[…] Clients » Kelados - know and be known


KELADOS works with a small range of companies and organisations, providing the support they need, when they need it.   These on-going relationships allow us to fully understand its clients' businesses, making us part of the team, and able to be fully responsive to their needs. 

KELADOS's considerable expertise in a range of business areas, combined with in-depth knowledge of the global biotech/life sciences industry and an extensive range of contacts means that the support that we provide need not be contrained. Indeed, the flexibility of support that we provide is one of the major benefits of these on-going relationships.

KELADOS is also able to take on short term ad-hoc projects for existing and new clients, recognising that companies often have specific outsourcing needs.
