Parata To Open New Headquarters In Durham To Continue Enhanced Collaboration And Growth
Pharmacy Technology Company To Complete 100,000 Square Foot Facility In 2017
Durham, N.C., January 19, 2017 – Pharmacy technology provider Parata Systems began construction on a new headquarters to promote collaboration, employee and customer engagement, as well as to sustain current growth and enable planned future growth. Brokered by Brad Armstrong and Doug Brock at Newmark Grubb Knight Frank and developed by Brookwood Capital Partners, the build-to-suit facility is located at 106 Roche Drive and is part of Alexander Industrial Park.
The new facility will bring Parata’s manufacturing, distribution, and corporate offices into a single location. The 100,000 square-foot, two-floor space is designed to promote the open collaboration of Parata employees across departments and support improved productivity. To do so, the facility features a greater number of conference rooms, larger collaboration areas and a central breakroom designed to enable company-wide team events.
“This strategic move will bring all Parata business units under a single roof for the first time since 2007, after multiple acquisitions and bringing manufacturing in-house,” said Parata CEO DJ Dougherty. “Since then, Parata has received recognition for our thriving North Carolina-based manufacturing business and our industry-driven innovations in pharmacy technology and patient care. We believe uniting our team in a single location will make us even stronger.”
The new location will also support enhanced collaboration with Parata customers and business partners, showcasing the full scope of Parata operations. This includes Parata’s new Vision Center, an interactive space fully equipped with Parata’s pharmacy automation technologies. It functions like a real world pharmacy, giving prospects and partners an opportunity to experience Parata technology first-hand. Additionally, visitors can see the manufacturing floor through a wall of windows, where Parata’s technology is being built, tested, and prepared for delivery.
“When pharmacies choose Parata technology, they’re investing in more than a robot – they’re investing in the team behind the technology. We want to take care of that team so they can best service our clients, and our new space is evidence of this,” said Mark Longley, Parata’s EVP, Sales and Business Development. “The new floorplan is designed to create a collaborative and cohesive environment to foster creativity and productivity and enable our anticipated growth.”
