Back in the day, we had this great client named Metrics. They were easy-going and fun to work with, with a unique personality that set them apart from other pharmaceutical companies. But they were also smart, driven and had a great business plan to build an analytical lab in Eastern North Carolina.
That was in 2001, and Metrics’ business has changed and grown substantially from a start-up analytical lab into one of the fastest-growing contract pharmaceutical development and manufacturing organizations in the United States.
Over the past ten years, we’ve seen Metrics change and evolve as their business and the market they serve has grown. When we had our first meeting, it was in a closet of an office in a small building in Greenville, NC. Now, Metrics has their own 96,000 square foot facility, built to exacting cGMP standards and equipped with state-of-the-art pharmaceutical drug development and manufacturing equipment. They even have a dedicated lab on-site for potent and cytotoxic testing that is the first of its kind in the US.
Haven’t heard of Metrics? We’re not sure why. They’ve been recognized by the Pitt County Economic Development Commission as “Business of the Year” and as a “Business Champion” by Business Leader Magazine and Wake Tech Community College. They have recruited some of the best minds in pharmaceutical development, expanded their services with a presence on the West coast, and one of their founders, Dr. Bray, was even Tarheel of the Week in the Raleigh News & Observer.
After all this time, we like to look back and see how we were able to help a great company like Metrics become a leader in their field. Sinclair & Co. is proud to say we’ve worked with Metrics 10 years, and we’re looking forward to many more!
