Galena Pharma continues to pursuit growth with its new co-owner Intera Partners. “We want to grow in the international market in the coming years. The products we have developed and manufactured are already being exported to several countries and now, with the support of Intera Partners’ contacts and expertise, we can further support our internationalisation goals.” says Galena Pharma’s Managing Director Atte Kukkonen.

There will be a growing demand for Galena Pharma’s expertise in the future, especially in the medical device market. The level of requirements will increase, and legislation will be tightened in the coming years, which will provide international opportunities for Galena Pharma’s product development and its new innovations and services.

“Galena Pharma is a promising and successful company, and we want to support their growth. Through deep expertise and determined development, the company has become a leading player in the contract development and manufacturing (CDMO) field in Finland. With Intera’s co-ownership, Galena Pharma’s current entrepreneurs will receive even more support for internationalisation and growth,” says Arjo Laukia, a partner at Intera Partners.

Galena Pharma’s operations will continue as normal with the new co-owner, and the change will not affect the status of the company’s operational management or the personnel.
