Expertise and passion for your business success

It focuses on supporting healthcare professionals and patients at all stages of the product life cycle. Whatever the challenge, we can ensure your success and we will work with you to agree the best approach.
From the launch of a novel chemical entity or supporting an established brand, to managing late lifecycle opportunities (such as generic or OTC propositions), our bespoke sales solutions will achieve your goals.
• Reduce time to peak sales or protect mature products from share erosion
• Devise and deliver tailored commercial strategies to attract new and diverse customer groups
• Help you effectively engage with payors, specialists, GPs, pharmacies, nurses or a combination of professionals
• Assess market potential to deliver successful sales solutions

As an international business, there are a variety of additional services such as healthcare communications, meetings and events and medical information which we can provide in Germany.
Ashfield has grown by acquiring businesses that share the same values and standards as us, and this has been key to our success. Established in the UK in 1997, Ashfield became the largest UK contract sales organisation by 2005. Through strategic acquisitions and ambitious growth plans, we now have offices in 25 countries, over 7000 staff, and a comprehensive range of pharmaceutical services such as healthcare communications, market research, training, pharmacovigilance and nursing capabilities.
