Fishers-based Verista, a life sciences compliance and automation company, has acquired Hawkins Point in Massachusetts. Verista says the acquisition will improve its services and capabilities by adding research and development and commercialization technology for large pharma, early-stage biotech and medical device companies.
Verista says the acquisition leverages its capabilities in FDA-regulated services in information technology and manufacturing technology. Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
“Adding the Hawkins Point team’s deep expertise in R&D and commercialization services is a natural extension of Verista’s capabilities in compliance, automation and validation solutions,” says Manny Soman, chief executive officer of Verista. “Together, we will expand Verista’s geographic reach into New England with synergized services for the highly regulated life sciences arena.”
Verista says the addition of Hawkins’ more than 100 employees brings Verista’s total employee base to about 500.
