North 51 Ltd acquired by Bionical

The North 51 founders – Phil Randall, Paul Dermody and Oliver Jackson believe that this exciting development presents North 51 with new opportunities for growth, both in the UK and internationally; especially as Bionical do not currently provide any of the services that North 51 offers and are keen to invest in the future of the business.

Founded in 2004, North 51 has since grown organically to employ almost 150 people. Via 3 Divisions North 51 delivers recruitment and contract sales solutions to the pharmaceutical industry, creates digital experiences and software products for organisations across the healthcare sector and runs outsourced Public Health services for the NHS and Local Authorities.

Bionical is a fast growing international business based locally in Derbyshire, also specialising in the healthcare sector. Bionical’s core business is in Clinical Trial Services and the acquisition of North 51 is their second such acquisition in the last few months, having acquired the US based company, McCallan, in July. McCallan are based just south of New York and specialise in pharma engagement, particularly with Primary Healthcare Professionals.
