  • Our company specializes in the development and production of plasma derivatives, an intricate biopharmaceutical manufacturing process. Once we’d selected Montreal to inaugurate our North American presence the next critical milestone was the sourcing of talent for various positions. Groom & Associates came highly recommended by one of our local contacts and after our initial meeting we were confident that this firm would facilitate our hiring needs. They successfully recruited key staff including Directors and Engineers and personnel for Regulatory Affairs, Validation, Quality Assurance, and Control, to name a few. In short, they proved to be highly experienced in pharma staffing, which they accomplished with professionalism and competence. Groom & Associates have become a true HR partner for Green Cross Biotherapeutics.
