MONTREAL - Atrion International has augmented its product development, regulatory services and marketing staff by 20 percent during the first quarter of FY‘09. This is as a result of a consistent double-digit growth rate of its enterprise and midmarket customer base. Atrion is accommodating a majority of this staff growth in its recently expanded worldwide headquarters with the addition of a second location at 4929 Place Olivia, Ville Saint-Laurent, Quebec. The expansion will enable Atrion to support the increasing global demand for its product compliance solutions. The new facilities will now house a portion of the company’s North American Marketing & Sales departments as well as the Global Finance department.
Atrion also continues to make significant investments in product development, new technologies and infrastructures to accommodate the increase in sales of its on-premise and SaaS solutions, as well as the increase in managed services and business process outsourcing (BPO) contracts.
"We’re seeing an influx of forward-thinking companies that have, despite tough economic times, elected to invest in a product compliance solution,” said Patrick Lavoie, President of Atrion International. “These companies want to stay on top of REACH and GHS regulatory demands to ensure that they are best positioned for expansion when economic conditions turn around. That they’ve repeatedly chosen to work with Atrion is a testimony to our respected track record and renowned industry expertise, as well as our long-standing position at the forefront of current and emerging regulatory compliance legislations.”
