On heels of Es­sex deal, CRO Emmes says it's plan­ning to make more ac­qui­si­tions this year

Emmes, a con­tract re­search or­ga­ni­za­tion that re­cent­ly ac­quired Es­sex Man­age­ment, said it has plans to make more “medi­um to larg­er scale deals” in Eu­rope and Latin Amer­i­ca over the next two years.

In March, the Rockville, MD-based com­pa­ny ac­quired Es­sex, a provider of bioin­for­mat­ics and health in­for­ma­tion tech to gov­ern­ment, pri­vate sec­tor and aca­d­e­m­ic or­ga­ni­za­tions. The com­pa­nies al­ready share some of the same cus­tomers, in­clud­ing the Na­tion­al Can­cer In­sti­tute and oth­er agen­cies with­in the Na­tion­al In­sti­tutes of Health. It was Emmes’ sixth deal in two years.
