Chemical research and development company High Force Research is preparing to fly the North East flag in the United States, Japan and Australia.

Dr Stella James, head of business development at the Bowburn firm, is in America for the 2015 Pharmaceutical ChemOutsourcing conference and exhibition, which brings together buyers and suppliers from pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.

She will then be part of a UK delegation targeting the Australian market at the AusBiotech exhibition in Melbourne in October, before flying on to BioJapan in Yokohama as part of an EU mission for companies in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology field.

“The majority of our clients are European-based but we want to expand those boundaries and show that a North East company can be at the forefront of chemical research and development,” she said.
