Founded in 1980 and with premises based in the spectacular Wye Valley, Brecon Pharmaceuticals is one of the leading outsource service providers in the global pharmaceutical industry.

At the same time, Brecon has maintained its recruitment drive, which has seen an increase in its staff of over 10% in the same period.
Peter Belden, Managing Director comments: âThe recent expansion reflects our commitment to innovation and quality through continuous investment in our people, facilities and equipment â a policy that has been rewarded with an almost tenfold increase in sales since 2002.â
Belden continues âThe new site in Wales brings new opportunities for the area and the company is committed to recruiting local people from diverse background and providing them with training and expertise that are invaluable to personal development and to the development of the local economy.â
Brecon Pharmaceuticals and its sister company in the United States, Anderson Packaging, supports clients from the earliest stage of R&D through clinical trial and filing and on to commercialisation, packaging and supply. It works with a wide range of clients from small, âvirtualâ companies through to the biggest global pharmaceutical organisations.
