedures, which are the backbone of every pharmaceutical set up.
Raj said, “Joining
Wasdell has given me opportunities in the distribution and manufacturing and
packaging areas of the industry. It was attractive to be part of a
growing quality team, which will be approaching 40 people across Swindon and
Dundalk by the end of the year. The combination of international expansion
opportunities, plus the ability to work flexibly has made the move to Wasdell
the right choice for me.
is a fantastic, modern and sophisticated facility that allows us to develop our
services and overcome issues posed by Brexit. This is a very exciting time
for Wasdell as we continue to develop our offering in both the UK and Ireland,
including testing and supporting clinical trials of new pharmaceutical
products, and also now with the capacity and expertise to add and develop new
services according to our clients’ needs.”
