"Smithers Quality Assessments is focused on expanding our certification services to meet our clients' needs," said Jeannette Preston, president of Smithers Quality Assessments. "With the increasing demand for pharmaceuticals, we made the strategic decision to enhance our services to this important industry and to address the growing needs and requests of our current clients and prospects."
