Published in the July issue of Canadian Business and online at PROFITguide.com, the PROFIT 500 ranks Canadian businesses by their revenue growth over five years.
"The members of the PROFIT 500 are the elite of the country's entrepreneurial community," says James Cowan, Editor-in-Chief of Canadian Business and PROFIT. "Their stories are lessons in business strategy, innovation, management excellence and sheer tenacity."
"Therapure is honoured to be in the PROFIT 500 ranking," says Therapure President and CEO, Nick Green. "I am especially proud of our employees and our investors in that they have made such impressive performance possible. Our growth is based on a strong foundation of therapeutic protein manufacturing expertise, and it is supported by the enormous commitment, passion, and innovative thinking of our highly talented team. While not a factor in our current growth, I am equally proud of and excited by the advancement of our product development programs that offer significant promise for the future treatment of liver cancer, anemia and other unmet medical needs," says Green.
Since its entry into the Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization (CDMO) space in 2008, Therapure has achieved impressive growth, which includes the execution of more than thirty service contracts for developing and manufacturing biologic drugs with a broad spectrum of Canadian and international customers.
