We are adding a highly experienced team to the business and further diversifying our customer base – both important objectives of the CROS NT Group. We will move our UK Headquarters to Maidenhead, giving us a great location in terms of on-going recruitment and access by our customers given its proximity to London. Coming shortly after our acquisition of Stat-tech Services in the USA, this deal demonstrates our commitment to place expertise close to our customers and to grow to meet the increasing demand for our services."
