Avista Pharma Named One of Triangle Business Journal’s Fast 50 Companies for 2018

Avista Pharma has been named one of Triangle Business Journal’s Fast 50 Companies for 2018.


Leading to our company’s growth over the last three years, we have invested over $35 million in facility upgrades and capacity expansion while significantly growing our scientific team. Our clients have responded to these investments by expanding the breadth of work they do with us, and we have added over 75 new clients in 2018 alone. In response to this increasing demand, we have added over 100 employees during the last year across all of our company’s locations and disciplines.


We are honored to receive this award in a region with a demonstrated track record of economic and corporate success, and we could not have achieved this growth without our dedicated clients and employees.


In its 26th year of celebration, the Fast 50 awards recognize the fastest growing private companies in the Triangle region of North Carolina. The Fast 50 winners were selected and ranked based on a formula that counts revenue growth and profitability in the preceding three years (2015-2017). The winning companies were celebrated at the Fast 50 award celebration November 5, 2018.
