Nijmegen (The Netherlands) – MercachemSyncom today announced that it will change its name and operate under the registered trade name of Symeres.
The new name reflects the strategic evolution of the company, with the growth of integrated drug discovery and development services, which complement the company’s strong reputation in synthetic discovery and development chemistry. Recent examples of this evolution include the acquisition of ADME-Tox provider Admescope in November 2020 and strategic alliances integrating our services with high-quality CROs in the fields of in vitro biology, biophysics, and structural biology.
The name Symeres (derived from Sy-ncom Me-rcachem res-research) and accompanying tagline “making molecules matter” are derived from the experience and success of the Syncom and Mercachem legacy organizations and their core strengths in innovative research.
Dr. Eelco Ebbers, CEO of Symeres, added,
“The evolution of MercachemSyncom into Symeres is representative of the continuing expansion of the organization and our move into integrated solutions for drug discovery and development services, alongside our strong chemistry-centric services. The most recent example being our acquisition of Admescope. We look forward to continuing our journey with our clients around the world under our new identity, without forgetting the core values of quality, integrity, transparency, and innovation that got us to where we are today.”
