Founded in 2010, Axtria works with the 20 leading international life sciences firms, according to information from the company itself. Headquartered in the US state of New Jersey with a stronghold in India, the provider of cloud software and data analysis solutions aims to make decision-making processes easier for its clients by offering them the tools necessary for targeted research data analysis. To provide these services, Axtria relies on well-trained employees. This is just one of the reasons why the company has now decided on Basel as a new location. Basel Area Business & Innovation, the investment and innovation promotion agency, supported Axtria during the process of founding Axtria Swiss GmbH.

Axtria presently employs around 2,000 members of staff across the world. Of this number, 800 were only hired in 2020 alone. At the company headquarters in New Jersey, Axtria has been listed as one of the state’s 50 fastest-growing companies for seven successive years. “We are proud of our substantial growth within the market, and our investments within the company reflect our commitment to continue that progress”, comments Jaswinder Chadha, co-founder and CEO of Axtria. Chadha goes on to describe Europe and the USA as the company’s most important markets. With the opening of new offices, Axtria employees will be in a position to “make an impact in the life sciences industry”.

In this context, the company also underlines that its Basel office is part of a long-term corporate strategy that aims to operate in close proximity to its customers. Basel is, after all, home to numerous companies active in the field of life sciences. Moreover, Axtria’s growth will be advanced by well-trained employees. For this reason, Basel is a prime location for the company from which it can implement plans to drive both sales and therefore growth as well.
