Chemical Computing Group Opens Office in Cambridge, UK
MONTREAL and CAMBRIDGE, UK, March 26, 2002
Chemical Computing Group AG. (CCG) is expanding by opening an office in Cambridge, UK, in order to strengthenits presence in Europe and serve its fast-growing existing customer basethere. The office is located at St. Johns Innovation Centre, at the northend of Cambridge, which is seen as an ideal location due to the largecluster of technology-based companies, including biotech andpharmaceuticals, in the region. This effectively doubles CCG's Europeanoperations, supplementing the existing office at Lorrach, Germany. TheCambridge office will service customers in the UK, Ireland, Benelux andScandanavia.
Dr Stephen J. Maginn, recently Manager of Support and Marketing at the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC), has joined CCG to set up and run the new office. "This is a great opportunity both for CCG and for me personally," said Dr Maginn. "CCG with its MOE software, and the way in which they interact with their customers, has set new standards in the industry, and I am very much looking forward to helping to extend this to Northern Europe by establishing a firm presence here for the company."
Bill Hayden, CCG's Vice President of Sales and Marketing, is equally enthusiastic. "We see great possibilities for growth in Europe," he said. "We have made a great start with our office in Germany, manned by Dr Wolfram Altenhofen. With the addition of Dr. Maginn in the UK, we will be able to exploit those possibilities and expand our presence further. In the near future, we foresee CCG providing customer support locally within Europe, so there is plenty of room for expansion."
