PILS (Partners In Life Science) was born in 2014 between Yitch and QbD.
Now, 4 years later, PILS has grown to a group of enthusiastic, ambitious and customer-driven companies, with a strong focus on life sciences.
Based on the belief that together we’re stronger and we’ll be able to create more value for our customers, we follow the different market developments and trends. Sharing knowledge with each other is one of our focus points.
The high level of complementarity, transparency and trust between the PILS members creates strong synergies. Solutions which go beyond what a single company can achieve individually are created that way.
The expertise we gain within the PILS network enables us to provide an appropriate response to our customer’s questions in an increasingly rapidly evolving context.
