A high-tech pharmaceutical company will bring up to 225 jobs to Clay County as part of a recently announced contact center.
TrialCard, a technology-enabled pharmaceutical solutions company headquartered in Morrisville, N.C., will open the center in 23,000 square feet of the Kansas City Business Center, 2001 NE 46th St. The location just south of the North Kansas City School District offices is expected to open this fall. The center will receive patient calls and communicate with outpatient care providers.
The area’s high-tech and startup-friendly environment, educated workforce and standard of living attracted the company. “We are pleased to be expanding into Kansas City, a vibrant community made up of thousands of small businesses, tech start-ups, and top-notch health care,” said Mark Bouck, president and CEO of TrialCard. “A diverse, highly-educated workforce, an affordable cost of living and numerous cultural amenities make Kansas City a very desirable place to live and work.”
The Clay County Economic Development Council was among the organizations working on the project for nearly a year. “We are thrilled to have TrialCard join us in Clay County,” noted EDC Executive Director TJ Berry. “It’s also significant that they recognized our outstanding setting for starting and growing a business. We work very hard on that.”
Other organizations involved were the state of Missouri, the Missouri Partnership, the Kansas City Economic Development Council, Kansas City Power & Light, Spire Energy, Cushman & Wakefield and the CBRE Group.
