Warsaw, IN – Network Partners, a high-growth professional services firm, is pleased to announce the acquisition of The FlexPro Group, LLC, a Pennsylvania-based project management consulting firm, focused solely on the life sciences industry.
FlexPro is headquartered in Greater Philadelphia with primary service offerings of project management in drug product development, commercialization, and supply chain optimization.
With its core expertise in professional project execution coupled with deep subject matter knowledge, FlexPro’s industry-certified experts utilize proven project management processes and strong technical and scientific capability to deliver results on-time and on-budget. The new product development of drugs is a very complex process; engaging FlexPro’s services increases the probability of successful commercialization of these assets so patients have access to new therapies sooner. Additionally, with the ever-changing landscape of supply chains in the industry, FlexPro works to optimize these supply chain processes to provide a solid return on investment for its clients.
Founded in 2008, FlexPro’s clients include the top global pharmaceutical giants as well as emerging biotechnology companies.
The acquisition of FlexPro is in line with Network Partners’ company strategy to expand its Regulatory Affairs, Quality Assurance, Packaging Engineering, Cold Chain and Labeling services to the broader life sciences industry in pharmaceutical and biotechnology. FlexPro’s offerings are highly complementary to the existing range of services provided by Network Partners, who are leaders in providing professional services to the Medical Device industry. Adding FlexPro’s 40+ team members to Network Partners’ current 175-member team positions the company to meet the ever-growing client demand for high performing life sciences professionals.
FlexPro has received multiple recognitions including America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies by Inc. Magazine, Top 25 Management Consulting Firm by The Philadelphia Business Journal, and Corporate Culture Award Winner by SmartCEO.
