The Ellab Group, a global leader in validation, calibration and monitoring solutions for the pharmaceutical, healthcare and food and beverage sectors, is expanding its workforce across the world to meet ambitious growth targets. Over 70 new employees are being recruited by the Group to add to the current roster of 545, with the appointments being made across nearly every department including operations, R&D, sales, marketing, top management, finance, HR, IT and field services.
The Danish company says most of the new posts are being created at its headquarters in Hilleroed, Denmark, but also benefiting significantly are the UK and USA operations. Ellab’s UK manufacturing business is known as Ellab Monitoring Solutions Ltd and serves the pharmaceutical, healthcare and food sectors. As a group Ellab brings significant knowledge and benefits to its pharma clients with a proven reputation in specialist disciplines including biotech, cell and gene therapy and CDMOs.
Despite the challenges of a global pandemic and the war in Ukraine, the Ellab Group says it is continuing to invest in staff so that it can improve its global reach – providing the best quality and services to a wider audience and together building confidence in consumer safety. The ambition of the Group is to continue with double-digit organic and acquisitive annual growth in the coming years.
Among the new senior positions announced are CFO Andreas Morthorst, who brings top level experience in developing business strategies for growth, and Vice-President Operations Steen Eriksen. Andreas also boats crucial knowledge in finance, IT, digitalization and mergers and acquisitions – particularly in mature organizations – and has 20 years’ experience in leadership and finance alone.
Steen has a valuable background within the operations area, including a great understanding of large businesses alongside management experience in scalability and optimization of the entire value stream from supplier to customer.
Andreas explains: “Ellab is a burgeoning business with an ambitious growth strategy and this has to be underpinned with more employees on all fronts and in more countries. This raft of appointments is not just in sales but a significant number of technical positions are also being filled, not least validation engineers, calibration technicians and production roles too.
“This is all part of our vision. We aim to continuously strengthen and improve the local experience of customers when dealing with any Ellab company at any location across the world – and building that mutual confidence in consumer safety requires the best colleagues in every role at every level within the Group.”
As well as its world-renowned validation, monitoring and calibration solutions and services, Ellab also provides class-leading GMP consulting and ancillary products to life science and food manufacturing companies globally.
