Currently, NAMSA has around 1,000 employees and has offices in eight countries on four continents. The headquarters of NAMSA is located in Toledo, Ohio.
One of the most important strategic reasons for NAMSA's decision to open a laboratory in Bayerischer Untermain is the economic strength of the FrankfurtRheinMain region. In addition, the region is a recognized pharmaceutical location and is home to a large number of biopharmaceutical manufacturers and life science companies.“, explains Jens Marco Scherf, the District Executive of the Miltenberg district.
